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.

All 4 tires (kumho solus KL21 P235/65R17 103T M+S) on my 2103 Kia Sorento are showing signs of cracking in the sidewall. The tread depth on the tires is still good. The cracking is very concerning.

Sorento 4-cyl

While drive at slow speeds of about 5 to 10 mph there is a ticking/squeaking from the right front. It goes away at higher speeds. I have been in to the dealer 4 time, reported it to Kia Corp. And the regional office called to tell me they are aware of the noise, it is a part issue, that over 30% of this model made in 2013 have the problem and they are working on a solution. That was several days ago. If they know there is a problem then they should be made to recall the cars and replace the parts in question.
