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.

2013 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 062012

Sonata 4-cyl

  • 8 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Hyundai Sonata. The contact stated that the front driver and passenger side seat belt buckles were too low to reach. The contact stated that she had to reach down below the center console to reach the buckle, making it harder to set or release the seat belt. The contact asked the manufacturer for an extension to the buckle and was told that there was not an extender available. The contact also stated that the passenger side seat could not be raised once it was reclined, causing the passenger to sit with their face directly in front of the air bag compartment. The manufacturer was contacted and advised the contact that the vehicle was operating as designed. The failure mileage was 8 and the current mileage was 2,712.
