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.

Paint on the 2003 Tiburon (teal/blue now called tidal wave) improper application results in scracthers appearing very easily. Using fingernails softly against paint will scratch it. In other extreme conditions micro flecks of paint come off of hood and other parts of car. Paint is much too thin for the mildest of road conditions resulting in rapidly aging appearance and condition. It is totally unacceptable. I would suggest a clearcoat applied or repainted.
