Where to check for TSBs?

    I have no problem having oil changes done by a non-Kia/Hyundai dealer, but I want to have routine maintenance done at a dealer if a new TSB applies to my Stinger. Is there a place where I can look to find applicable TSBs when I want to take the car in for an oil change?

    Your Kia owners page should list TSB announcements. {{mctrl.meta.metaTitle}} (although safety recalls and campaigns show "0" on my account page; possibly because I've already done the wire harness, and the transmission logic check has officially been given "wait" status, twice, because I have opted to not do it yet; since I have no issues, "if it ain't broke, don't mess with it").

    Thanks, Merlin. I have done all recommended TSBs and my owner's page shows nothing. However, I just discovered this page:
    Information on Kia Recalls | Kia Owners
    Do you know if a TSB that is not classified as a "safety recall" would be listed there?

    I don't know. But it does say "SAFETY RECALLS", so I am guessing not. Between the owners page alerts and this VIN search page, we should be covered.

    Thanks, eljay, but no. The NTSB entry is devoid of TSBs that Kia issued for my Stinger (and that have been carried out). I guess we'll just need to see how future TSBs are publicized.

    I'm curious, were there issues that weren't listed in NHTSA's 10 pages of TSBs and pit stops? What other problem did you have that wasn't listed? I want to make sure that I have them check everything during my next service.

    [Changes made due to my distraction: I didn't post NTSB info, but rather NHTSA.]

    NHTSA is not NTSB, for the benefit of those that might go looking for info. The TSB info referenced here is a Technical Service Bulletin, something issues by the manufacturer to inform consumers (and service providers) of issues.

    NTSB is a commercial transport accident investigation bureau and does not concern themselves with safety of private passenger vehicles.
