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

Jul 222006

Sorento 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,894 miles


2006 Sorento was purchased in Nov 2005. Jan of 2006 the check engine light came on and I was told it was due to possible loose gas cap. First time tail light went out was in July of 2006. Right rear tail light was replaced. In October of 2006 a tail light bulb was replaced during my 15,000 mile maintenance. In November 2006 right tail light went out and Kia replaced bulb once again. In December of 2006 left tail light went out and check engine light came on. Bulb was replaced and I was told my spark plugs were misfiring and were replaced. A day later my check engine light came on again. I am now trying to see what day I can take off of work yet again to go and have the check engine light looked at.
