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. Notes: The 2010 Kia Sedona received a poor rollover rating from the IIHS.

2010 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 90,000 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Kia Sedona. While the vehicle was operated, it experienced unintended acceleration after the brake pedal was depressed. As a result, the vehicle crashed into a tree. The failure occurred without warning. A police report was not filed and there were no injuries. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic and repaired. Months later, the failure recurred. The contact shifted gears and the engine revved. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 90,000.

I was driving and the car in front of me slammed on their brakes, there was more than a car length between us, but when I stepped on brakes the car accelerated rather than stopped. I noticed other times the car wouldn't stop when stepped on the brakes hard. Since then I'm very cautious about driving in bad weather, or too close. Be careful of pressing on the brakes too hard!!

Sedona 6-cyl

  • 44,100 miles
Was on highway heading into construction zone, tapped brakes to disengage cruise control, cc did not disengage. Heavily pressed brakes, cc would not disengage. Vehicle is actually accelerating every time I step on brake. ABS/ESC lights come on. Ultimately able to disengage cc on the column but not before accelerating to 80+mph heading into wall of traffic merging from three to one lanes and slowing to 45mph for construction zone. 20 miles later I pull into rest area hoping to clear error lights; turned car off and back on - couldn't get van out of park. After about 100+ restarts finally able to get van into drive. Limped home, flatbedded to dealership next morning. Still no acknowledgement of issue from service department 24 hours later.
