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.

2005 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #1

Sedona 6-cyl

Bought new Jan-2006, early morning start up car would make loud gurgle and hissing sound, then when put into gear the brakes would grab and make a grinding feeling through the brake pedal and pull to the right as it started to roll. Kia says nothing wrong with it. Finally it was determend that ABS module was bad, and Sept 2007 im having the same trouble again.but worse. Car will not stop all the way even when brake pedal is applied at full force. The car just does not want to stop. Causing the car to continue rolling thru an intersection.
