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 2003 Kia Sorento was taken to the dealer for excessive frame rust, because it wouldn't pass PA state inspection. They say there was no problem with the excessive rust. Next year I took it to get it inspected and told the place that I go to that Kia, they said that the rust wasn't bad enough to fail it for inspection. So he put a sticker on it against his own judgment. Now this year at 49050 miles it is sitting because when I took it for inspection this year the frame rusted out so bad that the rear was ready to fall out... AND THEY SAY THERE WAS NO PROBLEM!!!!!
