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.

WHEN WE BOUGHT THE CAR IT WAS NOT THAT BAD , BUT GETTING WORSE, THEN I SAW A COUPLE OTHER KIA'S WITH THE SAME PROBLEM, AND THE INSIDE PLASTIC PARTS JUST SNAP IN THE COLD,BUT I ALSO KNOW OTHER OWNERS OF KIA'S AND THEY HAVE IMPROVED SIGNIFICANTLY OVER THE YEARS, MY BIGGEST GRIPE IS I'LL NEVER GET A DIME FOR A CAR THAT WAS VERY WELL MAINTAINED,AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE, BECAUSE I HAVE TO ADMIT LOVE THE FUEL MILEAGE AND THE OVERALL CAR. PLEASE HELP ME OUT SO I CAN AFFORD TO PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE.
