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.

Since 2012 our Hyundai Sonata has problems starting after getting gas. It takes several tries to start and have to rev-up the engine or it stalls out. Once it finally gets going, which usually takes a few minutes, the gas attendants and people in line to get gas look at us as if we never get our car serviced. This is really annoying and embarrassing to my wife and I...

Every time car is filled with gas, (no matter empty or half full) car does nothing but stall out..Have to brake and push gas pedal way down to get car moving, then after driving a small distance with brake & gas on, it stays running.
