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.

This is my second 2012 Sonata hybrid. The first one had so many engine issues that Hyundai replaced it with another 2012 Sonata hybrid. I have taken it in 5 times.for the same issue. Around 20mph the car will not accelerate then it jerks forward. I almosy got hit on the highway because it wont accelerate. Several weeks ago the stop safely do not drive hybrid warning came on and thr car wouldnt go. Had ot towed. They found code P0717. They replaced input output speed sensors but the problem continues still. It also jerks when it changes from hybrid to gas. This car is dangerous. They cannot seem to find the problem. Mileage 51000-55000.

Sonata Hybrid 4-cyl

When accelerating from a stop, the vehicle takes excessively long time to go from 0-25 mph, so much so, that when merging into traffic it has unpredictable acceleration. At various times I would step on the gas pedal and sometimes it would have a 3-5 second delay before going forward. When it finally accelerates sometimes it has a popping sound and often the car lurches. I have brought it in 3 times for Hyundai to find the problem but each and every time they have said they were not able to find anything wrong with the car.

Sonata Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 32,000 miles
Slowly accelerating up a small hill at approximately 3 to 5 mph. Began to break at top of hill which is at the exit of a very busy road. Suddenly car began to accelerate without my foot on the gas or on cruise. I had foot on the brake when this happened. I had to break harder to avoid being hit by 4 lane traffic. Car moved about a foot after brake was applied harder.
