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.

2009 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

He sliding doors on the 2009 Kia Sedona freeze shut. Leading to pulling and yanking on the handles to get the doors to open. This happens on a very regular basis and has since the first freeze of purchasing the van in October of 2009. After noticing that two other vans in the area have the same issue, I have decided to make a complaint. At times we have loaded our children through the front doors to allow them getting in the van. Another time we had to drive our other vehicle. It will eventually cause the handles to break off the van with the amount of force we need to use to open the doors.
