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.

The contact owns a 2006 Hyundai Tucson. While driving in reverse, an abnormal noise emitted from the rear of the vehicle. There was a vibration from the vehicle and the contact noticed that the wheels were leaning sideways. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the wheel cradle was rusted and fractured and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 130,000.

I was driving home from work Friday afternoon June 28th and shortly after I turned onto a small road to go home I heard a very loud noise coming from the rear of my vehicle. I was extremely scared to drive it the rest of the way home, but managed to make it home very slowly. The next day I took it to my local dealership and they had no clue what would be making this loud rattling/banging noise in the rear of my SUV. When they lifted my vehicle here the evap canister bracket rusted and snapped off, which made the evap canister itself bounce off of the drive shaft making the noise that came from the rear of my vehicle. They showed me the underside of my vehicle and where all this was taking place, but while looking at the underside it made me concerned about all of the other rust areas underneath my car. Thinking about it now, my four wheel drive has disengaged this past winter and it makes me think if it possibly has rusted apart, I will get the mechanics to inspect that further for me, I do need to get that fixed before this coming winter arrives. I know my car is a 2006, but should pieces of my vehicle be rusting off already" should I be concerned about the rest of the rust damage underneath my car"

When turning right on a raining day, loss of power - no steering or brakes. 2006 tuscon would run radio would be on - battery light and brake lights on - 10 seconds after managing to get out of traffics way - car would move. Hyundai foxed the car by replacing sensors and some other work resulting in over a $1000. Prior major service was serpentine belt and chain replacement on service recommendations - had no issues before the chain was replaced. Ever since - the transmission had to reset for hesitation between 20 and 40 mph and the additional sensor work. Hyundai would not give me any warranty work as my 6 years had just expired. I am taking the car back in tomorrow for the same issue. While driving today in a sudden down pour - the first one since I had the car fixed that I have had to drive in and the incident occurred again except this time I was driving and not turning. Water seemed to get under the engine and something is getting wet. I requested a rental car and I am leaving for vacation on Saturday to the shore. If its not fixed this time - I may have to consider a new car and I just paid it off.
