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.

Basically, I am constantly having to change lights. (I.e. brake lights, interior dome lights, headlights).

problem #2

  • 5,000 miles
Headlights and taillights have been replaced at least 5 times in the 3 years I've had the Sorento. I keep my headlights off during the day and it seemed to delay the bulb going out as fast as it did when I kept them on all day. I keep replacement bulbs in my vehicle at all times due to this. You can buy them for $5 at your local auto parts store. Kia needs to recall this...way too many complaints for nothing to be wrong.
