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.

Car has been huge headache bought new in 2003 has been towed twice for leaking coolant lines that rusted out. Last time was on vacation Kia has not returned on phone call or E-mail as it cost me 300 dollars and car is under bumper to bumper warranty has 34K miles. Drivers door handle broke and airbag light was on fixed by dealer. One brake pad lining fell off at 25K miles replaced myself. Most important we had a rear tire blow out at 60 mph in three lanes of traffic. Tire shredded apart with 28K miles and was New York inspected 2 months earlier. Other back tire bubbled out on one side and made the car shudder. Replaced tires myself but please investigate this car now I am really worried after reading about the airbags not deploying.
