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.

I HATE KIA SORENTO VEHICLES, I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ONE AGAIN. WISHED TO GOD I DIDN'T BUY THIS ONE. SO MANY PROBLEMS AND SO LITTLE MONEY I HAVE. CAN'T TAKE MOTHER TO DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS, CAN'T GO TO CHURCH. ONLY VEHICLE I HAVE AND ITS BEEN JUNK SINCE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I HATE KIA, I HATE KIA. ENGINE LIGHT IS ON, SEAT BELT LIGHT IS ON, NOW WON'T START AT ALL. DON'T GET RECALL PAPERS. HAD ONE RECALL FIXED, FOUND OUT ABOUT RECALL MYSELF. KIA DEALERSHIP TRIED TO CHARGE US FOR IT ANYWAYS. THEY DIDN'T GET NO MONEY. I EVEN TRIED TO SELL MY VEHICLE BACK TO THEM. NOW I KNOW WHY THEY DIDN'T WANT TO BUY IT, THEY KNEW KIA VEHICLES ARE TOTALLY JUNK.

ITS A SHAME AND DISGRACE TO SALE TOTAL JUNK VEHICLES TO PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES WHO NEEDS A VEHICLE. IF I HAD THE MONEY I WOULD JUST BURN MY KIA SORENTO AND GET RID OF THAT JUNK. I HATE KIA SORENTO VEHICLES, PLEASE NO ONE BUY A KIA VEHICLE. THEY ARE JUNK. DON'T BUY A KIA VEHICLE. THEY ARE FREAKING JUNK.
