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.

In July of 2006, while on vacation, we noticed a lug nut missing from the right front wheel, and one next to it was finger loose. (new tires were put on in February 2006). I replaced these at the next exit. Took van to Kia dealer the next week, they replaced with oem lug nuts. The following week, I noticed a lug nut was missing again from the same wheel. Took to Kia, they replaced. 2 weeks later, I noticed a lug nut missing from same tire again. Took to Kia to be replaced and they said they didn't know why they kept falling off, had not seen this before. 2 months passed, and I tried to rotate my tires in early Oct. One stud snapped off, and another seized up, if I tried to get it off, it would have snapped off also. Took it to the dealer today, they replaced 2 studs and the 2 lug nuts. Again, no ideas as to why this is occurring. I'm afraid there is something wrong with the wheel studs / wheel assembly, which may result in a wheel separation while driving, resulting in serious injury to passengers/other people, and serious damage to vehicles. I think this should be investigated before someone gets injured/killed.
