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 Rondo Owner Comments

Rondo 6-cyl

  • 18,000 miles


I own a 2007 Kia Rondo. We bought the car new with 6 miles on it. In less than 4 years we have put brakes on this car 2 times. Our mechanic says this is a definate design flaw. The sliding mechanisms in the Kia brakes collects rust inside the brake and hardens and prematurely wears the brakes. Less than 2 years ago I paid for my 1st set of brakes. Now I am replacing all 4 brakes! this will cost over $800! my front brakes are down to nothing again. This is a safety hazard! I have spoken to other Kia owners and they have break issues too. You go to a dealer and they either deny it or say well that's a Kia. I will keep the brakes for this replacement if you would be interested in viewing them. Another thing no parts are available so the cost are increased.

Defective aluminum factory wheels - 2007 Kia Rondo ex. I was driving on a four-lane divided highway (U. S. highway 11, southbound, 2 miles North of kinston, North Carolina). Speed was approx. 55 mph. I moved to the passing lane to overtake a tractor trailer truck. I immediately came upon some road debris in the passing lane and the tires on the left side of the car drove over some of it. None of it appeared larger than 2X4 lumber. The debris, probably items that fell off of a contractor's truck, bent both wheel rims on the driver's side letting the air out of the tires. I temporarily lost control of the car. I grabbed onto the steering wheel to stay on the road. I steered the car toward the right lane, and coasted until the speed came down below 25 mph. Had I hit the brakes I believe the car might have rolled over. I pulled over and parked on the right side of the road and called for help.
