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.

2013 Hyundai Veloster Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 4,000 miles


It started as some small shocks from door and steering wheel. The vehicle now shocks you from just about anywhere you stand. I did bring it to the dealer and after having for over 3 days only a oil change had been done. I asked to pick up for a appt. I had on Sunday and all three pages of what was to be looked at stated work not done.I told service advisor I needed to get car fixed before I drove across country, I asked to bring it back and he said I thought you were leaving which I am but very concerned about driving any length because it gets painful if I have to turn on lights.

Veloster 4-cyl

  • 8,450 miles
On Friday May 10 I took my Veloster to the dealer as I was considering a possible trade in. The sales manager did a full check of my car and test drove it as well in an effort to make an acceptable offer for trade. My car was in perfect condition with no damage whatsoever. After discussing all the details, I decided not to trade in my car. I left and and drove to a local theater. While driving I heard an unusual noise as if something had fallen/blown off my car. It was dark and since I didn't see anything I figured it was something on the road. Well when I got to the theater (about 5 miles away) and got out of the car, my passenger advised me that the strip on the passenger side roof that is normally present as a clip-in mechanism was missing. I can only conclude that it blew off while I was driving. I feel for the person behind me who either got hit by it or had to do some evasive maneuvering to avoid impact. This could be a very serious issue, especially at higher speeds. I don't know if anyone was injured or not, but Hyundai needs to be aware of its potential serious hazard. -the dealer wants me to pay for replacement/repair of a defective part even though I am still under my bumper to bumper warranty. I can assure you that I will not be paying to have it replaced as it is Hyundai's responsibility. With less than 10000 miles there is no excuse for this type of issue to occur.
