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.

2006 Kia Rio Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 082009


  • 42,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Kia Rio. The contact stated that the vehicle would stall upon decelerating and the engine warning light would illuminate on the instrument panel. Typically, the vehicle was able to restart immediately after the failure. In addition, the vehicle would vibrate abnormally when in fifth gear while driving between 40-60 mph. The dealer replaced the throttle body and the fuel pump, but the failure recurred shortly after the repair. The failure has not been properly remedied. The contact called the manager of the service department and is currently waiting for a response regarding the cause of the failure. The failure mileage was 42,000 and current mileage was 43,997.
