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.

Sonata Hybrid

  • 44,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Two and a half years ago I leased a Sonata hybrid from broadway automotive in green bay, Wisconsin. I leased the car to include 18,000 miles per year for a total of 3 years, I.e. 54,000 total miles. I was never told by the sales person or the sales manager that the tires on the car were not meant for Wisconsin winters or that they only had a 30,000 mile life or that they were meant for the California climate. This car handles terribly in the winter months, slipping with little traction whenever there is snow on the roads. I was recently told I have to replace the tires before the end of my lease. Being leased a vehicle by a dealership that knew that the tires on it were inferior for the amount of miles I was going to be putting on the vehicle is just plain dishonest and in this case dangerous. The tires put on a vehicle should match the climate the car is sold in. In addition, the tires of a leased vehicle should equal or exceed the lease mileage.
