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

Sedona 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I have had this vehicle since February 2004. Since I purchased it, I have had to replace the headlights about every three months. They do not go out at the same time. One goes, then several weeks later the other goes. I have taken to replacing them both at the same time, since I know they will both go out within a few weeks of each other.

Sedona 4WD 6-cyl

  • 21,000 miles
At less than 21K miles a low beam headlight burned out. We don't use them for drl. This seems odd and a forum on Kia sorento's shows the same concern. After buying new bulbs I find it takes a professional mechanic to install them...the dealer charges $18/bulb for labor only. This sounds like a scam by the manufacturer. This is for a sorento which your database does not allow for an option to choose from. For misfire problem I filed before this I selected Sedona instead to get my claim through. 8jb
