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.

2008 Kia Rondo Owner Comments

Equipment: Air conditioner as warm weather in Maryland ended (2011) I noticed the air not being cool. Last year (2012) when it became hot enough to turn on the air conditioner I received nothing but hot air. The car was taken to have diagnosis, but I was told by several private mechanics that the compressor had freon and I should check with the dealer because if I add freon I could damage the compressor. Freon was not added. I contacted the dealer and I was informed I would be charged $100 for diagnosis. That's when I checked the internet to see similar issues with the verdict being the compressor was not working. Why would there been a compressor that goes out in a 2008 Kia Rondo in 2011.
