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

problem #1

Oct 172011

Sonata V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,137 miles


overall the 2003 has been phenomenal considering it,s a v6 but the steering to go so early particularly the hoses and the dealer / parts store hoses are know to have faulty manufacture - the main connection up on the engine top apparently there is excess pressures going through the hose and both the dealer and parts stores know of this but they make and sell hoses with faulty hydraulic pressure connections ...... lesson learned go to an independent hydraulic hose source such as the heavy equipment shops give the mechanic your old hose and have them put a new hose chunk with the necessary fittings together for you a little expensive but worth every penny this one $110.00 for the hose but the pressure tolerance way above existing offerings and will last 10 years easy - others 4 if ya extremely lucky repairs costs through dealer 1800.00 ridiculous
