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 6-cyl

The right front coil spring broke while car was moving. The end of the broken spring caused a tire failure. 6 days later the left front coil spring broke. I was able to stop the car before it caused any other damage.

Santa Fe

  • 40,120 miles
The left front coil spring on my 2005 Hyundai sante fe broke while taking off from a stop causing the left front tire to blow out and the brake line to be damaged. It was brought to the dealer the spring, on the right hand side of the vehicle was found to be broken as well. Both front springs, left tire and brake line were replaced. I asked the service writer at the dealer if he's seen this before and he said he had one other time. This issue should be looked into with the sante fe's as these parts should not have broke on a vehicle with 40,000 miles on it, as well as if I were at highway speed I'm quite sure there would have been a bad accident.
