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.

2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

2007 Hyundai sante-fe purchased new from plaza Hyundai, ltd, 2740 nostrand avenue in 2006, on October 3, 2007 while sitting in vehicle I noticed smoke coming from the dashboard and then the windshield cracked. I took the vehicle to plaza Hyundai, they insisted the damage was caused by a rock and said I should contact my insurance company which I did, their investigation found that the damage was caused by a "defective wiring in the defroster caused a fire which resulted in damage to windshield." This report was given to the dealership and still they refuse to repair my vehicle. Due to serious health issues, I have not been able to pursue this issue and the vehicle has been in storage. I have resumed my attempts to get Hyundai to take responsibility for the damages and fix the faulty wiring, as of 2/22/10 they still refuse to even inspect the vehicle. The vehicle is defective and I was advised not to drive it again until the problem was solved. I paid over $30,000 for the vehicle and have been unable to use it.
