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 air bag light in my 2007 Kia Sportage keeps coming on for no reason. I had this problem occur three (3) times this year twice on the driver's side and once one the passenger's side. The dealership keeps saying you have to sit in the seat a certain way so the light won't come on and recognize your weight. I am over 200 lbs. So I don't understand how the seat does not recognize I am seating in it. I believe there is a fault with the air bag system. I have read about air bag light problems in other Kia models. Please investigate this problem before someone is injured or killed when the air bag does not deploy in a crash because of a faulty air bag system.
