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.

The sliding door opens while driving. Some of our groceries flew out and just missed a man waiting for the bus. This along with latching problems and auto door opening issuies. Have replaced many parts and spent many dollars trying to fix. I was told the problems were because I live on a gravel road and dust is caking on the motors. I spent 370 dollars today to get the door just to stay latched!!! I was told to spray water into my door once a week and once a month to take the door apart and spray water and re grease. Both sides have the same issue. Why has this not been a recall. If my kid was in the car and fell out heads would roll. If my groceries had hit the man waiting for the bus I would have been sued. I went on line to see if other owners had similar issues and there was so many that I was shocked. Some days we can't open our auto sliding doors and have to go manual. Some of those times it does not latch so we use rope on the door handles to keep it from opening. How can this be safe"?"

We have had several problems with this vehicle. We just replaced both the rear and front sub bushings. Our mechanic said this problem should have never occurred on a vehicle this young. We only have one sliding door that functions right now. The driver side sliding door does not work unless you physically pull it open and shut. I have been reading the same complaints from several 2007 Kia owners. Why has there been no recall issued?

Sedona 6-cyl

  • 64,000 miles
For 4 years now, the sliding doors on my family van (2007 Kia Sedona) have been popping open while driving. This can happen when I simply press the gas, hit a very minor bump, or sometimes doesn't appear to have a cause. The overhead lights all come on, the door open chime begins to ding. I've taken this to Kia almost a dozen times to no resolve. And now, the problem continues and though it's been recurring for 4 years now, they want to charge me for out of warranty service.
