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.

2007 Kia Sedona. Attorney writes on behalf of consumers regarding several problems with the vehicle the consumer was driving, when suddenly the vehicle lost all power and dangerously dropped down from the posted speed of 60 mph to 10 mph. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. Eleven days later, the dealer stated the problem was fixed. The repair consisted of replacing the oxygen sensor, although the technician couldn't explain why it needed to be replaced. As the consumer was returning home, the loss of power occurred again and the vehicle was towed to the dealer. The dealer then stated the problem was with the fuel pump, so that was replaced. On July 31, 2009 the consumer retrieved the vehicle from the dealer and three hours later, the problem happened again. The dealer kept the vehicle for ten days. The vehicle was driven for a week with no problems. However, when the consumer attempted to pass a truck, the loss of power returned. The vehicle immediately slowed down from 60 mph to 20 mph. The consumer took the vehicle back to the dealer and on September 1, 2009 the dealer stated the vehicle had bad gasoline and therefore replaced the fuel pump and filter. The consumer kept the old fuel pump and filter and had it tested, which was later determined there was no sign of bad gasoline. Instead, the laboratory indicated the filter was clogged with an unknown clay substance. Nearly a year had passed with no incident. Then, once again while driving on August 20,2010, the vehicle began experiencing the same problem of suddenly losing all power. The vehicle was taken to a different dealer. They replaced the throttle sensors and upgraded the computer. However, an hour after picking up the vehicle, the problem occurred again. The vehicle was taken back to the old dealer and when they removed the fuel filter, they discovered it was clogged with a foreign colored material that looked the same as before. The consumer had to pay for another fuel filter and the dealer could not explain why it continued to happen.
