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.

Wife was driving hit road debris and the wheel split into to pieces. The inner rim separated from the outer rim. Wheel immediately went flat, wife pulled over thinking that the tire had gone flat, but upon inspection it was discovered that the wheel has split in two.

The contact owns a 2014 Kia Soul. While driving 15 mph, the vehicle started pulling to the left as the driver side tire made an abnormal noise. The contact lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree. The air bags failed to deploy. The vehicle was inoperable. The contact did not sustain any injuries and did not file a police report. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign numbers: 15V123000 (vehicle speed control) and 14V332000 (steering). The vehicle was towed to the dealer, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 27,000.

This was a rental car, the accident occurred resulting from driver error in a dark rural area, sharp S curve and ran off the road into a guardrail and over a slight ditch, then into a fence. Driver was taken to the hospital by ambulance, the front seat passenger hit head on windshield, cracked windshield, and no airbag deployment for either of the front seat passengers. Air bag light was on as noted in police report. Checked for any open recalls for this VIN, however, 2012 Kia Soul had recalls for faulty airbags. Interesting.
