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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

On May 13, 2006 I purchased a 2006 Kia Sedona van from a local dealership. On September 22, 2006, October 11, 2006, January 3, 2007, and January 18, 2007 had this vehicle to dealer for service due to the air bag light coming on while driving and staying on. During the first occasion the light was reset as the service technician could not find a problem. On the second occasion a code appeared, but no parts were ordered since the code could not be diagnosed. The light was again reset, and the van sent back to me. On the third occasion two codes appeared, part were ordered, but it was still unclear of the problem. Again the service department reset the air bag light and said they would call when the parts arrived. After not hearing from anyone, I called the dealership taylor Kia, and they told me they were sorry for not contacting me, and I could bring the van in on January 18, 2007. On that occasion, a part was replaced, a leg assembly. I was told that the light issue should be fixed. On May 10, 2007, my wife was driving with my 15 year old daughter in the front passenger seat. They were hit in the driver side by a vehicle traveling about 50 mph. The front driver, and passenger air bags deployed. The side air bags did not deploy, and upon impact the seat belts released, instead of locking, with no retraction. This cause my wife and daughter to be thrown around in the front of the vehicle. According to the van's manual, the air bags, and seat belts should work together. The fact that the seat belts released could have allowed for either the driver or the passenger to be ejected. I am afraid to drive this van again as we have five children total. This was a big safety concern. We have reported this issue to taylor Kia, toledo, Ohio, four times. I am now unsure if the problem was ever corrected. I am also positive no repair made to the van will ever convince me that all safety equiptment is functioning on this particular van.
