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.

2016 Kia Sorento smells like vinegar or rotten spoil egg. Took it to where I got it from and they want me to pay $99 to air out the car. I refuse to pay that. My car is not the only one doing it I see other Kia's are doing it and the seat belt sometime don't go back and gets stuck in the door. This is a Kia problem that I shouldn;T have to pay for

The vehicle while traveling at various speeds will violently and suddenly try to momentarily move either left or right from its normal straight ahead forward moving position. The movement is much like when a car experiences a very strong gust of wind from the side when traveling at higher speeds, except in these cases there is no outside forces involved. These events seem to be random when they occur with no braking or human movement to the steering wheel in any way. The effect of the event causes the vehicle to move out of the normal straight line forward travel lane suddenl and without any advance notice, which is a very scary and unsafe situation. The event discribed happens can occur at mid to higher speeds and on all types of streets, but is most dangerous when it occurs at the higher speeds or in inter city close contact areas.
