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

Apr 182013

Santa Fe 4-cyl

  • 4,500 miles


Driving on the highway, 65mph I heard a loud bang as if something hit the car. However, this was not the case. I look up that back fixed panel to the panoramic moonroof, the back pain of glass had cracked into a "million little pieces" but still remained intact. The back seat was noted to have numerous glass shavings all over. Upon further inspection when I pulled over, there was a hole no bigger than a dime shape. This hole, assuming was the point of impact, was located on the back of the second panel, near where the glass meets the sheet metal. Assuming that a piece of debris hit it, I had it fixed as a glass claim through my insurance. Upon further research, it seems that this will be the second complaint for this model year, with another Hyundai model with an active recall for the same issue.
