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.

The vehicle was in motion on a city street. We were traveling approximately 25 miles an hour through a green light when another vehicle ran the red light and hit us at approximately 45+ miles an hour. The front of the vehicle was significantly damaged and the drivers and passenger side airbag were deployed. During this time, the drivers and passengers seat belt locked as intended. The passenger seatbelt failed at the point where the lap restraint attaches to the car running board and will not re-attach to the vehicle after the accident. The passenger that was wearing the failed seat belt during the accident was 110lbs while the driver was 270lbs. The driver's seatbelt functioned as intended while the passengers detached.

Was recently in a car accident on 7/15/15 driving my Hyundai. I was on the freeway at a complete stop in the exit lane. The other driver was going freeway speed (60/65) and I was rear ended, pushed into the car in front of me, my car spun and I was hit again on the drivers side and through all this, none of my airbags went off. I am now recovering from hitting my head on the steering wheel, back and neck problems.,safety was one of the main reasons we bought the car. Updated 09/14/15

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.
