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.

A panel covering the panoramic sunroof mechanism detached on the I90 while travelling at 70mph. The panel was not found. The detachment was audible heard as the panel swung around and struck the car. Fortunately there was no=one traveling behind me at the time.

We were going through a green traffic light, we were about the 6th car through the light when vehicle coming out of nowhere ran the red light from the cross street at about 55mph, did not try to stop, we slowed to almost a stop and swerved to avoid the person. She did not try to stop and T-boned us in the drivers wheel and door, but the airbags did not activate, even with this high speed collision. This is the second accident of this kind where they did not activate. The first was in January and we were rear ended at a high speed while stopped at a traffic light.

I bought a new car. 3 1/2 months later, I was rear-ended. I took car to dealership to get tailgate and pan and bumper repaired. When we picked up vehicle, strong toxic fumes from repair were so strong that we could not drive car. Instant headache, upper respiratory aggravation, sore throat, burning eyes. Car has been to repair shop numerous times and months later still causes illness in family. At one time that I drove car I almost lost consciousness. I have informed Hyundai dealership several times. I informed Hyundai corporation. Problem persists consistently for 8-9 months and after numerous trips to dealership. The dog foams and vomits before car starts moving.
