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.

The car doors lock randomly while driving, while parked, even in park with the car running--I got locked out with the car running for over 2 hours a couple of months ago. I have learned to have a window open if I exit the car while it is running or to make sure the keys are in my hands any time I exit the car. They also lock and unlock repeatedly when I am trying to unlock the doors to enter the vehicle. With so many people experiencing the same problems with this car, why is this not being addressed?

The car locks and unlocks repeatedly on its own when I'm trying to unlockthe driver and/or passenger door. The car is always stationary when I try to unlock the door(s), it will sometimes lock on its own when I'm driving. This started happening about 2 years ago.

I was driving on the interstate about 65 mph. All of sudden, the car lost all forward motion power. When I pressed the gas, the rpms increased, but the car did not get any power. The engine continued to run without problem. After stopping on the shoulder, I put the car in park and turned off the engine. After starting again, I put the car in drive, the forward power was working again and the car shifted fine. Transmission fluid was changed at 110,000 miles. Suspecting transmission, I took to a transmission specialist. I was given the following information: Error code P0750 shift solenoid; error code P0755 shift solenoid B; error code P0760 shift solenoid C; error code P0765 shift solenoid D. was given price quote to fix, but encouraged to contact Kia dealership about problem as they had seen this before on other similar Kia Spectras. Called dealership to inform them of problem. Left message, but never got a return call; and the one time I got a person, I was told that they would have someone from service call me back. Never heard from anyone. On May 16, 2015, the same thing happened, only this time turning the car off did not work and the check engine light came on. I was able to disconnect the battery and reconnect, then the car shifted again. Has anyone else had this problem" is there a recall? before I spend $2000, I want to know if Kia is avoiding my calls because they know there is problem" did internet search and have found similar complaints.
