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.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 192012

The lower control arm rusted and broke allowing the wheel to break lose and tilt in at the bottom. Had this happened at highway speeds the results likely would have been loss of control and crash. It's a defect Hyundai is aware of but failed to notify all owners. And Hyundai is shorting the recall to certain states blaming the issue on road salt corrosion. While in fact it is a huge problem that Hyundai is ignoring and leaving their consumers in harms way. There has to be many Hyundai vehicle owners driving today in cars that are ticking time bombs. People will be hurt or killed if action is not taken very soon. All vehicles effected by this same manufacturing flaw are very dangerous to operate.
