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

  • 65,300 miles


I am having the same symptoms shown below in my 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe. So far I do not see a recall notice from Hyundai. NHTSA campaign id number: 09V122000 PE09003 NHTSA action number: PE09003 component: Service brakes, hydraulic:switches:brake light potential number of units affected: 531894 summary: Hyundai is recalling 531,894 my 2006-2007 accent, entourage, sonata, my 2007 Azera, elantra and Santa Fe, my 2005-2007 tucson and my 2007-2008 veracruz vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause the brake lights to remain illuminated when the brake pedal is released. A stop lamp switch malfunction may affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature so the transmission shifter would not be able to be shifted out of park position. It may also cause the electronic stability control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate, and it may not deactivate the cruise control when the brake pedal is depressed.
