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.

When I brake the car in the high speed(maybe 40 miles and more in highway), the steering wheel is shaking, and I need to handle it very hard. And this situation is more serious in highway. And the airbag light is always on when I am driving.

2009 Kia Rondo has power steering and alternator failure during rain storms. The vehicle completely loses power steering, the brake and battery lights appear on the dashboard, and car sometimes shuts off. The car will restart, but makes a high-pitched screeching noise temporarily. It seems to happen mostly when the car is turning. I have not been in an accident yet, but it worries me to drive it in the rain (it even does it sometimes when driving through a puddle). I've seen many complaints about this on different forums, including Kia.com forums. A couple links are listed below: www.Kia-forums.com/Kia-carens-Rondo-forum/82332-power-steering-failure-wet-conditions-Kia.html it is surprising that there has not been a recall of any type on this problem. Please look into this.

The contact owns a 2009 Kia Rondo. The contact stated that while driving approximately 25 mph during inclement conditions, the vehicle lost power steering and the brakes failed. The failure recurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who was unable to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 120,000. The VIN was not available.
