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.

The contact owns a 2001 Hyundai XG300. The contact started the ignition and the air bag warning indicator illuminated continuously on the instrument panel until the engine was turned off. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer three separate times and each time the air bag computer module was reset. The malfunction persisted after the repairs were performed. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The failure mileage was less than 10,000.

1. have had brakes replaced and rotors recalibrated twice and still have vibration upon braking. Dealership says I'm not braking properly and causing brakes to overheat, which causing rotors to warp. I've been braking the same way for 35 years and never had this problem. 2. air conditioner still does not cool properly and has been in shop several times. Dealership says there is a leak in the A/C coolant, but they cannot find it. 3. car continually stutters at high speeds, dealership has replaced numerous parts, but problem persists. 4. engine began making clacking noise about 2 months ago. Dealership said bad gas was cause, but high-grade gasoline has not fixed problem. Dealership said I needed a tune-up, but that did not fix problem. Dealership says they cannot hear noise, but noise is clearly audible when accelerated and climbing hills (2-4 rpms). Dealership still says they don't hear a problem and cannot find anything wrong. This is of major concern to me, as I'm afraid the engine will blow up while on a major highway. 5. airbag light came on about a month ago, and won't go off, although nothing is wrong is airbags. 6. radio has a short that causes radio to go on and off intermittently. If a cd is put in the cd player and left there while radio is in use, the radio works fine. 7. this car has been in the shop so many times since it was purchased in December of 2001, I can't fit the repair and workorder sheets in the glove compartment any more, and the service technicians know me by name and sight.

Traveling at 45 to 55 mph, engine stalled and check engine light came on. It led to lost of power and acceleration on the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times, because the engine light continued to illuminate. The consumer stated the air bag light illuminated, there was a cracking sound under the vehicle, there was a wind noise and a vibration coming from the vehicle. The injectors, gaskets, ignition sensor and throttle body were replaced.
