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 gas gauge shows 1/4 tank, but, I try to put gas in it & it keeps shutting off like it's full. I have had it to Kia 2 times & have to go back again tomorrow. They have ordered parts, this is the 3rd time and have charged $300.00 each time for parts & labor. It seems to me there is a blockage in the fuel tank line going into the tank, but, they think it is something else. Does anyone have any Good suggestions on how to fix it?
