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 seat belt warning chime is inaudible to me. This is a safety issue as the volume is so low. I do not have this issue with my second car (Ford) nor any of the other cars I have ever owned (over 5) over the years since chimes were installed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician did not offer any assistance claiming they are unable to alter the design of the vehicle. I contacted the manufacturer and was told to contact a different dealer (which I did). The two other dealer service departments said the same thing and were unable not offer any assistance and stated that even though the volume is admittedly low, the vehicle was operating as designed. The vehicle was not repaired.

I noticed that my blinkers were working but I could not hear them and my seat belt did the same. I went to the morgan Hyundai dealership. They found that the vehicle was not making chime sounds caused by insufficient volume coming from chime in BCM.they ordered the module to correct and replaced it a few days later. When I left the dealership I could not tell any difference in the chime sound. So I thought it might be my hearing and scheduled an apointment with and ear doctor. I explained to him what was happening. He tested me and said that I did have some difficulty in hearing high pitch sounds but that it was not bad enough to have hearing aids. He went out to my car and listened to the car chime and said that he had good hearing for his age and he was also having diffficulty hearing it. So I left his office and went back to the dealership. I was met by a very young lady and she said that she could hear it but it was not very loud. She then got an elderly man that worked there to listed and he had the same problem as I did. Then we got a middle age woman sales person to listen and she had difficulty also. Then they got the keys for four 2014 Sonatas and tried them all of them failed the test. So as a last resort we got the keys on a 2015 Sonata and we could hear it fine. They said that they would contact Hyundai to see if this is something that will be recalled or if they have had any other complaints. It concerns me because I am use to hearing the chime when I put my keys in my car and if fixed may cause me from having an accident with out my seat belt on. Please let me know if yall are having this problem anywhere else. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Sonata 4-cyl

My husband and I purchased a 2014 Hyundai Sonata on May 31st. On June 15th, I was sitting in a parking lot waiting on my husband, and I reached into the back seat to hand my one year old a toy. When I reached back, my seat belt snapped and broke from the connecting point on the floor board. My husband took it on to Hyundai and they have stated they are unsure as to why it snapped. My husband went back to get the vehicle and the service tech stated that it still wasn't fixed. He stated that when it was initially fixed and someone sat in the seat and turned it snapped again. Our vehicle is still in the shop waiting to be fixed.
