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.

This spontaneous acceleration issue is all over the internet for this make/model, yet Huyandai has denied all responsibility, even though they KNEW about this defect! I stopped printing at 13 cases. My son had a terrifying experience when he was at a complete stop and the car jolted forward with high rpms and went under the neighbors truck. I would like to speak to anyone with the same issue... thank you!

stopped in traffic foot on brake engine accelerates

I just got this car about a week prior from a trusted family member who has maintained the car well. I was stopped in traffic with my foot on the brake, maybe 10 feet from car in front of me. It took me a minute to realize what was happening and that the sound I was hearing was the engine starting to race on its own. Even though I stomped on the brake with all my strength the car was propelled forward into the truck in front of me. I turned off the engine but it did not respond immediately. The car would not start again for a few minutes. It was scarey and sounded like the same issue Toyota owners had on their cars. I was glad I was not stopped at a busy intersection or a school crossing! The damage to my car was quite minor luckily so even though the highway patrol appeared on the scene no report was taken.
