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.

2005 Kia Amanti Owner Comments

Amanti 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,200 miles


Bought a 2005 Kia Amanti in athens, Georgia on 02/22/2006. Test drove three different cars. When I applied the brakes the whole car would vibrate. Over the next week after I bought the car it got worse. Took it back to the dealership and they had to replace all four rotors. Was told that they bent because the car was sitting on the lot for an extended period of time. Thats a first! it seems all Amantis are having the same problem.
