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.

2007 Hyundai Sonata sun visor on driver's side will not stay in place. A plastic piece broke and there is no tension in the visor resulting in the visor being completely vertical and always it the line of sight. I have to hold it in place with my hand while driving resulting in only one hand on the wheel and is highly dangerous. I've read that this is a very common problem with Hyundai's and feel that the manufacturer should fix these safety problems.

On 4/17/09 at about 2pm, I was traveling in a 2007 Hyundai Sonata southbound at 70mph on I-75 in Florida between SR64 and SR70. Smooth traffic flow, no road hazards, bumps, potholes or debris. Weather 80 degrees, overcast. I had my ac on, windows closed and sunroof/sunshade closed when "boom" I heard an explosion above my head followed by the sound of wind. Startled, I immediately pulled over, got out and saw that my sunroof had literally exploded upward, with the shattered rim edges intact. Thank god I had my sunshade closed or I might have had glass fly into my eyes, blinding me and causing a catastrophic accident. I drove home and put a tarp on it because it was overcast and I was afraid of rain damage. I have used the sunroof on almost every day without incident, grinding noise, leak or concerns of any kind. I sincerely believe that this sunroof explosion was caused by a structural or mechanical defect from the manufacturer that could have lead to a serious, possibly fatal, accident. I am taking photographs and will be taking the vehicle to a Hyundai dealership for evaluation.

Driver side sunvisor mounting has become so loose that it allows the visor to continually drop down in front of my face, obscuring my view of the roadway, thereby presenting a real danger to the safe operation of the vehicle. The odds of an accident caused by the premature wear/failure of the visor retention mechanism is very real. In my opinion, this constitutes a safety defect.
