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.

2007 Kia Spectra Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 302009


  • 13,000 miles


We own a 2007 Spectra with 13,000 miles, bought new in July 2007. We attempted to use the air conditioner June 2009 and it blew hot air. When taken to the dealer we were told, " the screws and bolts which holds the A/C hose on had come loose from hitting bumps because that's what happens when you drive", so the freon leaked out. They refused to fix it under warranty because, "even though it is a problem with Kia's they didn't have to replace any parts". I contacted the Kia customer service toll free number who stood by the dealer and dismissed my concern. They tightened the hose and replace the freon. We were forced to pay even refusing my grandfather the senior discount promised to him.
