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.

When trying to open the drivers door, there was a loud pop and the door was unable to be opened from the outside. This is a major issue in the event of an emergency or an accident. I've gone to the Kia dealer and they are quoting an outrageous amount just to take a look at the issue. This is inconvenient while I travel to and from work, as I have to climb through the passenger side in order to get in the car! the problem initially began December of 2014, and my father had to leave a stick or a wired hanger on the floor boards so that when entering the vehicle I would lean in through either the passenger or rear drivers door to open the driver door. On 8/4/15, the door has stopped working completely. This is obviously a manufacturing issue as the same thing has happened to the rear passenger door as well. I haven't found an independent repair person that can actually fix this issue and it's something that needs attention asap!

My daughter was on her way to work, she was coming to a stop at the end of the road and had no brakes and she continued on across the road went up the bank across the road and when she reached the top it began sliding down and ended up laying on the passenger side. Thankfully she was not hurt to bad. I have had the car checked out, replaced the windshield and passenger door window and mirror. The mechanic replaced the master cylinder, and still had no breaks, come to find out after calling Kia they said it was the (hecu) unit.they are saying it will cost around $1500 to replace this.I have never heard of nothing more ridiculous. The car is still drivable. The passenger side doors are bent-up some, but they open and close just fine don't look good but its still drivable. I think Kia should replace this (hecu) because its a factory defect.

Warp rotors on vehicle occurs every 3000 - 6000 miles of driving car. Consequence: Car wheels vibrate heavily when attempting to stop vehicle part were turned and then replaced and problem continues to recur.
