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.

Sonata 4-cyl

The nav radio freezes up. Restarts randomly over and over. Can still tune the radio and sound through steering wheel but cannot see anything on the nav screen. This happened a day after the car was purchased. The dealer was contacted and said that the warranty was up. Would really like to get this issue fixed, as this is why the car was purchased. For the navigation feature.

Satellite/fm/am digital radio does not function properly. Radio has been replaced and all connections checked. Satellite works fine, fm only works with strong signals around and the am does not work at all. Car dealer does not have any solution and only says that the problem should work it self out once the all digital signal are utilized. Dealer says an non-digital radio cannot be installed.
