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.

Like so many others had to replace the cooling tank, and now the air conditioner that is on it, I can't get parts for it. The line has hole in it, the way it's made, they say, wasn't made to be sold in the states, was to have been sold overseas. WELL, how did it not make it over there and now can't get parts. Called Kia, like everything else, got the run around and they won't return call. And how can they not have any parts?
