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.

The driver seat's front right tie down system has broken from seemingly inadequate steel cross sectional area abd anoverall a bad design. The power seat is manufactured by modifying manual seat with obvious defects, as a result of which the mounting/connection parts are subjected to stress and combined with inadequate sizes of sections definitely resulted in breaks.

Sedona

The passenger sliding doors on my 2009 Kia Sedona is very hard to open, sometimes, the right door can not be opened at all. There was a door latch recall in 2011, I had the latches attended to, afterwards, the doors worked for a while and then they stopped and havent worked since. Also, the automatic feature only worked for 9 months after purchasing the vehicle. This is a real safety hazard due to the door not allowing you to enter or exit if a problem occurs. To open the door, you literally have to stick your fingers in the crease outside of the door, pull on the handle while tugging on the door extremely hard. I believe this is dangerous and a huge safety issue. The dealer told me it was nothing they could do or it would be very expensive to check the problem out.
