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.

Seatbelt would not latch. The buckle would not click. Something is broken inside the female end. The part is over $400! with the labor, this is $565 for a seat belt buckle.

I own 2006 Hyundai sonata, and the air bags lights warning lights are constantly illuminated. I brought my vehicle to the dealer who performed a diagnostic and came back with eror codes B1706, although the meaning was not explained, due to reasaerch I performed I now know that it is for passenger buckle pretensioner resistance being too high. I found this particularly odd as I use this as my car to commute to work thus the passenger seat is rarely used. The dealer went on to say that the belt buckles needed to be replaced and that it was going to cost over $600. I did not have adequate funds to adress the issue for that amount at that time, however came home and performed extensive reasearch on-line and through the NHTSA site regarding the issue noting that this is a very common safety issue with this vehicle imparticular, although my dealer had assured me it was not. What I did not see was any response from Hyundai regarding this issue, and in most circomstances the effected person was responded to, or was resonded to in a negative manner. This is a potentionaly major life thretening safety issue especially when air bags does not deploy during an accedent. It is also an inconvient problem noting that due to the air bag warning light remaining on, the car will not pass inspection regulations, and from what I have seen online some people have to have this piece replaced several times. This is a saftey issue and a failure on the manufactures part to offer a safe product. I urge the NHTSA to investigate the issue due to the frequency of complaints and the impact to the passengers' safety and urge hyundi to issue a recall to address this issue in the near future.
