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 #2

Sorento 6-cyl

Fitting that connects hose to radiator snapped in half causing coolant to leak and engine to overheat. Informed by repair shop that this can be temporarily fixed by installing a brass fitting using epoxy but that the only permanent repair is to replace the entire radiator.

The issue is with 2 Kia I bought within the last year. Both automobiles had air conditioner compressors that failed within months of me purchasing it. The first Kia I bought was a sedona 2003. The second is a Sorento 2006 I bought November 2009.
