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.

problem #1

  • 40,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. The rear deck stop light in the back was inoperative. The failure to notify other drivers of intentions increased the risk for a vehicle crash. A technician concluded that because the manufacturer did not design an access port, they would have to remove the entire rear deck in order to replace the light bulb. He was in the process of having the vehicle repaired. The current and failure mileages were 40,000.
