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 Owner Comments

This is the 2nd time for the same issue (mileage 17900) -previous issue was July 2012. Driving down the interstate-car suddenly looses power down to idle only speed. Fortunately, then & today no tractor trailers ran over top of the car. Could mange to get to the side of the road and out of the way. Kia is obviously not fixing this position sensor/computer problem. Driving the car in limp mode to a garage is extremely dangerous as must get up to 25mph then use the cruise control-in traffic it is off & on.start & stop. Be forewarned you should force Kia to fix this problem before someone gets killed. I await your response. I see someone else has put in a complaint-I wonder how many others have experienced this problem and have not complained. (like my first experience).
