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.

While parking in front of a coffee shop as I applied the brake to stop, the right side of my right shoe was over the gas pedal causing the car to continue forward striking a cement ashtray on the sidewalk pushing it into plate glass window.

Amanti

  • 23,000 miles
I am an original owner of a 2004 Kia Amanti with only 23000miles. My car has accelerated on its own such as the Toyota recent recall. Kia headquarters claim they've never heard of this problem.meanwhile if U go to website www.ODI.NHTSA.dot.gov you will see hundreds of people complaining about the same problem with their Kia Amanti. I got the car fixed but I don't feel safe.$1137.94 later Kia kept car entire week. Kia service tech&advisor explained it was an electronic problem with the accelerator position sensor failure. What is it going to take before for someone investigates Kia Amanti? sadly I regret spending so much on high end foreign vehicle. I had to change/purchase twice front wheel new tires. Numerous times in the winter my battery goes completely dead. I 'm frustrated as Kia headquarters isn't being held responsible for gas acceleration, an issue that is a safety hazard. Please can someone at NHTSA finally take action before someone gets killed.
