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. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle bumper issues. The consumer stated in March 2014, the bumper fender skirt and inner fender well dropped to the ground while driving on a well maintained road. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, where they stated a plastic bag may have wrapped around the bumper, and pulled it down, but there was no defect. The consumer took the vehicle to a body shop, where they informed her the design was not very good, as plastic parts were used. The second incident happened on May 12th. As the consumer was driving, the right front end dropped again. The consumer returned to the auto body shop, where they fixed it again. Updated 09/29/14.
