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.

The contact owns a 2006 Kia Sorento. The contact stated that the low beam headlights failed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection where it was diagnosed that an electrical shortage was causing the low beams to fail prematurely. The low beam bulbs were replaced numerous times, but the failure was not corrected. The manufacturer was not notified. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 30,000.

Both headlights (low beam) were out. Took the vehicle to the dealership and had to pay $98.15 to get them replaced. The dealership said the warranty is good for 12 months or 12,000 miles. A couple of months back I also had both tail lights go out and had to pay for them as well.
