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.

Amanti 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1 miles
Clear coat on my Kia Amanti is peeling off. This clear coat problem first started on my front bumper and after a long inspection of the entire car my clear coat is coming off of nearly 200 little different spots. I have written complaints to Kia America and have submitted complaints online and I have never, never heard anything back. I took my Kia Amanti to the local dealership and their explanation was it was bird poop. I seriously doubt and Kia can not prove that what is happening to my vehicle is the result of bird poop. I tried to show the manager at my local Kia dealership the exact same problem with the brand new 2006 Kia Amantis that have no miles on them and his reply was, I am sure that all happened when they were ship here but he never would let me show him.
