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 note that my air bag sensor light for the passenger front seat is on and I have had the light reset more than several times. When driving the light will go on again and again. I have the dealer look at this problem twice and they have reset the light and that did not work. On 4.26.2016 the dealer took the seat out and cleaned all of the connections and sealed with connecter sealant. The dealer stated on the bill that if the light comes on again then they will have to order a front seat assembly. The light came back on 4.26.2016 three hours later. I drove to work 4.27.2016 and the light remained on. My concern is why the consumer has to bear the cost of this safety issue and that my family is in danger because of the safety issue in regards to the air bag issue I am having. I do not think it is fair to the consumer that they have to pay out of pocket to fix something that cannot be fixed and there is not any sort of solution to fix this issue the first time when I tried to get it fixed. The dealer told me that the sensor works fine and they seemed to be confused on how to address this issue the first or second time. There are a lot of forums out on the website like edmunds.com with Hyundai having the air bag sensor issue. Is this a ploy for Hyundai to force you to buy a new car that is 8 years old and only having 85,080 miles on the car. I am very concerned for the safety of my family and the time and money that I have put in to trying to make my 2007 Santa Fe safe. I hope that the government steps in to help product the consumers before passengers get severely injured or killed because of this safety issue. It appears that this issue from brand new cars and used cars.

Santa Fe

  • 60,000 miles
I bought my Santa Fe in 2008, with 12,000 miles on it. I've had to replace a gas pedal switch, gear shift switch, gas gauge switch, driver's seat switch, two batteries replaced, the driver's visor hung down, both hydraulics lifts gate replace, backseat left side door lock replace and still doesn't work right and of course the ESC light problems. All the problems started in January 2015.
