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.

I have had two other door handles serviced prior to this one. The drivers door is the one broken this time. The other two were the back door handles. This has all been within the last year and a half. This is ridiculous. I could have understood one. But three! the dealership here in St augustine, Florida told me that since it was out of warranty, no recalls and it had been a rental car through the enterprise Corp. Also, I had not brought the vehicle in to be serviced at a Hyundai dealership... that I was going to be responsible. I have read the other complaints. This needs to be addressed. I had a car fax report done at the time I purchased the vehicle used. We only saw a few minor services. There was nothing on the car fax report to indicate a rental car or abusive actions of those leasing or renting the vehicle. He says people can be rough on door handles. I said I have owned several used cars and trucks. I have never had the door handles come off even after 12-14 years of driving them. I think they should fix there vehicles due to this problem.
