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.

Experiencing vibration in brakes caused by warped rotors. This is not covered under warranty because dealer said brakes were used to slow down vehicle while going downhill on mountain roads. Vehicle is not used much in mountains, mostly stop-and-go city traffic. If this vehicle cannot withstand this type of use, it is not safe for use on american roads. Kia apparently uses under designed, inadequate materials and then excludes these parts from their sham of a warranty.
