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

Oct 202006

Sonata 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I have had numerous complaints that I have filed with this vehicle. The latest complaint I have is with the drivers side upper control arm. My son could have been killed when this broke. I have talked to several garages including the dealership and no one has ever replaced an upper control arm except on a vehicle that is very old and then very seldom. My son was turning a corner when the drivers side wheel fell sideways. Upon looking at the problem we discovered that the upper control arm broke. This should have definitely should have not happened on a 2002 vehicle.
