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.

Airbag light on without crash or defect in well maintained auto. Apparently this totally inactivates all airbags. Multiple similar complaints in NHTSA system. Needs to be recall, since most owners are unable to afford dealer repairs to this defective system on this model car. Often attributed to defective seatbelt sensors. Hopefully no one will die because of this problem, and Kia usa should pay to repair this known defect!
