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.

2004 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 142007

(reported on)

Sedona LX 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles


My husband actually had this pos van. When he first bought it he said it ran great, he had a problem with the a/c but got it fixed. but when he moved to iowa he brought it along. First the check engine light was always on.... it never shut off. So the only KIA dealership by us in about 100 miles away. So we dropped it off and picked it up about 4 days later. The guy told us that they couldn't do anything about it because it was just some vent that didn't work or it wasn't pointed right or something... so whatever. Then we were driving back from Des Moines from a night out and we had to hit our breaks for something and our brakes f-ing FELL off!! Our brakes were on the road! So we paid to get those fixed. Then our transmission started to go out. And we tried to get it fixed since the damn thing was still under warranty. yup nope it didn't cover it because they claimed we should of got it fixed sooner... because Kia's need there transmission fluid changed every like 2500 miles or some bull. Yup so one night when my husband was driving to Walmart to get something to fix our hot water hitter the transmission died and he totaled the damn thing. Thank goo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEVER EVER EVER buy a KIA they are so poorly made and CHEAP!!!!!!
