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 tire pressure monitoring system has shown a failure for almost 2 years. I have taken it the dealer several times and they would re-teach the system and the TPMS light returns about a week later. The dealer then said I had 2 faulty tire pressure sensors. I had all 4 tire pressure sensors replaced at a non-dealer (they assured me they could make the new sensors communicate with the car) location and the TPMS light came back on about a week later. I took it to the dealer and they did a re-teach and again within a week the TPMS light was back on. This safety system, designed to provide early warning of tire losing air pressure, is not very robust and is very manufacturer dependent for maintenance and repair. At this point the system is inoperable and has been for 2 years. I feel sure the dealer will say they need to put Hyundai parts in the vehicle to make the system operable. The cost for that service is twice what third parties charge. On a limited income that premium is not practical. These universally required safety systems need to be more generic as to make them easier to maintain and repair. It is unknown to me if Hyundai is having issues with this system on other cars.

TPMS sensor light came on after car had flat. Took it to les schwab 7 times and they kept checking for a flat. Sometimes something in the tire, sometimes not. Finally took it to a dealer. They reset the sensor but about a week later it came back on. Then I took it back and they replaced the sensor. Haven't had any problems since then. It seemed to be related to plugging my car charger in. I didn't have any problems thought until I had the first flat.
