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.

2006 Kia Sedona with serious safety issues. Passenger sliding door opens while driving, opens and closes and will not close all the way. Starter was replaced. Air bag light was looked at. Consumer says there are more problems. The rotors had to be replaced due them being out of round. Several parts within the door were replaced such as the cable and door switch assembly and door latch assembly. The vehicle accelerated unexpectedly. The rear sensors and rear caliper brake hose needed to be repaired.

I was in a parking lot once again, loading my children in the passenger side of the 2006 Kia Sedona that we have, and when I went to shut the door, it bounced back open five times without latching...this will make the fourth time that we are going to take it in tomorrow morning for door problems...this will make the third time that we have had the same problems with the passenger sliding door bouncing back open, and not latching. Big safety issues that need addressed soon! the first time taken in, problem could not be duplicated...second time, the service dept installed new cables in both sliding doors, the third time was for the drivers side sliding door, that was stuck open and would not shut at all and had to drive down a busy street that way...they found a cable nut that was unplugged in the door and supposedly fixed that, but they would not provide me with any proof of my vehicle being in the service dept while I went to pick up the van from obrien...service guy kept saying he would put my papers in the mail....sounds kinda fishy to me....and now this (doors bouncing open again on the passenger side) I have two very small children that ride in the two seats there, but the service dept and obrien does not seem to care about that...so, we will see what happens in the morning!

I was out shopping with my 2 year old twins and my mother and we were in a parking lot loading our stuff in the 2006 Kia Sedona once again and the van door would not close. It was stuck open....we waited in the kroger parking lot for about 2 and 1/2 hours while no one at obrien Kia would come and get myself and my two small children, and the door was wide open, and it was starting to get dark out and the breeze was picking up...we have had the van in obrien 2 other times for the passenger sliding door bouncing back open and not latching (big safety issue, and now the drivers side sliding door won't even shut (another big safety issue) with small children in the car...who's to say it won't happen while we are driving down the highway and when is it going to actually going to get fixed, or does someone have to get killed first!!!! a receptionist from obrien finally came about 2 1/2 hours later and drove my car down a busy street with the side door still open and the headlights turned off, and took it to the shop to be fixed, and I now have a rental car again. They say it will get fixed this time again!

Have had our 2006 Kia Sedona van in the shop for passenger sliding door not closing...I will go to close the door, and the door slides right back open and doesn't even latch. This has happened too many times too count now, and this is a brand new van. This is very scary, especially when you don't know if it is going to fly open when you are driving down the road with your kids in the car. The dealership was not able to duplicate the problem, however, an hour after I left the dealership that day, I was stuck in a wal-mart parking lot with my kids in the van and trying to get the passenger sliding door to shut while it was cold outside again! huge safety problem if you ask me and my family! we were just outside again tonight in freezing temps with my 2 year old girls and stood outside in a parking lot for about a 1/2 hour trying to get the door to stay shut.
