Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

When 2005 Santa Fe accelerator pedal is depressed it has a delayed reaction. ***** the consumer stated when the delayed acceleration occurred it caused the tires to spin on wet or snow covered pavement. The starter had to turn over much longer than it should before the engine starts. The brakes would catch as if something in the braking system was loose, there was a grinding/rubbing sound when the brakes were partially applied. The consumer believed there was a power steering fluid leak.
