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

problem #1

Mar 012006

Amanti 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles


Dealer replaced, the knuckle, control arm, and rack in pinion, every 15,000 to 20,000 miles the same sound comes back. The sound is back again, and getting louder and louder, sounds like the front end is coming apart. Still have problems. Kia refused to buy car back.
