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.

Dealership states brakes are normal. They said all Hyundai car brakes makes noise; worked on air bag light - stated it was on due to someone giving a jump in my car, light came back on 3 days later; changed a switch which was causing no acceralation, car still not getting the acceration it should. Now I'm getting some humming noise from the dashboard somewhere. I have had this car 8 month. It is a lemon and jacobs twin continues to put a band-aid on a patient bleeding to death.
