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.

: the contact stated the rear passenger side tire fell off while the contact was jacking up the vehicle. The non service dealer determined this occurred due to the wheel bearing disintegrating. The front driver side wheel bearing also disintegrated. The manufacturer had a recall #05V232000; regarding the wheels, but the vehicle was not included in the recall due to the VIN.

The contact stated that while driving the left rear passenger wheel came loose from the vehicle with the tire as well as the lugs nuts still intact. The contact was able to coast into a gas station before the wheel came completely off. Before this incident recall 05V232000 repairs were performed on rear wheel bearings for water by a local Kia dealership. The dealership inspected the inside wheel bearings. The vehicle was towed back to the Kia dealership. The dealer could not determine why this occurred, and could not find any moisture within the bearings. The vehicle is currently at the dealer for repairs.

Contact attempted to have a recall taken care off but the parts were not available from Kia. They were on back order. Contact was told by the dealer and by Kia they were on national backorder. He has been told that back order will take approximately 2 weeks. He was concerned because the recall was for damaged outer wheel bearings.
