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.

I was driving on hwy 60, towards lexington va. This is a narrow four lane, divided by a grassy median, there are very few places to pull over. As I was driving uphill, at about 55 mph, my hood flew up and smashed against the windshield, and wrapped around the roof of the car. I was passing a log truck when this happened, and there wasn't anywhere to pull over, so I drove looking through the curve under the hood, and used all of my mirrors until I could get to a safe place to pull over. My 13 yr. Old son was in the passenger side, and we were both completely in shock. The damage to my car, approximately $4000. The other complaint I have is I had to wait 8 weeks for Hyundai to get a hood for my cars, make, model and year. They said, the hoods were on back order and they didn't know when thy would be able to get my hood. I had to pay for the damage with my insurance, I think Hyundai should pay for all of the expenses, that everyone incurred from this defect. Not just the rise in insurance premiums, but also, the rental cars.
