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.

Have a 2007 new sedona from Kia. It comes with a key remote that closes the two back passenger doors. These sliding doors do not stop until it detects a strong resistance against it which makes it very unsafe for children. My child got her arm caught in the door for a brief second leaving a nice bruise. Luckily she pulled her arm out before it closed all the way. When I called smithtown Kia in NY, they told me that they do not have sensors and it will stop when there is enough resistance against it. This is unacceptable and a huge safety problem. Imagine if a child does not get their arm caught, but their head? please advise on what can be done with this. Thanks.
