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.

problem #2

Soul Stock 1.6L

  • Manual transmission
  • 44,000 miles


Never heard of rear brakes wearing out before the front. car-- I bought new -- mostly highway miles. Front brakes were great, no wear hardly on them---- back were down to metal --- 70% of the braking is in the front so why did the rear wear out first--- Dourch KIA in Green Bay said that is the way it is --- real cold about the situation in fact rude about the issue

  • Automatic transmission

The brakes on all four wheel are "extremely" sensitive. the slightest pressure on the brake pedal brings braking system on "hard". in a panic stop situation It would put me thru the windshield it is very difficult to control the light touch to the brake pedal without over braking. The service man said this is normal. I don't think he knows any think, this isn't my first new car. the braking system is to sensitive making it difficult to control correct stopping distance.
