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.

In an emailed response, the Hyundai motor corporation is deflecting a malfunction and possible safety issue with its redesigned 2013 model vehicles" bluetooth functionality to wireless carriers and/or phone manufactures" equipment when it is evident that the issue is with their component(s). Issue: - at approximately the 14:45 to 15:00 minute call duration, the vehicle's bluetooth mutes the drivers" communication. This causes an undue necessity for the drivers to manually manipulate the vehicle?S components or the drivers? personal handset, to continue the communication. The type of phone and carrier determines the extent of the drivers? unnecessary action. This distraction undermines the safety benefits associated with bluetooth hands-free motor vehicle operation. Evidence: - various phone manufacturers" handsets (thru multiple carriers) exhibit the same issue. Furthermore, internet research finds the same problem being reported by different 2013 Hyundai vehicle owners. considering the consequences of distracted motor vehicle operation this issue should be considered by the NHTSA for further review.
