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 Tucson Owner Comments

Tucson 6-cyl

My vehicle was parked in my driveway when I opened the rear hatch. The hinges suddenly disintegrated, busted right off. The rear window fell out striking me. The only way it was being held up and kept from falling to the ground, was by its shocks that keep window up when opened. I see that are numerous reports on this matter from various times. Is there some kind of recall on this problem?

The hinges on the back window hatch of my 2005 Hyundai Tucson just broke. For no reason, while opening the window, the entire window popped out at me. I was not seriously injured, however you would think that a vehicle of this age would not fail like this. It took me and my husband together pushing to get it back into place and close. I can no longer us the window opening to access the back of my vehicle - until I pay for repairs. I would like to find out if there have been any other complaints of this kind on either the Santa Fe or the Tucson?
