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.

2003 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

Sedona 6-cyl

2003 Kia Sedona accelerates without warning when the speed (cruise) control is enabled, but not activated (set button has not been pushed). This is not the known cable freezing problem, since we live in Florida. This is a safety problem if in traffic and can't react fast enough to hit the brakes before impacting a car in front. Dealer could not duplicate problem after a short drive and nothing was done.

The cruise control will not work at certain times and this has been going on for at least 6 or 7 months and is still happening. Dealer replaced cruise switch but that did not work, it still is doing the same thing. Went back to dealer and they said they could not doing anything about it until they see it happening. This is a problem because it does it when it feels like doing it and I cannot get it to the dealer when it is happening.
