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.

The airbag light came on and stayed on. Seatbelts and airbags will not properly work or work at all when this light is on. Why shouldn't the 2004 model be included in the safety recall since all other Tiburon years except for 2004 were recalled?

Tiburon 4-cyl

Air bag light came on intermittently several times before remaining on; seatbelt and buckle on driver's side replaced. Eight months later the same process occurred on the passenger side of the car.

This make and model has defective seatbelt sensors. These seatbelt sensors are wired into the airbag system and in the event of a seatbelt sensor shorting out, the air bag light comes on and the car's air bags are disabled. This is a very serious safety issue.
