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

Sonata 6-cyl

  • 257 miles


2008 Hyundai Sonata. Consumer states discontent with denial of a online coupon, unresolved thumping, vibration that occurs when the vehicle is started. In addition the turn signal flasher/clicker is too quiet. The consumer stated the thumping and vibration occurred when he would drive away after the vehicle had been sitting overnight or it had been parked for 4-6 hours. After driving 3-5 miles, the thumping would go away, but not entirely. The thumping and vibration was felt in the steering. The consumer also stated the tires that came as standard equipment performed badly during snow and ice conditions. The tires did not grip properly. The consumer believed the problems were associated with the tires, because after the tires warm up, the thumping diminished quite a bit. The tires also had flat spots. The dealer replaced the flasher, but it didn't make any difference. The consumer stated it was still too quiet.
