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 I bought this vehicle I did not realize that it would have so many issues. I think it started in March of 2013. I started smelling a bad odor when I start my truck up and realized it was coming from the ac unit. Had it checked out and was informed that it was the cabin filter and I would have to pay to have it fixed. Later went back for another mater and was told at first that it was under warranty, but once I got to the dealership I was told it could not be fixed. Every since I had this truck my drivers seat goes down by it self and I just don't see what the point in taking it to the dealership because they never fix anything. I feel that purchasing a Kia from rick cas Kia was a very big mistake. I will never recommend this dealership to anyone..........
