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.

On two occasions I have smelled gas when starting the vehicle. The date above is the second time. The first was after the car had been parked for 3-4 days after a snow storm in late 2013. The brakes vibrate when stopping on a rough surface. Kia Consumer Affairs attributes this to the design of the anti-lock system and apparently does not consider it a problem. On one occasion - again during a period of cold weather in late 2013 - the gears ground when turning at maximum rotation to parallel park the car in a tight spot, a common occurrence in the urban area where I live. Unlike the braking and gas-leak problem, this only happened once. Due to an issue with possible odometer tampering I have not taken the car to a dealer to address the other problems for fear they will try to mask evidence other than the scratch on the driver door.
