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.

We have a new 2008 Kia Sportage. The TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) comes on intermittently, four times in 10,000 miles. We have had to take the car back to the dealer on two occasions to have the light turned off. It went off by itself on the other two occasions. The dealer says the TPMS system is new and we should not worry about it. They also stated it happens frequently on other models, not just our vehicle. I believe this could be a safety hazard and should be investigated. How are we supposed to now if we really have low tire pressure?
