    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles.

    Consequence: If the seat belts are inconvenient to use, the seat occupant may not be inclined to wear the seat belts properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will install a stopper over each front seat belt D-ring guide to assist the seat belt to smoothly extend and retract. Owner notification began December 10, 2001.

  3. 1999 Hyundai Tiburon POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION NHTSA Campaign #99V178000

    • Date Announced: JULY 07, 1999
    • Vehicles Affected: 11,530

    Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. The automatic transmission pressure control solenoid valve seals do not remain sufficiently elastic, resulting in transmission fluid leakage. This leakage can result in reduced pressure application to the clutches, brake, and kickdown servo, allowing them to slip.

    Consequence: Such slippage can cause premature deterioration of the friction element surfaces and could cause the vehicle not to accelerate, or not accelerate as expected, when the driver presses the accelerator pedal.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the pressure control solenoid valve. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #99V178000 »
