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.

2010 Kia Soul Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 6,500 miles


While driving on I-95 in South Florida I had a difficult time getting my 2010 Kia Soul to stop during a panic stop situation. I am over 210 lbs. And had to put every ounce of strength I have to get the car to stop. I am 63 and have been driving since 15 and never had a car react like this Kia. It has 4-wheel disc brakes. If [xxx] was driving we would have ended up on the rear deck of the car in front of us. [xxx] is small and would not been able to push as hard as I did. I took the car to the dealer and they could not find anything wrong. I would like to make you aware of this problem (braking issues) because I certainly need a car which will stop on command. I talked to a young girl here in nashua who owns a 2011 Kia and she told me she thought there was something "wrong" with her brakes also. It is very scary when a car won't stop like it should. Thank you for listening to my complaint. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
