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.

On Monday September 22nd around 540pm on the 10 fwy going eastbound right before towne ave. As the traffic on the freeway began to slow I came to a complete stop. About 5 seconds after stopping I noticed that the car began to roll forward. I applied more pressure to the brake pedal however the car continued to slowly roll. I then stepped on the emergency break and the car did not stop. The car slowly rolled about 8 feet before it stopped on the back of a big rig trailer bumper. I called 911 and explained that I did not want to move the car as I was not sure it would stop. The chp advised that they would send out a tow truck to get me off the freeway. I was removed from the freeway and I had aaa tow my car to the nearest Hyundai dealer in glendora ca. They called me the next day and said they ran a full test on the car and could not find anything. However they did fix the recall on my car for the rollaway risk and shift cable to the transmission. I asked them do you think this had anything to do with it. The dealer indicated no that maybe I was driving fast and the ABS took over. I told him that I had more than 8 feet between the big rig and myself when I came to a full stop and that I was not going more than 15-20 miles since traffic was slow. The dealer service agent said nothing showed up on the scanned test and they drove it and is fine.

Sonata 4-cyl

On Mar 18, 2014, at approximately 11:25pm my wife and I heard a very loud noise, ie; explosion, that we knew came from the top of our car. We pulled over and noticed that our sunroof had exploded; over half the glass was gone and strewn all over the roof and trunk area of our car. We had just pulled away from a stop light after it turned green and were accelerating up to speed. We were traveling somewhere between 30 - 40mph when the sunroof blew for no apparent reason. We took the car to the Hyundai dealership for repair the next day. The dealership couldn't determine what caused the sunroof to rupture like it did. The dealership thought we were hit by a rock, but both the wife and I refuted that idea. We stand by our claim that it blew for no apparent reason. Even if a rock did hit us, the sunroof glass should not have exploded/ruptured like it did. We feel there's a very serious defect with the glass and that this incident needs to be addressed more closely. I have pictures if you would like them.
