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 an 06 Hyundai Sonata and was hearing a growling noise which became louder with increased speed. After going to the dealer on three separate occasions with the hope of identifying the problem, I was informed that I needed to replace the two front wheel bearings (to a tune of $1100). I am shocked by this considering this is a farely new vehicle. I read complaint and defect reports on the NHTSA website which sited frame corrosion issues in models up to 2002. My concern is that this is the same type of issue but my car is not acknowledged or included because it is a 2006 model. I know that Hyundai claims to have improved the engineering of their newer models; however, it just seems ironic that I am needing to replace the wheel bearing (which is included in the frame) at such an early age in the life of the vehicle. There has been no accidents or injuries as of this date, but I was informed that if I didn't replace these bearings that I am in jeopardy of the wheels falling off...which could be detrimental and very dangerous.
