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

Est Feb 11, 2014. Driving on the pa turnpike and next thing I know the engine quit. Tried putting car in neutral and restart but it wouldn't. was able to pull across 5 lanes of turnpike traffic to side - put in park and restarted. 13 April, 2014. In parking lot with motor running. Accidentally hit base of key chain and car shut off. Key still in and on the position of started mode - like I hadn't turn it off. Reported 2X to limerick Hyundai in Pennsylvania. Their suggestion is to take off house keys, small carabineer and just use car key only and alone. I noted that there was play in the key when in the ignition and asked if there might be a lose wire or if I should replace the ignition key lock. They didn't recommend it. Wondered if taking the key in and out couldn't have triggered a problem.
