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.

A year ago I do receive a recall letter notifying for rusty lower arms wheels to be replaced but such thing never happened. The dealer just apply more rust inhibitors but procedures was not the appropriate cure for the problem. When the vehicle is on motion a very disturbing noise came just under the wheels. See pictures they are more self explanatory just the driver side it's shown due to file limitation.

We heard a loud bang while going over a bump at the intersection of two city streets. The bang continued to be heard when hitting bumps/potholes. Mechanic found that the right front coil spring had broken. Vehicle is a 2007 Kia Sedona with no open recalls. The 2006 Kia Sedona vehicles were recalled in March 2012 with SC 095 for vehicles produced from December 20, 2005 to March 20, 2006. Our 2007 Kia Sedona was produced in September 2006 and was driven in Illinois, a heavy salt use state, until June 2014. Since the 2006 and 2007 Kia Sedonas are nearly identical vehicles, should the 2006 Kia Sedona coil spring recall be extended to 2007 Kia Sedona vehicles.

2007 Kia Sedona. At about 62,000 miles suspension was making noise. Dealer diagnosed the front sub cross member bushings as needing replacement-to the tune of $2200! this was done and it fixed the problem. At 67,000 miles a new front end noise has developed over bumps. I'm now told the control arm bushings need to be replaced and sway bar link bushings will be next. Car is maintained and used for local short trips around town. I would expect a recall for using substandard bushings.

Sedona 6-cyl

  • 158,000 miles
Mechanic was rotating tires and observed that right front coil spring was broken and left front was close to broken. Opened ticket with Kia Consumer Affairs. During my investigation, I found that there was a recall (bulletin SC-095) for 2006 model year for this specific issue. Kia stated that recall was applicable to '06 only. We live and operate the vehicle in il, one of the states listed in the recall. My assumption is that the conditions causing the issue dealt with in the original recall continued to exist in later model years. I feel that this could potentially be a significant safety issue. Had my wife had to make a sudden stop or sudden evasive maneuver, with one broken spring and another likely to break, there could possibly have been a catastrophic failure. There are likely a fairly significant number of cars still on the road with this issue.

Sedona 6-cyl

  • miles
Consumer had problems with two leased Kia Sedona and with the dealership. The consumer heard an awful rattle not long after having an oil change. It was discovered that there was no oil in the reservoir and oil was all over the vehicle. The consumer was able to get to a repair shop and the mechanic informed him there was no oil and the filter was not properly installed. The vehicle began to shimmy and shake. The dealer stated the problem was a defective cable, however the shimmy and shake returned. The check engine light illuminated. The consumer stated the second Sedona blew a fuse within the first month. Then, two months later the vehicle would not start. The dealer replaced the battery and this vehicle also rattled.
