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.

Car has stalled while driving. Sometimes it will not go into gear. Other times it only goes into first gear. Had to move it to neutral then back to drive to get it to work. Other times, had to turn it off completely and back on to get it to work. This problem nearly got me in an accident when it happened while entering a highway. Also, sometimes in first gear the car will "chugg". it will struggle to accelerate and have a jerking/chugging feel. After a couple visits to Hyundai, they have failed to figure out the problem.
