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.

2004 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 062014

Sonata GLS 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,445 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I DID CALL HYUNDAI AND THEY SENT ME A LARGE PACKAGE TO FILL OUT AND SAID THE CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY BUT I SAID HOW DO WE KNOW IF THE AIR BAG WOULDN'T WORK SINCE BRAND NEW? NO ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION. I AM GRATEFUL MY WIFE WASN'T HURT AND HAPPY SHE WAS ALONE SINCE THE OTHER AIR BAGS MAY NOT HAVE DEPLOYED EITHER. THE COST OF AIR BAG REPLACEMENT PUT MY CAR IN THE DO NOT REPAIR CATEGORY AND TOTAL DAMAGE WAS $5800.00 INCLUDING AIR BAG. BUT THE AIR BAG WAS RIGHT OVER $3,000 AND EVEN IF MY INSURANCE WOULD HAVE COVERED IT I WOULD NOT HAVE GOT A NEW AIR BAG FROM HYUNDAI NOT KNOWING IF IT WOULD DEPLOY. NEEDLESS TO SAY MY SONATA WITH APPROX 65,443 MILES AND IN GARAGE KEPT CONDITION WILL BE TOTALED AND REST IN A SALVAGE YARD SOMEPLACE. I CAN PUT A BUMPER,GRILL AND A HOOD ON IT AND DRIVE IT FOR SEVERAL MORE YEARS BUT WILL NOT HAVE AN AIR BAG FOR THE DRIVER AND I CAN'T DO THAT AS MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER DRIVE IT ALSO PLUS THE FACT MY GRANDDAUGHTERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PROTECTED BY THE SIDE AIR BAGS WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT WORK. Hyundai HAS LOST A LIFETIME CUSTOMER BECAUSE THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYONE'S LIFE.

THAT'S ALL I GOT TO SAY ABOUT THIS.
