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.

2001 Hyundai XG300 Owner Comments

problem #1

For the last six months, usually, just when I am trying to pull out into an intersection our 2001 Hyundai XG300 acts like it is possessed. The tactometer bounces up and down really fast and the car surges and wants to stall all at once and I bounce across the intersection. I am wondering if it is the drive train recall for the pcm (powertrain control module) that was installed improperly on the circuit board). After six months and $2000.00 later of in and out of an independent auto repair shop, we have had the alternator replaced, replaced a battery, and replaced the throttle body, and still we are having the same problem. If it is the power control module I believe it is a recall and it only costs $12.00 to fix it.
