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.

While driving at a slow speed the power steering went out and car dash lights went out and car appeared to have stalled and within a few seconds the power steering was again engaged. This occurred as I was rounding a curve in the road. Dealer could find nothing wrong with car.

Update for my 2007 Santa Fe steering, pulling. I went to the better business bureau the report came back there is a normal pull to the right. The consumer should be told about this problem since it affects the tires wearing out sooner than the tire manufactures states. There is a heavy pull when you accelerate hard at about 40 mph. Is this normal" the wheel really turns the wheel to a half a turn to the right. Of course you have to hold the wheel but you feel it pulling. When you test the pulling on a safe area let loose of the wheel a little then you'll feel it move. I'm afraid when you tap the gas pedal a little on the days it snows; do you pass or not pass, anyone or what"

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. The contact accelerated to pass another vehicle and the steering felt light, as if it were lifting off the ground. The steering wheel pulls to the right and he must overcompensate to the left to correct the failure. The contact released the accelerator pedal and the failure stopped. He called the dealer once he arrived to his residence and asked someone to return his call; however, no one has yet responded. Prior to this failure, the contact took the vehicle to the dealer for similar failures and they rotated the tires; however, the failure continues. Through online research, he discovered two complaints for the same failure. He also stated that the tire pressure was correct according to the monitoring system. The speed was unknown. The failure mileage was 4,000 and current mileage was 5,100.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. The vehicle was initially taken to the dealer because there was a power steering reservoir leak. The front steering rack was replaced with a new one at that time. The new front steering rack developed a leak and the vehicle was returned to the dealer for repair. He is currently preparing to take the vehicle back to the dealer for the same failure, as well as a new one. While driving over a bump at any speed, making a turn, or backing out of a parking lot, the steering wheel moves from center and goes to either the left or right side. In addition, the ESC light illuminates and disables the feature. The VIN and purchase date were unknown. The current mileage was 10,000 and failure mileage was 9,000.
