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 own a 2005 Hyundai Sonata gls. While driving down the freeway at 70 mph the car suddenly became hard to control, as in it started pulling extremely hard to the right. I had to drive home with the steering wheel cocked to the left in order to go straight. I brought it into the shop thinking it needed an alignment - both front tires were tilted in at the top - what I found out was that the subframe was rusted in half. It seems very shady to me that there is a recall for this exact problem for pretty much every year except 2005. This is the same model as the 2004 and it was manufactured that year as well. *also, the trim on the car, which is what makes it more expensive, is constantly coming off while I'm driving. The silver trim around the passenger window flew off on the tollway. The driver's window trim came off due to ice - it was replaced by a body shop, but later flew off on the tollway as well. The trim on all four doors is now bolted on as that kept falling off too. *also, there is significant rust right above the top of the windshield to the point that it will soon be raining in my car.
