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.

I purchased a 2005 Hyundai Sonata new on 2/18/05 and the dealer, parr Hyundai in bremerton installed a plastic hood deflector. In the spring of 2007, I reported that the deflector was vibrating and the dealer checked it out. Said nothing was wrong. In July 2007, while driving on highway I 5 from olympia to Tacoma, wa., the deflector suddenly flew off. I was going about 65 miles per hour. It was dark and I did not see where it went. Luckily, it did not hit anyone. Had that happened, it would have caused serious damage to any vehicle following or perhaps killed someone. I reported it to the dealer, but they claimed a rock hit my car. I do not believe this is true. The vibrations were getting worse and I had decided to return to the dealer and have the deflector removed. I waited too long, however, and the deflector flew off. The defector part number is 00239-F2000. My concern is not financial, since my loss was only $66.13. What does concern me is that future failures of the deflectors could cause great bodily harm and property damage. The auto dealer does not appear to be concerned.
