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

Sonata 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Check engine light continues to come on. We have been told that Hyundai is having a large problem with O2 sensors, especially in warm climates. Dealer worked on the problem once already, but the problem seems to have returned. The car is currently at the dealership being worked on. The service person said there have been so many problems he is suprised they have not had a recall just for the O2 sensor.
