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.

2004 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 082005

Sedona 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,174 miles


The contact complained about brake problem four months after she bought the car. The car started to shimmy. After she had the car ten months with 7,174 miles on it she took the car to the dealer, and the dealer changed the rotors and then the drums. About two month later when the car had 8,317 miles on it the vehicle started doing it again. The dealer told the contact they could not fix it under warranty because this was not a safety issue. She bought the car brand new in may-2004.
