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.

Sedona 6-cyl

I hurt my back trying to remove the "removable" rear seats in my 2003 Kia Sedona. The seats are not only very heavy, but the rearward jerking motion recommended by my dealer to remove the seat often fails to disengage the seat, causing back injury. My dealer told me the specific seats I have are not broken, but they agreed that Kia's design for removal is flawed. On the recommendation of my dealer service consultant yves fernandez (321-951-9595), I spoke with "elvina" at Kia customer service directly (2/14/2003 800-333-4542). Elvina refused to help me in any way. Specifically, she also refused to acknowledge my complaint in writing. These seats are dangerous and should be fixed to make them safer and easier to remove. Can you please help me with this?
