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.

I own a 1998 Kia Sportage 4WD. I have access to alldata.com. I have recently performed some engine work to my vehicle and came across a recall that caused me some concern. Number: KT2006050901 is listed as a possible concern for "certain 1996 - 2002 Sportage models."I would like to know what makes a particular vehicle one that is marked "for concern." The recall states the exact issue that I am facing with my vehicle. This condition is being exhibited at this time. The local Kia dealership has informed me that my vehicle is not one that I sto be serviced under this recall even though it is exhibiting what the recall information outlines. Why, would you please, is my vehicle not one that should be a candidate for this safety recall? I have a leak from the top of the tank. A dealership in nashville says that from all that they understand, my vehicle should be inspected/repaired for this recall concern.
