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.

While researching trouble with my 2007 Kia Rondo I checked recall information. I noticed there was a recall NHTSA campaign id number:08V459000 for the exact symptoms my 2007 Kia Rondo with 55K miles has.

Yesterday, my "check engine light came on. Then, I was on the highway and the car just stopped accelerating. I had to pull to the side of the road several times, to turn the car off and restart in order to get the car to accelerate. After several stops, the car just would not accelerate and I had to pratically drift home.

The following applies to my 2007 Kia Rondo with approx 36,000 miles on it. It has the V6 engine. My problem is a severe safety hazard in that the engine idle does not come down as the car stops and in some cases it races up. Unfortunately it is very sporadic and it has been to the dealer three times with them unable to duplicate it. This morning 4/18/2010 I came to a stop and the tach said 1500 and was actually going up. I took it out of drive and it immediately went up to 4000+ RPM (I was not even near the accelerator). It only seems to do this on cooler mornings when it is almost, but not totally, warmed up (4-8 miles) but once again very sporadic. It will go weeks without happening. The dealer suggested possible carbon buildup on the throttle body so I ran two bottles of fuel injection cleaner though it. Did not do it while this was done then happened again. The really bad part is there are no codes being given. My suspicion is throttle position sensor or speed sensor but the dealer said they checked them and they were within spec. This leaves basic program faults. I have documented my 3 trips to the dealer in case of later potential accidents and litigation. I don't know if others have experienced this but in traffic or being driven by someone without quick reflexes, it could cause a serious accident. It seems the only answer the dealer has is to leave the vehicle with them for as long as it takes to duplicate the problem (already left it there overnight once with no help).or pay for a special cleaning of the throttle body both of which are unacceptable. This is obviously a warranty item and they should fix it for free or if it has to be left with them for weeks then there should be a free loaner. I have also contacted Kia customer service and so far they have been less than helpful with the first recommendation to call them from the dealership. When I did no one who could make a decision was there and they have not called back.

2007 Kia Rondo engine stalls for no reason ever since I have gotten this car the engine has stall on a number of times when at a stop sign or stop light for no reason what so ever. As the car is about to take off from stop the engine stall out. I have taken it in on a number of times for this and they tell me the check engine light should come on with any stall of the engine. No check engine light has ever come on! this has happened ever since they replace the transmission after 3000 miles when we got the car.

Had just bought the car from dealership, before I took car off lot, I noticed check engine light. Returned inside and left car at dealership for 1 week and when returned, found out gas cap was cause. Apparently after it clicks to show it's locked, it must be clicked a few more times to keep check engine light from coming on. I noticed 1 week later that when parking or emergency brake is depressed, the brake does not engage. Called dealership and 1 week later adjustment was performed. I persuaded dealership to cover the cost since I had just bought the car from them 2 weeks earlier.
