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

problem #1

Nov 152007

Sedona 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,456 miles


I have a Kia Sedona van with approximately 65,000 miles. It has had numerous headlights bulbs that have had to be replaced. In an attempt to prevent this, the dealership has even replaced the entire headlight. The last time a bulb burned out the dealership replaced both bulbs even though only one bulb burned out. The rational for replacing both bulbs was that all of the current was diverted to the headlight that wasn't burned out, hence it shortened the life of the bulb that was working. However, six weeks later a new bulb was already burned out. As I understand from talking with representatives at my dealership, this is a common occurance with the Kia van. I have had this problem twice when travelling out of state -- once when it was foggy and both times at night. It is very dangerous to have a car lose a headlight out-of-the blue at night when traveling on unfamiliar roads. Plus, this is becoming expensive!
