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

Headlights blowing all the time. Also the windshield wipers have lost there park position and when they are turned off they stop in front of the drivers line of sight and makes it very difficult to see what is going on around you while driving. I have talked to several people that have the same make and model and year as mine and they are having the same problems.

problem #1

Mar 072008

Sorento 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,800 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Kia Sorento. The front window continued to develop frost in the passenger compartment. The contact noticed stress fractures on the windshield from within the vehicle. While making a right turn at 5 mph, the contact noticed additional cracks in the window. The contact is unable to see out of the front window due to the damage. The insurance company will authorize that the window be replaced. The dealer diagnosed the failure twice and charged the contact $50 per visit. They also stated that the windshield was not covered by the warranty and she should have done her research prior to purchasing the vehicle. The contact lives in a state where it snows frequently. She is currently unable to drive the vehicle when it snows due to the linkage between the steering and rear end of the vehicle, which prevents proper traction. The failure mileage was 18,800 and current mileage was 18,893. Updated 4/2/08 updated 04/02/08
