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.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #4

Sonata Hybrid

  • 10,700 miles


Anti-lock brake system is non-functional. On several occasions while in motion on the highway, I have had to apply the brakes quickly, which has repeatedly caused the wheels to lock up and the car to skid. Dealership claims there is nothing wrong, and that the brakes are acting normally.

I've years of experience with ABS systems. My current car claims to have ABS, but if I slam on the brakes, they lock. That is not ABS. I took the car in to have it looked at and the dealer claimed it met their ABS standards. The brakes don't meet my ABS standards. I have had to slam on the brakes on several occasions, sometimes going as slowly as 20 mph and the brakes locked and the car skidded.

Break pedal unusual sound: When standing still and applying pressure to brake pedal, unusual noise can be clearly heard. I believe this noise should not be present. Sound is reappearing more than once throughout all brake pedal travel from upper position to its lowest position. Sound is if some metal part was rubbing against either another metal or plastic surface.

Stopped at a intersection, brake light warning came on, car would not move. Towed to Hyundai dealer, hydraulic booster had short, hydraulic booster replaced. Wondering why the electronics do not have a dual channel operation to alleviate the possibility of being stranded in an undesirable or dangerous location.
