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.

  • 35,000 miles


At steady 40-mph on level road, a sudden downshift from 4th to 2nd with first effect -- felt like sudden braking and then very fast acceleration as RPM's went from 1500 in 4th to 6000 in 2nd before hitting accelerator pedal stopped the process to return to 4th and normal operations did this several times, very intermittent, starting at, roughly 35,000-miles on odometer and in late 2008 into 2009.

Tiburon 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles
I have a 2006 Tiburon and have already had to have it in the shop four times. For the sunroof, which still does not work right and the transmission. Now it is starting to be sluggish again. I don't trash my car or hot rod it either. The motor in the sunroof has been replaced. The transmission has just been reprogrammed each time so who knows what will be done this time.
