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.

2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

Santa Fe 6-cyl

After engine is warm, about 20 minutes later, there is a gurgling in the fuel tank when the key is turned on (before and after the engine is started). I think it is fuel being returned from the engine. I have had it in two different Hyundai service shops, with the fuel pump replaced twice, and a fuel pressure regulator replaced. Having given up, both shops contacted the district Hyundai office and a field service adviser told the local shops to show the event as "normal". it is not normal and I think the Hyundai district office is hiding the problem. Could be a fuel system problem and could be a safety hazard if fuel starts leaking. Both local service departments now show the problem as "normal" and nothing more will be done on this problem. I believe a recall for this problem is appropriate.
