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.

  • miles


The contact owns a 2002 Hyundai Sonata. When fueling the vehicle, gasoline regurgitates from the fuel tank. Also the check engine warning light was illuminated on the instrument control panel. Sometimes the vehicle will hesitate when attempting to accelerate, as if there was no fuel available. The dealer was notified, and a technician concluded that she would have to pay $900 to repair the vehicle. No repairs were made.. the failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 82878.
