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

I have a 2003 Kia Sorento that failed the emissions test. When going onto the website for recalls it comes up that their was a recall in November 2005. I never got notified and when calling Kia they are telling me it is not my car as my car was built in a different month, and I am telling them that the recall is coming up for the same safety/emissions and they will not listen to me. If there is a recall on my car for the year listed and the recall is the emissions that is making my car fail what can I do.
