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.

2007 Hyundai Tucson Owner Comments

problem #2

Tucson 4WD 6-cyl

After 2 hours of highway driving at 70 mph, check engine light comes on. I drive for another hour and then have the code scanned. The code reader says "torque converter solenoid". Hyundai will not pay for any of the repairs. I know there is a tech. Service bulletin for this, so I wanted to NHTSA to make note I have problems with this such that it may turn into a recall.

problem #1

  • 45,425 miles
The car was in the process of stopping for a red light, the tachometer showed and increase to about 2,000 RPM. I put the car into neutral and the engine throttled back to a normal 800 RPM. The rest of the short trip was uneventful. About an hour later on another short trip, I again came to a stop at a red light and the engine again revved up but this time to about 4,000 RPM, I could hardly stop the car with the brakes and again put it in neutral whereupon it again settled back to a normal 800 RPM. The rest of the short trip was uneventful. The second time my wife was in the car; she is afraid to drive it as she said if that happened to her she wouldn't know what to do. I will take it to my mechanic.
