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

2008 Hyundai Santa Fe low beam headlights. While driving on an un-lighted or hilly roadway, there was a discernable horizontal line between the lighted roadway and darkness. The consumer could see the line about 3 feet above the road surface. The line also extended off to the side of the vehicle. At times, the lighted roadway was less than 30 feet while going up and down the hilly road. The consumer believed that 30 feet or less was too short of a lighted lane of travel. A visual inspection, showed the low beam headlight was mounted too far behind the front of the vehicle, which caused the hood to block the low beam reflecting up.
