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.

2002 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

Sedona 6-cyl

One of the main concerns/failure is a front end bobbling noise when driving on uneven pavement. The dealer states they know of the problem but they don't know how to fix it. Originally they replaced the front struts and 2 engine mounts as these were cracked. The noise is still there and my dealer is at a loss on how to fix it. under Kia Sedona front struts is a forum devoted to people who are having this front end bobbling noise. There are about 5000 hits on this forum and each one of the car owners has been told Kia knows of the problem but they don't know how to fix it. This problem is happening on all Sedonas from 2001 to present.

Loose front suspension. Failure has not happened, yet. Worried that the noises coming from the front of my vehicle will cause a failure on the road. Kia is aware of the problem but is reluctant to repair it. They know that all Sedonas have this problem but as yet to come to grips with it.

Front end suspension was tight when new. Now the front end makes sounds as if something is loose and about to fall off or break. Dealer said it was normal! other 2002 Kia Sedona's don't have that feeling in the suspension. I have read that other's have had their suspensions fixed by changing components such as struts, bushing, seals, etc. Kia knows something is wrong with the 2002's because test drives show the 2003's don't have that sound of shacking front end.
