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.

On my 2007 Hyundai sante fe: Check engine light is on. ESC off light is on. Cruise control has stopped working. I have found that there is a NHTSA action #peo9003 and also a NHTSA recall campaign number 09V122000 to replace the stop lamp switch which causes these malfunctions.. in a letter from Hyundai motor America (campaign 092/ 09-01-018) dated Jun 2009, it states that these malfunctions may lead to a crash. Yet, when I took my car to the Hyundai dealer they refused to replace the stop lamp switch at no charge to me as stated in the letter. The Hyundai technical service bulletin states that dealers must perform this campaign on all affected vehicles whenever an affected vehicle is in the shop for any maintenance or repair. I have had my vehicle in the shop several times for unrelated issues since 2009 but this repair was never mentioned, offered or performed. I feel that I am driving an unsafe vehicle and Hyundai is avoiding a major safety issue.

We own a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. There was a recall on a faulty brake lamp switch. We had that replaced by the dealer. Our vehicle is now encountering problems with it applying brakes for no reason while operating it on the roadways.we have yet to have had an accident, even though the vehicle brakes and slows on its own without notice and for no reason. We have been told that the yaw sensor is bad. We are lucky that no accident has occurred as of yet because of this problem. I saw that there was a recall on the 2005 Hyundai tuscons for this or a similar problems with the yaw sensor. Is there or will there be a recall on the Santa Fe's now or in the near future for this braking system which is unsafe? the dealer wants to sell us the defective and dangerous part for $493 plus tax and between $200 and $300 labor to install. You need to look into this dangerous and defective part. Thanks, greg johnston.
