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.

2008 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

Refusal of Hyundai to review levels of rear crossmember corrosion on vehicles operated in the salt belt states because owner registered it in city/state adjoining this recall. After further reviewing the survey results, Hyundai has decided to conduct a safety recall in affected salt belt states on 2006-2010 Sonata vehicles. I have notified my local Hyundai service center about this recall. Their reply was since I live in the same city but on the wrong side of the state line (Kansas City, ks not Kansas City, mo) my vehicle is not covered and they will not review my vehicle for free nor will they replace the corroded crossmember for free since my state does not belong to this recall although my driving primarily takes place in this affected and included state.
