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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

[xxx] 2016 Kia Sorento (VIN # [xxx]) sunroof exploded while on interstate 55 northbound in jackson, ms on 10-21-15 at approx. 8:30pm cst with no traffic or obstructions or overheads. Our mileage at the time was less than 200 miles. [xxx] was driving and I was the front passenger. The roof was closed as was the cloth shield (which probably save our life). The explosion was violent like an M-80 going off. We collected some of the glass shards (which shattered into little sharp pieces which would have probably killed us) and chunks of glass on top of the shield. At the time, we were about 900 miles from home and found a tool store, purchased duct tape and taped the remaining moon roof (see pictures) to get us on the road home. Luckily, there was no rain on our remaining journey. I contacted our dealership gerald Kia naperville where they requested we file a consumer complaint with Kia corporate (case #[xxx]) where they denied any issues related to their panoramic sun roof (though there are noted suits, articles, television interviews and of course NHTSA investigations (https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#Q=Kia+Sorento+sunroof+explosions). I contacted my insurance company travelers and they are reviewing the case ([xxx]). the car will be at the gerald kai dealership in naperville il on Monday 10-26-15 around 9am. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
