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.

Kia Rio 2005 is a very poorly built car. The passengers door will not open, a mechanism in the door is broken. Since the door won't open no one seems to know how to repair this problem. The door panel can not be removed from the door without the door being open. Never again will I buy a Kia of any kind.
