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.

Car purchased new in 2011. Me - 50+ female, have driven 18K miles in 30 months. Current mileage approx 18,800. Blown kumho front passenger tire at 35 mph - rim and tire replaced by dealer at my cost in Aug 2013 at 14K mileage. Jan-Feb 2014, repeated visits to dealer due to tires losing air. Feb 21, 2014, back passenger tire replaced by dealer at my cost due to bubbling and rotated to front. (Aug replacement rim and tire now on back passenger side). Dealer states tire rated for 60K miles. Dealer states all tires thoroughly examined and good to go. Cost from Aug to Feb $1000 for two tires and rims. Eight days later, have driven 50-60 miles only since visit to dealer. On Mar 1, 2014 (sat), back passenger tire flat, car towed to dealer on Mar 3 (mon). Dealer says back rim (replaced in August) needs to be replaced again but tire is fine ("??"), also need front left tire due to bubbling. Will cost another $800. Total of nearly $2000 in rims and tires in 6 months on a car with 18000 miles. Calls to Hyundai. They are "working on it" but dealer is not responding to specific questions. Mechanic at dealer blames the road. How can a rim be bent in a week but the tire is okay"??" call to kumho regarding tires. Tires are not rated for any mileage. Lie #1 from dealer - said tires rated at 60K. Currently in rental car at my cost while Hyundai and dealer play games. Seriously contemplating getting an attorney involved. I am providing personal information required by this website and expressly state I do not wish to be contacted with any offers, information, etc. Either by email or phone and do not give permission to have my information given to any third parties.

After only 18 months and 28,000 miles of leasing my car from Hyundai I could hear the front drivers side wheel was making some kind of clicking sound. After inspecting the tire, which is a kumho brand, I noticed that the inside of the tire had a long narrow thread of rubber hanging from it. I called for the car to be towed to my local Hyundai dealership (valencia Hyundai). When the maintenance department ([xxx]) told me that both front tires were very worn and need replacing I expected after such a short period of time that they would be covered by the warranty. Apparently, they are only covered by the manufacturers warranty. I called kumho tires who informed me that the warranty only covers defects and according to Hyundai there was no defect just wear and tare. The point I'm trying to make is that maybe Hyundai should not be using kumho tires in the first place as they are obviously not very good tires. I made a complaint to Hyundai and suggested that they ought to at least go splits with me on the cost of the replacement tires, although I think that was too generous of me, I think they should replace them for free. So now I'm waiting to hear back from the complaints department. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
