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.

2007 Kia Rio Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 222014

Rio 4-cyl

  • miles


The 'airbag' dash light illuminates and the dealership has determined the cause of the failure is the sensor assembly located in the front passenger's seat cushion. This problem was addressed by a 'voluntary safety recall campaign' conducted by Kia affecting "2006-2008 my Rio occupant classification system mat" but according to the local dealership my Kia Rio manufactured in April 2007 was not included in this recall even though the problem/diagnosis/fix is identical.

problem #1

Rio 4-cyl

  • 61,230 miles
Just after the warranty expired at 61, 230 miles we had to replace the front passenger side seat cushion because the air bag light came on and Kia would not cover it under their recall. Kia's safety recall campaign number is SC097.
