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

Had to get my car serviced because antifreeze was pouring out of my car. After they looked at my car I was notified that Kia does not have the part to fix my car but insists that I can still drive it. Meanwhile I need to fill up the tank after my errands for the day, that's an estimate of $20 a day!they told me it would take up to 2-3 weeks until this part came in. I found it disturbing how they told me I can drive this car while it pours out antifreeze (antifreeze is poison to animals). Also to get it serviced I called the place where I bought it and they couldn't even look at my car till another 3 weeks or so. My car is now an hour away and Kia will not provide me with a rental. Its a shame how they scam people into buying the car for the warranty because once they have your money they don't care after that.
