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.

Received a recall 05V232000 back in early June for Kia Sedona. Contacted the dealer three times. They have done an inspection for the recall, but did not have the parts. Contacted the manufacturer twice, they said dealer should have parts by July 8th, 2005. Contacted them again, and were they were on a nation wide back order, and should be delivered some time in August.
