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.

Motor vehicle part defect- spare tire carrier assembly was defective, as I was unable to remove the spare tire from the carrier after having a flat tire on the interstate. The carrier's threads seemed to be defective, as I was unable to lower or raise the carrier assembly. I contacted the Kia dealership about the problem, but the service director refused to fix the issue unless I was willing to pay for the replacement of defective parts. I refused since the spare tire assembly has never been used until September 2, 2006, when I had a flat tire on the interstate and discovered this defective part.
