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. Notes: The 2011 Kia Sedona received a poor rollover rating from the IIHS.

The oil light came on while I was idling. I had it looked at and was told that the oil sending unit/ oil sensor switch was leaking oil. The oil leaks out faster than you can put it in. It's a 3 book hour job to replace. The part cost is between $30-$60. They need to take the intake off to get to the bad part. I'm sure it will be about a $500 fix. I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. If you google search this vehicle you will find that many other vans are having the same issue.
