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.

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Sonata. When someone who 125 pounds was seated in the front passenger seat, the air bag sensor would not register that the seat was occupied. The air bags would not deploy in the event of a crash. The dealer and manufacturer stated that nothing could be done. The current mileage is 22,000 and failure mileage was 1,000. Updated 05/13/08. An exhaust shield had to be ordered due to a rattle coming from the front end of the vehicle. The truck did not open from the switch on the drivers side. The dealer replaced the wiring harness.

Airbag light stays on dimly when passenger(over 120lbs) is seated. This happens at will not all the time. We can make it turn off by stopping the vehicle and getting out of the car and reentering. We are concerned that the airbag will be inoperative if the indicator is lit. We called the dealer and have are not reassured that this isn't a real problem. Scheduled again for a dealer check.

The "passenger front air bag" light does not turn off when my wife, who weighs 123lbs, rides in front passenger side. This means that the front air bags are not activated. Went to dealer for service & was informed that this was within factory specifications. Spoke to Hyundai hq & was informed that specifications should be 80lbs. We have an initial appointment for 9/18 to meet with a company service rep, which we can not meet (we will be up North visiting G'kids) advised to make appointment after our return late September, which appointment would be in October. In the mean time I guess we are to drive extra carefully. If this happened to us there must be many more out there. This is potentially a very dangerous situation & no one from the company or dealer seems to be concerned, when I want this taken care of immediately.
