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.

- the contact stated that in late December the airbag light turned on and stayed on. She took the 2001 Hyundai Sonata to the dealership, and found that the vehicle warranty ran out. The dealership informed the contact that the diagnostic test revealed fault code B1382, the passenger's side airbag resistance was high. The contact called the manufacturer, and they informed her that they would not repair the airbag without cost. The general manager of the Hyundai dealership stated that they would pay for the cost of the airbags, but that she would be responsible for the labor. The contact filed a complaint with the manufacturer.. the contact found a recall 01V247000 on line for airbags for her vehicle with campaign# 01V347000, for frontal airbags. The contact felt that the manufacturer and the dealership should be responsible for the malfunctioning of the airbag. The current mileage was 5600, and the failure mileage was 55643.

: the contact stated there was a problem with the air bag sensor. The air bag warning light illuminated intermittently when the driver or passenger seat was adjusted. This issue was related to the driver and passenger seat air bag only. There were no warning signals prior to the incident. The vehicle was taken to the dealership where the connector was repaired. They also determined that the repair would not be permanent and the problem may reoccur.
