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.

2014 Kia Cadenza Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 192015

Cadenza 6-cyl

  • 4,100 miles


I purchased a Kia Cadenza in Sept. 2014. One of the reasons that I selected this vehicle was the safety record of the vehicle. This Kia Cadenza came with dual front and rear seat-mounted side airbags. On Jan. 19th, 2015 I was broad sided while driving through an intersection. My Kia was hit with great force at the drivers side rear door. The impact sent my car into a circular spin. My Kia had a hole in the passenger rear door where the rear seat was exposed. The impact was tremendous and no air bag deployed. No front, rear or side curtain. The car has been declared a total loss. I talked to the Kia corporation about the incident and asked why no air bag went off. That was a week after the accident and I am still waiting on that phone call. These incidents should not be ignored. The sensor system detecting impact and force of impact totally failed...updated 02/24/15
