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 contact owns a 2007 Kia Rondo. He had continuous electrical failure with his vehicle. During the recent failure, the vehicle caught fire under the hood. The vehicle was pushed outside his garage in order to save his home from being burned. There was a short in the ABS module and the brakes failed. On several occasions, he also lost power on the electrical instrument panel. The dealer replaced the entire fuse panel and within three days, the failure recurred. The dealer stated that he would need authorization from the manufacturer before repairing the vehicle a second time. The manufacturer advised him that they had the right to make the repairs; however, the contact refused since previous attempts to repair the vehicle were unsuccessful. The current mileage was approximately 22,000 and the failure mileage was approximately 1,485. Updated 02/05/09. The consumer stated the ABS light illuminated. When he applied the brake, it went to the floor. The wiring in the dash shorted out on several occasions. Updated 02/10/09.
