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.

2005 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 152009

Sorento GSE 2.5L

  • Manual transmission
  • 116,457 miles


The jeep keeps cutting out. Has been to two Kia garages and neither has solved the problem. It is parked at my house and will not start. It seems to me that it is an electrical problem. I have spent over 4,000 euros on it so far and it is still not right. The garages keep reconditioning the injectors but that isn't the problem. If there is anyone that can help me or throw light on the matter please let me know. Thank you. LFG
