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.

Each door handle is popping and I'm unable to open doors from the outside. The rear passenger door has stopped working and at the time the child lock was on and I can no longer use that door at all. The seatbelt on the rear driver's side will not buckle into the socket and my child has to wrap the belt around him when he rides in the back. Should an accident occur, not only will he not be fully covered by his safety seat, but if we should have to escape suddenly, neither of us can just open our doors and get out! this is an ongoing issue and it's quite expensive to get fixed at the dealer. Also, just recently while driving the gear shaft popped out of place and my father taped it back on so that I'm able to get back and forth to work and school.

The contact owns a 2007 Kia Sorento. When the steering wheel was turned, the contact heard a popping noise coming from the front end of the vehicle. The dealer aligned the front end of the vehicle and repaired a casting cam underneath the front end; however, the failure still persists. The failure mileage was 5,000 and current mileage was 10,100.
