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.

Tucson 4WD 6-cyl

  • 67,397 miles
Airbag light on. Dealership where purchased, Hyundai inland empire, loma linda, ca, diagnosed and determined a wire was severed in loom attached to passenger seatbelt that connects to assembly under vehicle (photos available). This part has never been tampered and unaware that part existed until mechanic checked and only dealership where vehicle has been serviced. I asked for an exception to warranty as this is not a moving part. There is no replacement part and the whole assembly has to be replaced for thousands of dollars. I do not have that kind of money to fix a safety issue as part must be defective if wire snapped. No longer under 60,000 mile warranty so Hyundai will not take responsibility and denied paying for this. Now my airbags will not deploy. They have advised the loom where wire snapped must be remanufactured in Korea. I cannot believe that is the case when these vehicles are still being made. I need help.
