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.

The contact owns a 2001 Hyundai XG300. The contact stated that the vehicle would pull to the right when she drove various speeds including approximately 35 mph. She noticed the failure in October 2003. The tires were checked and aligned; however, the failure continued to occur. A local mechanic stated that the front subframe was corroded. She later inquired about recall 09V124000, suspension and was told that her vehicle was not included. She also stated that in August 2007 she noticed that the SRS light was illuminated. The vehicle was inspected and it was cited that the SRS light was on because of a faulty wire which was connected to the front seat and could not be adjusted. The vehicle would have to be taken apart to confirm that the wire was faulty. She also was informed that recall 02V105000, air bags, side/window was related to her failure but did not include her VIN. In July 2009, she noticed that the fuel tank would not take gasoline. She felt as if it was because of the fuel tank assembly valve but it was not confirmed by an inspector. The vehicle rejected the fuel and caused spillage. She called the manufacturer and was advised that they could not assist her. The current mileage was 78,225. The failure mileage was approximately 24,000. Updated 02/17/10. The transmission was replaced, due to vehicle not going into drive at times. Updated 02/19/10

I have ongoing problems with my car since after purchase in 2007. Hyundai case #3479162 check engine light was going on and staying on unless the battery would die. Failed emissions said to be caused by air sensors but codes kept getting whipped out.car has been to dealer countless times! car lunges thrashing motion while at a stop or driving. The air bag light stays on at all times, the first time the lunging happened I thought I was out of gas, with the exception of the violent thrashing that occured/S. my cars control panel, headlights and interior lights dim, shut off at will. All radio & control panel lights come on and go off at any time. The radio starts changing from fm to am to cd at any given time including while the car is turned off and unattended. The tail lights, brake lights and running lights also turn on/off by themselves whether driving the car or if the car is sitting in my driveway. I have to get my car jumped every time I go to start it.it wasn't until earlier this year that a neighbor came to let me know that I left my lights on in the middle of the night. I knew nobody had been in my car because I was recovering from a major surgery and my car keys are always with me. This incident with the neighbor shed light on part of the problem. Now I know why my battery is constantly dead. I just don't know why the car is turning on it's electrical components. The ongoing problem with the battery drain has caused the codes for the car to keep being erased so there is no way to diagnose cause for the check engine /air bag light coming on. It's frightening that the lights go on or off, day or night, without cause. This is very dangerous while night driving! the stalling out while driving causes complete loss of the steering/brakescontrols and all power. I am terrified of hwy driving now! I could cause an accident that may kill me or someone else!the thrashing and lunging of the car scares me. The electrical is going on at least 8X day/night. This car is dangerous!

I have a Hyundai 2001 XG300. Since my purchase in 2001 up until present at various and unpredictable times, when I accelerate the transmission stutters/ shudders causing a noticeable delay in acceleration. This condition is at all speeds but notable between 35-43 mph 55-65 mph. When I'm trying to pass another vehicle or if I would accelerate to move out-of another vehicles way I would be bogged down with a stutter/shudder from the transmission which may cause an unsafe condition. I've been to the dealership and they have been very helpful and up-dated the transmission computer but the problem did not get any better or worse. It appears Hyundai is aware of the problem because they have a service bulletin on the problem. My concern is it may be a safety problem.

My Hyundai XG300 will not move and than plunges forward out of my control, does this the initial drive of the day anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes of driving. Sometimes it just does it out of the blue, when stopped at a stop light. I spoke with one of your representatives today. I just got back from the store - when started my car, put it in drive and I almost hit the car in front of me, my car would not move and than it plunged out and I hit the brakes in time! this was way too close for comfort, and my body is still upset M as I type! we have a great driving record, great insurance rates and we are not antisipating a change, but if this problem is not corrected I could be looking at an accident or something worse! do you advise we stop driving until the problem is corrected" you site has listed recalls for XG300, same defect, manufactured between a certain date, of which mine was manufactured on 1/9/2001. The dealer told me he found nothing wrong, I wish I would have viewed your site before I saw the dealer, maybe me knowing would have helped him locate the problem. What should I do, take it back to the dealer"
