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

Jun 262005

Sonata 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • miles


The contact owns a 2005 Hyundai Sonata. The passenger side front suspension failed while driving. The air bag deployed before impact. The contact did not know exactly what part failed because he did not have the vehicle right now because it was at the repair shop. The tie rod end was bent. While driving at about 10-15 mph heard like a crack, and then the air bags deployed, and vehicle hit a parked car. The road conditions were normal on pavement. There was no impact damage to the passenger side wheel or hub cap. The failure occurred at normal driving.
