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.

2007 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

I have taken this vehicle to the purchasing dealer 7 times for multiple issues including transmission or torque converter difficulty switching gears, the main wiring harness fell down into the dash, poor braking performance. The major issue has been the random, but daily ESC off light coming on and off. The dealer seems either unwilling or incapable of correcting this issue. I have filed a customer service request we Kia two weeks ago, randy ext 45295 Kia customer service assured me he would żget back to meż in two business days. Today is the seventh business day and no reply. It's my opinion that the ESC issue, wiring harness, and poor braking are issues that should be address in via recall since Kia customer service and warranty commitment are meaning less to Kia corporation.
