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.

The headlights keeps blowing. Have replaced 3 times. All the light on the inside keeps coming on (battery, check engine light, seat belt light; bell rings). Had alternator checked and it is fine. The fuses are fine. There is defect with this vehicle, I saw others with the same complaint, even on newer models. The company needs to fix this. Can't drive the vehicle at night. And the light replacement is expensive. There is a shaking and rumbling sound coming from vehicle. Have had engine problems, have had problems every since I this vehicle. Its been at the shop more than on the road. Had I know that the vehicle had so many issues, I would have never purchased it.

Sedona 6-cyl

We purchased the 2002 Kia Sedona yesterday 12-28-03. We drove the car for about 45 minutes today, stopped for dinner at a fast food restaurant and then drove again for about 10 minutes when while driving the vehicle, the battery and brake warning lights flashed on and off a few times, then stayed on. When the brake pedal was depressed, the radio shut off and would not come back on. Then the seatbelt warning light came on and the dash lights, exterior and interior lights dimmed. While car was still in motion, the sunroof would not close and the other windows were very slow at closing. The car shuddered a couple of times as if ready to stall. We made it home just in time, the car stalled and would not restart. We were able to close the sunroof, but it was very slow. We have tried to charge the battery, but it does not seem to be taking a charge. Secondly the seatbelt indicator light does not sound or indicate that seatbelts are not buckled. Thirdly there is moisture under the drivers side head light. Also, when the vehicle is in motion and the dvd player is operating, there is a whistling sound heard through the dvd headphones/sound during acceleration. We will be notifying the dealer tomorrow morning.
