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.

2003 Hyundai XG350 Owner Comments

XG350 6-cyl

My vehicle has been having a hesitation problem for some time now. I have taken it to several mechanics and have not found the problem after spending several thousand dollars. I took it to the local dealer (brown Hyundai) in Laredo tx and they point to the catalytic converters (3) and the oxygen sensors. I have had a mechanic remove the catalytic converts and tell me there is nothing wrong with the converters. The vehicle exhaust system reaches over 500 degrees. I have measured it with a heat gun. While I do not know what the proper temperature should be I know over 500 degrees is way to high. While I went to pick up my Hyundai at the dealer he told me they had just had 2 other vehicles XG350's with the exact problem. If you go on line and read some of the codes they refer too "band 1 and bank 2 system too lean", this is a very common problem without an exact solution. I believe the code is P0174 and P0171. Both the mechanics I have hired and the dealer have checked the list of possible problems which include: Intake air leaks oxygen sensors ignition misfiring fuel injectors fuel pressure mass air flow sensor.
