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.

2005 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

May 202005

Sonata 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles


I have a 2005 Hyundai Sonata, bought new. The front passenger seat moves forward and backward on acceleration and deceleration. It is more pronounced on braking. The seat slides about 4 inches forward with braking over 25 mph. I took it to ganley Hyundai on brookpark road in parma Ohio for repairs. The service manager said it was fixed, but it still slides. If the manager says it is fixed, and it still moves, to me this means it is unrepairable. Another issue with the car is the rear view mirror blocks out entire cars from view. It is much too large for the size of the windshield.
