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.

2008 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #3

Sedona 6-cyl

  • 34,400 miles


Going uphill toward traffic light, accelerating to maintain speed for crossing intersection, check engine light on, ESC light on, engine suddenly idling causing total loss of power near the intersection. Had enough momentum to pull on the grass shoulder. Diagnostic from garage: Throttle sensor stuck. Extremely dangerous situation.

In 18 months my 2008 Kia Sedona has continuous electrical problems, with this complaint focusing on the fact my vehicle has blown the 200 amp main fuse 4 times in 18 months, including while driving the vehicle 2 of the 4 times, causing complete loss of power and a safety issue as both times it happen while highway driving, with the dealer not being to determine the cause of the problem each and every time. They replace the fuse, run tests, and give the car back, at which point anywhere from 10 days to 6 months the fuse blows again. Note this same vehicle was in and out of the dealer repair for a check engine light they were unable to turn off for more than 48 hours at a time (computer reset) for 9 months which I sued under lemon law for.

Vehicle would lose power to a crawl, then if you let it sit for 10 minutes it would regain some power by flooring it to a max speed of 35-40 mph
