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

Jun 132011

Tiburon SE 2.0L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,273 miles


Driving along one evening and it became harder and harder to move the steering wheel. It turned out the power steering line had a leak. I had to order the line from a local hyundai dealership (it took about a week to arrive) and then to have the new power steering line installed, the mechanic had to disconnect the rack and pinion steering in order to disconnect the old line (it was seized). From the time the problem occurred to the time I got my fixed car back again, I waited about two weeks. Final cost of parts and auto shop labor was approximately $850. Since then I've had to replace front and rear struts, an alternator, a battery, lots of tires, front coil springs, and tie rod ends. Current problems include rusted out quarter panels, faded paint, and a rusted sub-frame. Getting rid of this car ASAP.
