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.

2005 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #2

Sedona 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 6,395 miles


Every 2-5 thousand miles the rotors become warped "excessive lateral run out" per Kia the front tires wear excessively, and the vehicle does not stay aligned. All that Kia will do is replace the front rotors and pads until the warranty is out then the consumer pays. After hours of research on line the front breaks are undersized, causing the rotors to over heat and warp. The struts seem to have a wrong type of mount system and have to be replaced. Kia is doing nothing about this they state that it is driving habits. Thousands of people have complained about this, most do not know how to follow through to get anything done. Kia's final stand is that it is my driving habits. They are not taking responsibility for the safety flaw in their engineering of the front end being in adequate for the weight of the vehicle.

The day I purchased my 2005 Kia Sedona the radio stopped working. That was replaced, then the lighter went. Again the radio and then within the first three weeks the brakes and front end which has been the ongoing problems and concern to date. With numerous trips up until 9/05 and my taking it to yet another dealer 9/05-1/06 leading to it blowing out a tire and now them telling me all along of course that nothing is outside of "normal" or their fault etc. However buying this vehicle new and it sounding and like something I've never heard before (and I've driven for 20 years many types of cars new and very old!) let alone the way it shakes.. yet they always led me to believe I was nuts. They did replaced the rotors finally only after I took it to someone else who documented it needed it and I took it back with the paper work and that wasn't until August (I bought it in may) and they'd blown me off for two months. I've called Kia main office who also is making it not their problem it's a "normal" wear issue. There is no car that sounds and feels like this upon braking. Reading your site at least I know I'm not alone finally which is what *they* want you to think!
