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.

2012 Hyundai Tucson Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 212012

Tucson 4-cyl

  • 7,650 miles


The lights above our rear license plate keep falling out of the socket due to the clips breaking. I have been bringing the car into our local Hyundai dealer and they have been very good at replacing the item. The car was purchased in August of 2011 and has been back to the dealer 5 times to replace the part.
