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

Santa Fe 6-cyl

There is a problem with the accelerator on the Hyundai Santa Fe 2007 version. After the second repair attempt the dealer called the regional person and they offered a third solution because that person "had seen this problem before". the third solution did not work as well. The problem is that without notice you simply have no acceleration. Engine runs and there seems to be power but there's no acceleration. It's happened to my wife 3 times pulling out in front of traffic. They have replaced: A pedal sensor and entire gas pedal assembly, repaired a connection to the aps sensor, and as directed by the regional person they replaced the "throttle body assembly" and today, 4/29, the car would not accelerate at a stop light and then violently lunged forward.
