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.

2013 Kia Sorento Owner Comments

While driving in parking lot and breaking the engine stopped, engine light came on. Car would not restart. Took multiple tries to get gear shift into park. Engine finally restarted. Took in to dick hannah dealer to check codes, after 2 hours they could find nothing and had not heard of the problem. Apparently they don't have internet access where this NHTSA site reports 14, now 15, of the same instances. This is a very unsafe situation & the dealers don't know about it........really. This is our first and probably last Kia. This vehicle has had the electronic throttle failure while driving, faulty back seat latch, leaky power steering fitting draining most of the fluid out.
