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.

Front end wreck, totalled the car but the airbags failed to deploy. Impact severe enough that front doors had to be pried open.

Airbag light and passenger seatbelt warning light came on, symptoms similar to those described in Kia recall campaign SC094. Kia was contacted and they advised that this vehicle not covered under the recall. I feel possible it is one of the affected models.

The contact owns a 2007 Kia Rondo. The contact stated that the air bag warning light was illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where a diagnostic was performed, which located the failure at the front passenger's side mat sensor. The manufacturer advised that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign number 12V244000 (air bag). The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 104,000.

Rondo

Ran off the road by a truck and went into a ditch. Not one airbag deployed. The car was equipped with knee airbags, front airbags, side impact airbags and side curtain airbags. Totaled the car, was lifeflighted to vanderbilt. They had difficulty getting me out of the car because the airbags did not deploy. They could not cut the bar between the front and back seats because it was loaded with undeployed airbags. Had a broken leg/hand and neck, chest and back injuries. Notified Kia to find out why the airbags did not deploy. First was told that "it was obvious that I did not hit the right spots to trigger the airbags". sent them pictures, copy of page in the owners manual showing that most of the sensors were hit and a copy of the accident report. After calling almost every day for three weeks they told me that their engineers had determined "that it was not a severe enough impact to deploy the airbags" despite the car being totaled.
