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.

The ac condenser froze up therefore I could not start vehicle. It was snowing and freezing and I was stranded for 2 hours. The ac should not be going bad on a 2010 vehicle. I read many reports on this particular problem in the Kia Fortes all years. Well someone could get hurt when there vehicle stops running in the middle of a busy highway!!! this is a problem!!! mechanic told me I could of been driving fast and this could of happened!! someone is going to get hurt!!
