2005 Kia Sedona Owner Comments

problem #4

Jan 232006


  • 3,000 miles


The 2005 Kia Sedona I own has been plagued by numerous problems. The first of which is a brake malfunction. It was thumping when braking at high speeds then grinding when braking at low speeds. The pads have been replaced, rotors machined, then they were replaced. Also, there is a joint or strut problem B/C. when you go over a bump in a residential neighborhood it sounds creaky and as if it might snap. Also, power door locks have been serviced twice. In addition the steering wheel is very shaky. The dealer blamed that on alignment. Also, the tires need to be replaced at less than 25K and probably have needed to be replaced since 15K. This is due to the brake problem I am certain. All attempts to have these issues resolved have been blown off by the dealer -- until 11/07 when I demanded that there was indeed something wrong.
