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

My 2007 Kia Spectra stalls out every time I fill the tank. It stalls during high rate of speed and during normal low speed driving. My Kia is out of warranty, and from what I have read on other sites it would be a waste of time to have it fixed. Also I had to replaced the stop light switch under the dash. The recall was with 5 Kia models but not the Spectra.

I purchased a Kia Spectra and reported to the dealership southwest Kia that my gas pedal was sticking. I re-injured my right hand. I took the car to the dealership for inspection. But the peddle kept sticking. I also purchased a insurance that will pay your car payments when you are unable to work due to a medical condition. I filed a claim and it did not pay my car payments. Next thing I went out and my car was gone. The dealership accused me of making a false complaint. This all happen in 2009 not long before you found gas peddle sticking. Can you help me ?
