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.

2002 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 092010

Sonata 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles


I have a Sonata 2.7 V6 (2002 model) automatic transmission. The major 2 problems that I have faced with the car are: 1. the front door latches are badly lacerated and I have already injured my finger once. The parts need to be replaced. 2. the tcs display comes on and stays on forever and the gear does not move beyond the first. This is in spite of switching the tcs lever off. This is used to happen twice a day earlier. But now it is a permanent feature.
