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 172011

Santa Fe V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles


WE had problems 3 months after we brought it; losses power steering,brakes and lights. We had the car in the dealership's shop 7 times. It has costed me work time and a big inconvenience. It is going to kill someone or me. It only happens when going up hills. It only happens occassionally. We had it on the computer 7 times. It even happened to the dealership's Hyundai repair guy who dropped me off and drove it to the shop. They will not help us . The dealship it the worst. They are rude and condensending to women. They treat me like I am stupid and I have a Master's Degree. The company is not much better. They told me it does not happen often. It losses power steering, brakes and all power! Really, It is not a issue. I just could kill myself and the kids in the car. I will never buy another KIA or Hyundai or from this dealership. They are the worst.
