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

The insulated piece of tubing that covers a small portion of the power steering line should be replaced with a breathable type of product. My power steering fluid is leaking and it is not due to wear and tear on the vehicle. That portion of insulation on the power steering line retains moisture, therefore it causes that portion of the power steering line to rust and the fluid leaks out. This seems to be a manufacturing defect especially when the car has only 59,200 miles on it. Every two days I put in power steering fluid until I get an answer in reference to the warranty. This line has to be replaced.
