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

Exiting freeway, decreasing speed, when it felt as though a tire had gone flat. Shimmy and sudden lose of power followed. Steering became difficult. Car had no power, increasing gas only revved engine, but would not move vehicle at all. Was able to roll to the end of the freeway off-ramp and pull near shoulder. Engine continued to run, but sounded like a cement mixer full of large rocks. Once transmission was placed in neutral, it would not shift into any other gear. Also refused to shift into park. Vehicle was flat-bedded to dealer. Mechanics determined the right trans-axle had separated from the wheel with spindle damage. Initially it was thought that the transmission was damaged, but that may not be the case.
