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.

2001 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012002

Sonata 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My brakes are squeaking loudly and grinding terribly however every time I go to the dealear for this they can never seem to duplicate the problem. I keep taking in to cover myself for the simple fact that if my front end falls to the ground as the vehicle sounds as if though it will I can have documents from the dealer that never seem to duplicate the problem. What other steps can I take in getting this resolved the dealer has told me that's normal for a Hyundai I love my car other than that I'm paying for a 2001 it should not sound as if I'm driving a hooptie everytime I pull up to a stop sign.
