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.

2005 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

Santa Fe

The car is registered to me and my daughter uses it. She went to get an oil change and was advised that there was a serious situation with corrosion in the front coil spring and it is dangerous to drive as it could cause a tire to blow out. A week later I received an "interim notice" of an important safety recall from Hyundai. Apparently there is no remedy at this time. I called two dealers and they have no parts or instructions to remedy the situation at this time. When will there be a remedy? hopefully it happens before a fatality occurs!
