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

problem #1

Apr 262009


  • 53,401 miles


1/6/09 while driving the tuscon began to feel hesitant with slow acceleration and stalled while I was turning across traffic and malfunction light came on. Tow was required to the dealer where the tps sensor assembly was replaced. Mileage was 50209. I purchased my tuscon new in 9/2005 and since 12/05 I had the car in the dealer for malfunction light six times. On 4/26/2009 while traveling on the NJ turnpike the tuscan began to operate in the same manner as in 1/09, and thankfully, I was able to pull over to the shoulder before the tuscon stalled and caused a major accident. I was towed to a hotel, and the next day towed again to a NJ dealer where the sensor assy-air flow and sensor assy oxygen LH were replaced. Mileage 53401. I drove 150 miles to home, and the malfunction light came on again. I took the car to my regular dealer said the code was found for cylinder # 5 misfire, E ngire not misfiring at this time. I contacted the Hyundai consumer assistance center and reported all of the above to them (three calls were made) I was told I would hear back from them last night, but have not. I travel on high speed/traffic roadways often and now I am concerned for the safety of my passengers, drivers/passengers in other cars and my own. I am I to know if the car is going to stall again, and if I am aware of a change in it's operation how I can feel safe not knowing if I will be able to pull to the shoulder before this happens.
