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.

2012 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 82,800 miles


Vehicle type: 2012 Hyundai Sonata SE on Thursday April 14, 2016 at approximately 6P in the evening the air bag check light was illuminated in my vehicle for no apparent reason. The following day, I took the car to the dealer, and was told to make an appointment to have the issue addressed. On sat April 23rd, I was told that the repair was $436 to replace a clock spring assembly (part # 93490-3Q120). Due to the fact the vehicle has over 60,000mi, this equipment replacement is not covered by any warranty. I was astonished to find that something of this import would ever need replacement and that such failure in the device would prevent my airbag from deploying in the event of a collision. For this reason, I believe that the warranty on any such item should be unlimited. Without this repair, I do not have a functioning airbag. I contend that the repair of equipment required by the NHTSA should be covered by the manufacturer and warranted by such for the lifetime of the vehicle, as long as the vehicle is operational.
