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.

2011 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

Sorento 6-cyl

  • 53,200 miles


I was drive eastbound on I-70 in Colorado in the mountains near the eisenhower tunnel at 2:40pm. There was no one in front of me on the road. Traffic was light. It was approximately 5 degrees F. I heard a loud bang and pulled over. I got out of the car. The front sunroof on my Kia Sorento exploded outward. Glass was pointing upwards. Nothing hit my car. It just happened. Glass was in a million little pieces. Luckily the inside shade was closed, otherwise glass would have fallen all over me and my son (in the back seat). I cleaned up the glass as best as I could. We called Kia roadside assistance, but ended up driving to the next town and getting some cardboard to temporarily keep the wind out, and drove home. We are waiting to see if Kia will cover it under warranty.
