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.

2008 Kia Amanti. Consumer writes in regards to brake pads issue and consumer requests explanation of who determines vehicle model year. The consumer stated on October 12, 2013, he had the brake pads replaced. The mechanic ordered 2008 pads and found they did not fit. He checked the information on the decal affixed to the frame of the vehicle, the owner's manual, warranty and consumer's information manuals and all of them showed the vehicle to be a 2007 model built in Korea in May 2007. The mechanic then exchanged the pads for 2007 and installed them without a problem. The manufacturer informed the consumer, that many vehicles, were build in previous years. Updated 01/22/14
