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.

problem #1

Santa Fe 4-cyl

  • 6,700 miles
6/25/13 my wife was traveling approximately 45mph on a 95 degree day (Florida) when the air conditioner briefly blew hot air then stop producing any air period. The A/C light turned off and none of the other buttons would work. She took it to the local Hyundai dealership where they kept it for the day. She was advised they were unable to duplicate the incident, the vehicles computer did not show any errors, and the air performed properly for them. 7/10/13 my wife was traveling on the interstate at approximately 70mph and the air conditioner stopped blowing again. The A/C light was not illuminated and the air flow dial would not respond. She took it to the local dealership again and kept the vehicle running for the service tech to view. The service tech was dumbfounded by the incident. The vehicle was turned off and restarted and the air began to blow without issue. We have not picked up the vehicle yet but will update when its returned.
