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.

2013 Hyundai Sonata Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 262012

Sonata 4-cyl

  • 300 miles


This complaint on a brand new 2013 Sonata, is about severe interior windshield distraction caused by the reflection of the interior dash onto the front, drivers windshield. The reflection of the interior on the windshield is so severe that it impairs safe driving. During daylight driving, everything that is located on the top of the interior dashboard vividly reflects onto the interior windshield. Design effects, speakers, steering wheel and even the drivers hands with fingernails on the windshield. Evening driving the reflection is also extremely impaired via distraction, for example the odometer reflects above the interior drivers window, above the mirror and its in full color! on a test drive, after my complaint, the dealer acknowledged this problem and suggested that it maybe from cleaning fluid used during the detailing process and had the car re-detailed, however this did not rectify the problem. I have directly notified Hyundai but have not heard back from them. I believe this a safety hazard and there is a dangerous flaw in the construction of the glass in this car.
