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.

2000 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 102008

Sonata V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles


Bought car with about 96,000 miles on it in January 2008 from a guy I had bought 2 cars from before. Noticed tire wearing I thought was due to alignment, took car in for re-alignment. To my shock and horror received call shortly thereafter that subframe was almost completely rotted on passenger front and wheel was pitched in which was reason for tire wear. Happily dealer (whom buys from auctions) said that original dealer must have covered damage (more than likely duct tape and paint, as I had looked car over before buying and saw nothing). Dealer paid half of replacement cost despite being far past warranty. No major problems since, I see there is a recall pending for this problem, doubt it would affect me now.
