I agree. It seems to be IMPOSSIBLE to start a new thread. I have been using computers since before I could drive (and I've been driving for 47 years), I used to run a computer business and am no stranger to difficult interfaces, but I CANNOT discover how to start a new thread. HELP was no help, and no response to emails. I did see a menu item once, but could never find it again.
On a positive note: There is some interesting info amongst the posts, but thread structure is a bit silly. Respose of site is very slow.

Dr Bob;

I don't know if this is what you are looking for but above the red bar that says "Threads in Forum..." there is a button to activate a new topic (thread)
Is this what you mean? I am not trying to be a smart a$$ just trying to help.

That's exactly what I wanted; thanks. Button does not appear in some forums. No longer contributing.

There's a few sections in which that button would not appear - what sections of the forum did you have in mind ?

Would it be possible to add a sticky thread at the top of each group that would have recall information pertaining to that groups model? I see postings of problems in the XM Sorento group that are part of a KIA recall. If a sticky was at the top of the group I would think a lot of the questions could be answered with out having to type the same information over and over in separate posts. It could include the recall number for the owner when talking to the KIA dealer and what the recall covers for the repair. My local KIA dealer tried to push an oil change on me before doing a recall, then I find out that the recall included an oil change and filter. This information can be useful for owners and save them some money instead of giving the dealership a double dip (charge) on the oil change from the owner and KIA too; where the dealer gets paid twice for the same oil change.

What does the community think of this?
If there's a positive feedback on this, we can get this passed along to the other mods/admins.

I do not think to many people view this page when you look at the time between posts. It was over 6 years since the last post before I posted about adding re-call information. If you are asking others what they think, I do not believe you are going to get many if any reply's on this thread when you look at the times that discussions have taken place here.

It might be a good idea to start a thread about this is a more popular section and see what the community has to say about it?

We've had this in the past and the sticky draws attention for some time and then its popularity wanes.

My experience is that you'll find posts directly below the informative sticky asking questions that are clearly covered in the sticky immediately above their post.

I would prefer to place a reminder promoting the search function.
