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 2011 Kia Sedona received a poor rollover rating from the IIHS.

2011 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 062013

Sedona 6-cyl

  • 38,500 miles


On two occasions we were unable to shift the van out of the park position. It appeared to be stuck. The first time it happened, my husband shut the van off, and turned it back on and it fixed the problem. The second time it happened, I was able to shift it out of park, but the "ESC" light lit up on the dash board. After doing research on line, I realized this is a major problem on past Kia Sedona models and I am concerned for my safety and the safety of my children in this vehicle. I have called the dealership and am awaiting a response.
