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 dashboard on the passenger side has two large cracks in it. It is very unsightly and should not have occurred. The cracks are becoming larger with time.

The "chrome" plating is peeling off of the interior driver side door handle used to open the door. The peeled plating has sharp edge and I cut my finger on it. I certainly hope this will be covered under the 5 yr bumper to bumper warranty.

I believe that the Hyundai Sonata 2009 a has a paint defect problem. I now have 12 paint chips on the hood which I believe are the result of paint flaking off. I do not recall once hearing a rock hit the hood and yet I have 12 chips and now one similar chip near the trunk. There are no dents that would indicate rocks or other objects hitting the hood. I took the car to the dealer and spoke to the manager who told me that they were a result of normal wear. I do not agree and a quick look through the internet indicates that I am not the only one with the problem.
