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.

2006 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 292007


  • miles


My sister-in-law owns a 2006 Kia Sorento and both rear tail lights are out and do not function, only the 3rd middle light works. I have since personally observed 4 Kia Sorentos in the los angeles area on the road with the left, right or both rear tail lights not functioning. I have also observed 3 Kia Sorentos in the sf bay area with the same problem. Other Kia products may also have this issue but it is a major problem/concern with the Sorento. This is a safety issue and may result in an accident or injury. Your action to contact the manufacturer is needed for a long term solution and/or recall.
