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.

The door handle on the outer passenger side broke loose. Now the door cannot be open from outside. I find so many complains on the website for the similar problems.

problem #1

Mar 122012

Sonata 4-cyl

  • 84,586 miles
I have had three door handles break off of this car. The first was 3/12/2012; the second 3/26/2012; and the third was 9/4/2012. The break was the same on the last two cause me not to access entry. The handle has a defect at a mold point that snaps off leaving the handle in the hand of the owner completely detached. The dealer and Corp offices refuse to assist claiming it is out of warranty.
