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

Dec 172007

Sonata 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


On December 17, 2007 at approx 5:30pm my daughter was driving West on osuna at intersection of seaguill, driving the speed limit of 35 mph, 35 being the posted speed limit. As she proceeded through the intersection on a green light, a late model Ford Ranger tried to go through the intersection crossing her path. As she advanced through the intersection she struck the Ford Ranger broad side. Fortunately for my daughter she had her seat belt on, because the 2005 Hyundai Sonata's air bags did not deploy. There was no reason for the Hyundai 's air bags not deploying because the impact was straight ahead hit, unless the Hyundai 's air bag were defective. My daughter was not hurt bad, although she has been having neck & back pain and is under a doctor's supervision. I have written to Hyundai., to this date they have been very unresponsive. This is a safety issue that needs to be investigated. There could be a defect in Hyundai's air bag deployment system. Next time they might not be so lucky. The accident happened in the city limits of albuquerque nm.
