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.

Jun 212009

Santa Fe

  • 300 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. The contact stated that there was a factory decal indicating that the load carrying capacity was reduced. He contacted the dealer and was told that they did not put the decals on the vehicle and had no knowledge how to update them. The manufacturer was also unable to assist the contact on how to correct the decal. The vehicle also hydroplaned while driving the vehicle in the rain which caused him to be concerned about the tires. The tires were Bridgestone dueler H/T tires size P235/60/R18. The dot code was unavailable. The current mileage was approximately 3,400. The failure mileage was approximately 300.
