Sedona 6-cyl

Brake noise at different stopping speeds, vibration and wobble (this is a new replacement vehicle) exact problem on the first vehicle. One dealer refused to work on brake problem at 5000 miles.

  • 4,808 miles
2005 Sedona brakes squeak when applied. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who determined that the rotors were glazed. Both front rotors were resurfaced. One week later the vehicle was taken back to the dealer because the brakes continued to make noise. This time the dealer replaced the front rotors. The noise continued and the dealer told the consumer that brake noise was normal.

Sedona 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles
Brand new van from the start brakes would shake really bad. Called them, they of course tried to blame on something else, not warranty, so I took it to my mechanic I have used for 20 years, they said take it back, get new brakes and rotors. Talked them into it with a lot of doing. Not long after that I was going down a hill and when applied brakes van sounded like a train stopping, I even had the girl from Kia service dept. On the phone when it happened the second time and she heard it through the cell phone, well, of course they couldn't find anything and wouldn't do anything. It doesn't do it all the time, maybe 3-4 times a month. But it has started shaking again, and still sounds like a train. What to do, what to do!

Warped rotors under normal driving, noise and vibration, replaced rotors with same type of rotors. After driving about 2000 miles warped rotors again. Can not get any help from Kia dealer or Kia reps.

Around 4500 miles had vibration when braking. Dealer said that it was caused by warped rotors. They were replaced. Not two months later I had the same problem. Had to pay for rotors to be machined. Same week, rotors had to be machined again. One month later same problem. Had to pay to replace the pads.

The contact stated when brake were applied the vehicle shook in front. Replaced the pads and rotors twice within a week. The rotors were warped, and need to be replaced again. Dealer said they were going to call a representative to handle the case. Manufacturer said this is not a manufacturer's defect.

The contact states shas been having problems with brakes since April or May 2005. The brakes were squeaking and the rotors were warped. The dealership told the contact that the rotors were warped from the boat where the car had been shipped. They replaced the rotors. Also, they replaced the brakes and the pads. In addition, filed some kind of clips and dusted the pads. She has had the brakes worked on or repaired a total of five-six times since April. Right now the brakes were jerking badly when she stopped. The rubber piece that goes around the window to seal the window was bad. The piece would roll up either on the outside or the inside of the window.. they ordered a different piece three times and still have not had it fixed.
