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.

At least 3 times in the last 2 weeks the drivers seat back started moving to the recline position with not input on seat adjustment from the driver. This is a scary situation as if you are leaning into the seat back you start moving to the reclined position. Trying to stop the recline using the control would stop the movement until you let up on the seat back control. We found if you move the seat adjustment for forward and back (bottom of seat) the recline stopped. I am planning on taking car to dealer but this is not occur very often.

Sedona

  • 19,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Kia Sedona. The contact stated that the driver and passenger seats would move back and forth independently whether the vehicle was accelerating or at a stop. The contact stated that the seats would not lock into place and the vehicle was taken to the dealer for further inspection. The dealer replaced the locking mechanism on the driver side seat, which worked for one month but the passenger side seat was not repaired. The manufacturer stated that an inspector tested the vehicle and determined the seats should be moving and was normal for the vehicle. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 19,000.
