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.

2013 Kia Soul Owner Comments

Our 2013 Kia Soul only has one manual door lock which is located on the driver door. When the temperature is below freezing, the key becomes extremely hard to turn or won't turn at all. If the key breaks while someone is attempting to open the door, there is no other lock to allow the person to enter the vehicle with a second key. This is the only car which I have known to only have one means of unlocking the doors to the vehicle, that is, the driver side door lock. The car should be required to have at least two locks so that if one person breaks the key while trying to open the lock in freezing conditions a relative can use a second lock and spare key to open the other lock.
