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.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 212015

Santa Fe 4-cyl

  • 22,350 miles


Car in front of me stopped to avoid running red light at intersection. I tried to brake and thought my anti-lock brakes would stop me but they failed to work properly and I hit the car in front of me. There was very little damage to the car in front of me but $8,000 damage to my car. I took the car to the Hyundai dealer and asked them to check out my brakes and they put their computer on my car and said everything was ok. I have since tested the "anti-lock" on my brakes and they provide too much "anti-lock" and I know how anti-lock should work locking and quickly releasing repeatedly until stopping, but these brakes do not work like that with a feeling of being on ice until just before stopping to work like my previously cars have worked.
