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 2004 Kia Amanti. The contact stated that the vehicle's air bag indicator light illuminates intermittently while driving 45 mph. The vehicle was brought to the dealer and the air bag was replaced. However, the dealer did not replace all of the screws and the air bag landed in the contacts lap.

Car-Kia sorento (no option on vehicle page for sorento) I have taken the Kia sorento now 4-5 times for the gas tank problem. The car will not allow me to pump gas freely. It keeps stopping every 30 cents or so. Quirk Kia has serviced 4 times and each time they have replaced parts from fuel filler neck to pumps to hoses to a pressure sensor, etc. I was told on 7/30/05 that the mechanic (on 3rd visit) that previously tried fixing my car broke a few things in the gas tank and there was a faulty part gasket. They said they replaced the parts. They did not give me a receipt. Now the problem continues and I feel unsafe when it has to do with gasoline not properly entering my vehicle. Why can't they fix it? my check engine light has been on 2 times because of the problem getting worse!
