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.

Santa Fe

  • 1,000 miles


The contact owns a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe. While driving approximately 50 mph in the snow, the contact activated the front windshield wipers. Snow began to accumulate at the base of the windshield wipers, which prevented the windshield wipers from going down. As a result, the wipers became inoperable. The failure recurred three times. The dealer diagnosed that the windshield wipers were functioning as designed. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 1,000.
