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.

Hi my name is [xxx]I have 2014 Kia Optima LX. I have the car since it had 2 miles and now has 14700. What is ridiculous is the struts make clunking noise over speed bumps. The car changes lane by its self. You can hold the steering wheel center and the car goes to the left. Took it to the dealer and they said it's normal. Lies all lies. Please tell me how my struts have a small leak but not enough to do anything about it I thought it was a new car. It seems like the car was made poorly and rushed. I also feel as if Kia is lying about gas mileage again. The steering feels terrible when you are on the highway. They are a sad excuse for a car company and am completely disappointed with them. The refuse to help to acknowledge that there is an issue with the Optima steering I have a family member with a 2013 Kia Optima LX with the same steering issue. So tell me how do they have the same steering issue if the 2014 was redesigned. The car seems like it leaks air into the cabin they say other wise. I'm not a happy customer and won't be till they put a recall for mpg. Suspension. Steering and brakes. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
