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

Nov 302004

Sedona 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50 miles


Gas mileage far below promised. The 2004 Kia Sedona LX was posted as 16-22 mpg. We are averaging 11 mpg hwy/city. It has been to the dealer twice, the second time there were parts replaced like airflow sensors. This did not correct the problem. Our dealer has worked with us well, but with gas prices the way they are, the cost to operate the vehicle is much more than advertised. I have talked to others who own the Sedona as well, some are averaging over the 20mpg, while others are like myself, 10-11 mpg.
