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.

2006 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #2

Sedona 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Kia Sedona. The contact stated that the arm rest in the middle row seats has two plastic pieces that do not meet or fit over the arm rest. While his daughter was seated in one of the middle row seats, she moved right to left and the plastic piece caused a severe laceration to her skin. He notified the dealer and the manufacturer and they stated that the seat was designed in that manner. The manufacturer provided him with reference number K1320663. The failure mileage was 4,000 and current mileage was 6,000.

Sedona 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles
During harder braking in a Kia Sedona van, the second row seat flipped forward and clobbered the driver's (mine) head. I was so startled that I had no control of the vehicle for a few seconds. Nothing was hit. This was because the second row seats flip forward to allow rear entry but they do not necessarily re-latch when putting them upright again, either from a lack of re-latching force or debris/carpet interference with the latch.
