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.

2001 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 232004

Tiburon 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • miles


Everytime I use my emergency brake it freezes. I had it towed into the local dealership & they informed me that the problem wasn't happening while in their possession. So, I left my car at the dealership and was told that a regional manager would have to approve my repair because they didn't know what exactly was causing my problem. I picked up my car 5 days later with no repairs being made and the problem still existing. My last conversation with the service manager, I was told that the regional manager still has yet to respond to my problem. So now I am stuck with a manual transmission car that I cannot use the emergency break for when I need it because of the winter weather.
