12/29/2013 - SEATTLE, WA
WE HAVE A 2005 SEDONA WHICH WE LOVE. IT'S BEEN A GREAT CAR FOR US. UNFORTUNATELY, WE HAVE HAD ONGOING ISSUES WITH IT FOR SOME TIME NOW. OUR MAIN PROBLEM AND CONCERN RIGHT NOW IS WITH THE FRONT END STRUTS AND OR ALIGNMENT. THE NOISE AND KNOCKING AT LOW SPEEDS (ESPECIALLY WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STAND-STILL) IS TROUBLESOME, BUT MORE TROUBLESOME IS THAT WE CONSTANTLY NEED TO REPLACE THE FRONT TIRES. WE ARE GOING ON OUR 4TH SET OF NEW TIRES (FOR THE FRONT ALONE) DUE TO ALIGNMENT ISSUES. NO BALANCING OR ALIGNMENT WORK HAS HELPED. AFTER HOURS OF RESEARCH ON LINE, IT SEEMS THAT THE FRONT BRAKES MAY BE UNDERSIZED CAUSING THE ROTORS TO OVER HEAT AND WARP. THE STRUTS ALSO SEEM TO HAVE A WRONG TYPE OF MOUNT SYSTEM AND HAVE TO BE REPLACED. THERE ARE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS TO BE FOUND ON THE WEB FROM PEOPLE WITH SIMILAR ISSUES. THERE IS A TSB ON THE TOPIC (CHA015) REGARDING NEW STRUT MOUNTS, BUT WE ARE NOT SURE WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT NOW.

THE PROBLEM IS GETTING WORSE AND WE FEAR THAT THERE IS A SAFETY CONCERN HERE.

SERVICE BRAKES

6/26/2013 - WAYNE, NJ
THIS PARTICULAR PROBLEM STARTS WHEN I'M ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY AND HAVE TO MAKE AN "IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED" BRAKING MANEUVER AT HIGHER SPEEDS OF 65-70MPH.(SLOWER VEHICLE IN FRONT OF YOU = PANIC STOP, EXITING TO AN OFF RAMP AND A HARD STOP) WHEN BRAKING HARD THE CARS BRAKES SOUNDS LIKE THE ABS SYSTEM CAN'T GET A GRIP SO TO SPEAK AND THE WHOLE CAR SHUDDERS.THE CAR BRAKES BUT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR WEARING SOMETHING OUT. I HAVE HAD A MECHANIC TEST DRIVE THE CAR BUT HE COULD NOT REPLICATE THE CONDITION. I HAD NEW ROTORS PUT ON TO NO AVAIL. THE CONDITION CONTINUES AS OF TODAY UNDER THOSE CONDITIONS I'VE MENTIONED. I WILL LIVE WITH THE PROBLEM. THANK-YOU

POWER TRAIN

6/25/2013 - ANTRIM, NH
I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD WHEN THE CLEAR ROAD TURNED INTO BLACK ICE GOING AROUND A CORNER, I THEN GOT PULLED INTO SNOW AND THEN SIDE SWIPED A TELEPHONE POLE THAT SENT ME INTO A BOULDER BIGGER THAN MY CAR. THE IMPACT WAS AT 30MPH AND THE AIR BAGS WERE SUPPOSED TO DEPLOY BETWEEN 7 AND 10MPH. MY HEAD WHEN INTO THE WINDSHIELD 2 TIMES AND BOUNCED OFF THE STEERING WHEEL. MY WIFE SLAMMED HER HEAD OFF THE DASH AND MY DAUGHTER HAD A SEATBELT BRUISE. THE AIR BAGS NEVER DEPLOYED AND KIA HAS A SO CALLED FIX FOR THE AIRBAGS BUT ITS STILL NOT OUT OR RECALLED YET. WHEN THE AMBULANCE SHOWED UP THEY HIT THE BLACK ICE AND ALMOST SLID INTO US. ABOUT 20 TO 30 MINS AFTER THE AMBULANCE SHOWED UP THE TOWN HAD A SALT AND SAND TRUCK COME OUT AND FIX THE CORNER. ON THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL THE EMT TOLD ME I WAS THE 5TH OR 6TH PERSON TO CRASH IN THE SAME SPOT THIS YEAR. AND THE YEAR HAD JUST BEGUN. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY THE ENGINE WAS PUSHED BACK 2 TO 3 INCHES AND I HAVE PICS AND VIDEO OF THE DAMAGE. THE AIRBAGS COULD HAVE SAVED US A LOT OF PAIN AND SUFFERING AND HUGE HOSPITAL BILLS.
