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.

Tiburon 4-cyl

  • 140,000 miles
My 2004 Hyundai Tiburon suffers from a long list of electrical problems. Both power window motors have stopped working, my power trunk latch is defective, the interior light switch doesn't work, and now the turn signal relay that is part of the body control module has caused intermittent problems with my left turn signal. Sometimes it stays on even after turning off the car. I'm worried I may be rear-ended because although my signal is on, it sometimes does not flash properly due to the faulty BCM. Research indicates these are very common issues with Hyundai vehicles, and very expensive to repair. The BCM is about $700 alone. The window motors are about $300 each. It is ridiculous to pay $700 for a signal light. Hyundai should be held accountable for shoddy engineering!
