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.

2005 Hyundai Tiburon Owner Comments

problem #2

2005 Hyundai tiberon. Per discussion with the investigating officer, the driver was going around a sharp corner too fast. Lost control of the vehicle (possibly because the ESC unit inputs or steering box malfunction) and started fishtailing. Vehicle then slid sideways into another vehicle (side impact). None of the 4 airbags deployed, killing the driver instantly. Accident is still being investigated.
