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.

The screen on the gps unit cracked as I was cleaning it. I had the car for 10 months with 7000 miles on the car. Hyundai has refused to replace the unit. I am unable to download updates, the continuity is broken. The car was parked and in my driveway as I was cleaning it.

The electronic key system of this car has a big flaw. The doors do not lock even after multiple activation through the lock button of the electronic key when the engine is left running. The behavior is unlike other cars such as Nissan Altima, which locks the door.S. this behavior makes it much more likely for someone to inadvertently walk away from the car with engine running leaving the doors unlocked.
