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.

2006 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

Sedona

  • 85,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I was driving with my 3 young children in my 2006 Kia Sedona when another driver pulled out in front of me causing me to apply the brakes, at which time I lost control of the van which nearly rolled over. I later learned that when the brakes were applied, the driver's side lower control arm completely broke due to rust which is what caused me to lose control. Thankfully, the van came to a stop but only because the wheel broke and became lodged. Had this accident happened on the freeway, there would have been serious injuries or fatalities. Corrosion on the front lower control arm was part of a recall issued in November 2013. On February 20, 2014 (before I owned the van), the van was taken to a Kia service center for service related to the recall. A rustproof coating was applied to the rear control arms and the front were visually inspected and determined to be fine. Just over a year later the part determined to be "safe, " broke from simply applying the brakes which very easily could have resulted in devastating consequences. I contacted Kia on May 22, 2015. As of June 3, 2015 (13 days since the incident) I am still awaiting a response from Kia as to what corrective action they will take. I fear for the safety of my family to ever drive this vehicle again.

My vehicle shakes badly...Kia, where I purchase my 2006 told me, it is the sub frame which causes my van to shake. The salt in Pennsylvania causes the frame of this van to rust away. I well not be able to drive it! there is no recall...this will cost me $2,000. I believe if you live... where it snows. The vehicles should be made for states which have snow.....and use salt on the roads. Why should I have to paid for this. The sub frame needs to be recall by Kia manufacturer.the mileage on my van is 63,553. Also, Kia stated that it will not pass inspection. There was a recall on lower control arms. They fixed that, but still it shakes. It's the sub frame.guest what! they inspected my van on Jan 8, 2014, . Kia, passed my van for good condition and my van was inspected after they corrected the control arms. Again, it still shakes....it is the sub frame. How did Kia pass the van for inspection. "the sub frame is still rotten". so, are they waiting for a accident to happen or someone is killed. Kia you need a recall on sub frame!

Was driving normally and suddenly left front wheel started skidding as it felt like it was turned in a direction that opposed the other front tire direction. Vehicle quickly became unstearable. Left lower control arm was found to be totally rust weakened with large rust holes and cracks.....and after part was removed by a mechanic, I could easily bend the whole control arm in half with very little effort. If this sudden failure had occurred moments earlier with my kids on the way to school and on the highway....this could have been a much worse result. As a result, I also had to replace both front tires, certain parts connecting to this control arm and had to have the vehicle realigned. The opposite control arm on the right side seems to look 'normal' with no apparent rust weakening. It seems as though the intact side has a type of coating that is intact and the failed side is missing much/most of the coating.
