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.

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.

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.

My 2007 Hyundai Tucson keeps stalling after being on the highway. When the vehicle comes to a stop the engine stalls out. I have had the vehicle back to the dealer in wich the changed the crank shaft sensor, that was 5 days ago, today the vehicle stalled again. As I was told by the dealer, if they can not get the vehicle to stall then they can not tell me whats going on. Reading on line it appears this is a huge issue!!

The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Tucson. The contact stated that on April 21, 2010 when starting the vehicle, she heard a noise and noticed that the crankshaft pulley had fractured. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer where the part needed to make the repairs was unavailable. The dealer was unable to provide a time frame for when the part would be available. The vehicle had not been repaired when the complaint was filed. The current and failure mileages were 27,508.
