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 own a 2010 Hyundai Sonata, which has never been in an accident and I have owned the vehicle since new. Since July 2013, I have had 3 door handles break off in my hand. I am a single person, that does not have continuous use of the passenger side front and rear handles or the driver side rear door. At this time, I have one door handle left on my car, which is the driver side and very worried if this falls off, I will not be able to get into my vehicle. At this point, the vehicle is unsafe. If I had anyone in my vehicle and was in an accident, the rescue attendant would not be able to assist in getting people out. I have talked to the dealership service dept. And the Hyundai customer care and was told because of mileage, I am out of warranty and Hyundai will not cover the replacement of the door handles. Because this is not a normal wear and tear issue, but I believe this is a manufacture defect of the door handles and a safety issue, Hyundai should issue a recall.

I am filing a complaint regarding the door handles on Hyundai vehicles. I drive a Hyundai Sonata and have had the door handle break off three separate times in my hand. When I have taken it in to get fixed, I am told that this is a common occurrence, they replace it with the same style handle and send me on my way. My concern with this, besides that it is a known defect that is not covered by the company, is that it is a safety issue. I have a young child in a carseat in my car with me almost always. If the door handles continue to break off, there is no way for me to enter the car from the outside and she is trapped inside the car in her carseat.

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.
