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.

2007 Hyundai Tucson. Consumer writes in regards to air bag wire harness problems. The consumer stated when the air bag illuminated, the problem was diagnosed as a bad passenger seat belt tensioner. The seat belt tensioner was replaced. However, the repair shop was unable to clear the fault indication. At their suggestion, the consumer to the vehicle to the dealer as they would have the equipment to clear the fault code. The dealer found a broken wire on the wire harness connecting to the seat belt tensioner. The consumer was quoted a price of $ $2729.57 to replace the harness. The consumer repaired the broken wire and reconnected the wire harness himself, and the air bag light went out. MA 10/2 updated 10/08/15

I bought the 2007 Hyundai Tucson a couple of weeks ago. Last week the ESC off light started to come on from time to time. I noticed that there was a recall going on the Tucsons because of a faulty stop lamp switch which can cause the ESC off light to illuminate. I contacted the local Hyundai dealer but they told me my car wasn't covered under the recall. Is there anything I can do to get them to replace the stop lamp switch as part of the recall?

After driving the car and the engine is turned off it will not crank again immediately. It takes approximately 15-30 minutes for the car to cool down before starting again. In starting the car again, fuel smell is very strong and the car shakes with black smoke coming from the exhaust/tail pipe. The dealer was able to duplicate. In addition, when feet is on brakes, the transmission revel up as if the car is going to take off. This happens when applying the brakes and coming to a stop. The dealer has duplicated the cranking problem. I was told several components were being replaced only to find out that if the fuel pump, fuel pump wiring, cleaning of corrosion from the wiring harness was done, the car still would not crank after driving the car and turning it off. After calling the Consumer Affairs office several times and was told that a case manager would call, the case manager never called. The dealer requested a field engineer. After the fuel smell continue to worsen, telephone Consumer Affairs for the fourth time. This time, the first responder answering the phone laughed when I told her that I was afraid of driving the car and feared that it would catch on fire or blow up according to mechanics. The representative snickered! she told me that the field engineer determined that the wiring harness had been damaged when I supposedly pre-wired the car for an after market alarm system. He decided to void the warranty so the dealer stopped trying to figure out what is wrong with the car. I was told I had to fix the wiring harness. The problem with this conclusion is that I never had an after market alarm put on the car nor did I buy a car with an after market alarm system. I have experience the problem from January 2011 and continues to experience. I called for the CEO of Hyundai who never responded. The case is with regional who has yet to call.
