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.

Car hesitates when accelerating at an intersection leaving you temporarily without power. Dealer acknowledges the problem, but says it is within specs and there is no factory fix.

I purchased a 2015 Kia Soul on April 11, 2015 from paramount Kia of asheville nc and only recently found out that it had an outstanding safety recall(#nhtca-15V123 or SC116) prior to my purchase. Kia motors had notified its dealers on March 19, 2015 that they had been issued a repair procedure for this recall which was to be completed prior to sale of said vehicles. The letter states "it is illegal to sell a vehicle with an outstanding safety recall" but this dealer sold this to me anyway with regard for my safety. I believe that from the lack of concern I received from the dealer when I contacted them about it that this must be a common practice on their part.

From the date of purchase until present the vehicle has a lag in acceleration when automatic transmission shifts from first to second gear. The lag causes a dangerous condition when pulling out. Took it back to the dealer 2 times, and each time was told there was nothing they could do until a engine light came on.
