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.

2008 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 112008

Santa Fe 6-cyl

  • 4,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe. The contact purchased the vehicle for its fuel economy and weight capacity to tow a trailer. At the dealer, the weight capacity was listed as 3,197 in the rear and 2,976 in the front. The contact received a recall letter, which decreased the weight capacity of the vehicle. The contact feels that the manufacturer was misleading since he believed that the vehicle could tow a certain amount of weight as discussed at the dealer. The contact does not want to drive the vehicle and feels that his family's lives could be in danger. The failure mileage was 4,000. Updated 09/10/08 updated 09/17/08.
