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.

Airconditioner blower motor failure accompanied by noise caused by the (2)cabin air filter elements coming loose from filter element housing and lodging in the air conditioner evaporator unit located behind the glove box. The Kia dealer was unable to find the filter elements during inspection of the evaporator unit while diagnosing the source of the noise. The Kia district manager for Florida refuses to address this concern and does not consider it a safety concern. The cost to fix this item is $280.

Kia Sorento-2007-front passenger-air bag "idiot light". for 2 yrs. Trips back and forth regarding this light to dealer. Unable to assure that air bag system is really working. Light is on when someone is sitting in seat and indicates the air bag is off. Seats and sensors have been replaced to no avail. They just told me today 8-23-2010 that there is no more they can do. Light is still on and their computer still says that it is working. You have many complaints of the same thing-is anything being done? either the light, sensor, air bag or computer is not right. This has been a problem since I bought the car new. This is an intermittent occurrence-doesn't matter when or who is sitting in the seat, if the car is warm or cold. The seat(sensor) has been changed, computer has diagnosed and Kia has talked to the tech's. their machines are not telling them that something is wrong but the service managers and sales people have witnessed it. Are you investigating this?
