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.

2003 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

I have been buying Hyundais for about 12 yrs. I have a Tucson,Elantra, Sonata. I will never purchase another Hyundai again. The way they handled my door handles. was downright criminal. I cut my hands 3 times. my grandchildren also, I have to put tape on the handles. I know that there are quite a few complaints on this problem. so its not a isolated problem. My anger is that Hyundai knows about it and does nothing. I was told by a Hyundai dealership where I purchased the car that I was too late for the recall, Now I am really pissed off. I never received any notice of recall. I will not let this slide. I guess Hundai is getting to big to bother about this. I am doing everything in my power to put the word out. I am in Sales, I used to rave about Hyundai to everyone of my customers. Now I tell them the opposite, Its a shame. for lack of a minor repair they let this happen. I know I am only a drop in the bucket, but drops add up. Rocco LoCascio
