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.

2003 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

Sorento 6-cyl

  • 136,000 miles


I have a 2003 Kia Sorento..crankshaft pulley bolt broke, steering went out, belts and bolt fell off and air stopped working. This is the second time this has happened to me in the past 6 months. The result of this problems caused me to buy a new senor that was $400. After looking on the internet, it seems as though hundreds and maybe thousands of people are having a problem with this and it needs to be recalled. I was on a major highway when my steering went out and I could barely turn the car because the steering had locked. This is extremely dangerous and could potentially injure someone or others around them..please investigate this case.
