Summary of Complaint

3/29/2016...MY 2005 KIA SEDONA HAS STEERING PROBLEMS. THE STEERING WHEEL IS TIGHT OR STIFF AND OFTEN DIFFICULT TO STEER ESPECIALLY IN MAKING RIGHT TURNS. MY MECHANIC EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM THIS MORNING WHEN DRIVING IT AND SAID IT IS THE STEERING COUPLER. WHEN HE CONTACTED A LOCAL KIA DEALERSHIP THEIR PARTS DEPARTMENT TOLD HIM THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON THIS ITEM. HOWEVER, IT SEEMS WHEN I CALLED TO ARRANGE AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE THE RECALL ADDRESSED, I LEARNED THAT THERE IS NO OPEN RECALL ON MY VEHICLE AT THIS TIME BUT THAT THERE HAD BEEN A RECALL BACK IN 2005 ON THE STEERING COUPLER AND WORK HAD BEEN DONE. HOWEVER, I DIDN'T PURCHASE THE VAN UNTIL 2007 AND WAS UNAWARE OF THAT RECALL. I AM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS STEERING PROBLEM THAT IS OCCURRING NOW IN MY KIA SEDONA VAN AND THAT IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED AGAIN BY KIA AND BELIEVE THAT OTHER OWNERS MAY BE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEMS IN STEERING THEIR VANS AS I AM. THE STEERING COUPLER NEEDS TO BE RECALLED AGAIN.

Summary of Complaint

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. *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY KIA SEDONA STARTS WHEN IT WANTS TO. I HAVE POWER TO THE DASH LIGHTS, RADIO, AND OTHER ELECTRONICS. THE COMPANY HAS KNOWN ABOUT THIS ISSUE SINCE THE 2002 VERSION AND WITH HIGH MILES. IT HAS TO DEAL WITH THE "AN ISSUE WITH THE FACTORY VEHICLE IMMOBILIZER CONTROL MODULE CAN CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO THINK IT IS BEING STOLEN. THIS WILL IMMEDIATELY DISALLOW THE VEHICLE FROM STARTING.". WHILE THIS IS GOOD MOST OF THE TIME, IT ISN'T GOOD SINCE IT DOESN'T SET OFF THE "ENGINE LIGHT" SO MECHANICS CAN READ THE COMPUTER. I HAVE BEEN WITHOUT MY VEHICLE FOR A MONTH AND MISSED NUMEROUS DAYS OF WORK DUE TO THIS ISSUE. THE MECHANICS THAT ATTEMPT TO WORK ON MY VEHICLE, CAN NOT GET IT TO DUPLICATE THE "NOT STARTING", IT WILL START EVERY TIME FOR THEM. MAKING ME FEEL LIKE AN IDIOT. THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR TWO MONTHS AND IT DRAINING MY FINANCES. I DID SOME RESEARCH OF MY OWN AND DISCOVERED THAT ON WWW.REPAIRPAL.COM HAS MANY WHO HAVE THE SAME ISSUES. KIA WANTS ME TO TAKE THE VEHICLE TO THE NEAREST KIA DEALER TO HAVE IT CHECKED OUT. THE NEAREST DEALER IS 6 HRS AWAY AND THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT IT WOULD MAKE IT THERE. I COULDN'T EVEN DRIVE IT 2 HRS WITH OUT AN ISSUE. I FEEL SINCE THEY KNEW THERE WAS AN ONGOING ISSUE WITH THIS MODULE ON THIS VEHICLE, THEY SHOULD HAVE TO REPLACE IT AND MAKE COMPENSATION FOR THE CUSTOMER.

Summary of Complaint

FUEL TANK LEAKS DUE TO CORROSION NEAR FILLER TUBE. THIS IS A SIMULAR PROBLEM TO THE FUEL TANK CORROSION EXPERIENCED BY 2006-ON KIA SPORTAGES. DESCRIPTION: FUEL WILL LEAK FROM THE TANK WHEN THE TANK IS FULL DUE TO RUST/CORROSION OF THE TANK NEAR THE FILLER TUBE. THE VEHICLE IS OPERATED/OWNED IN MICHIGAN, AN AREA THAT USES LARGE AMOUNTS OF ROAD SALT DURING THE WINTER MONTHS. FUEL LEAKAGE IS POSING A POTENTIAL FIRE/EXPLOSION RISK AS FUEL VAPORS FROM THE LEAKAGE MAY BE IGNITED. FUEL LEAKAGE OCCURS BOTH WHEN THE VEHICLE IS STATIONARY AND IN MOTION. IF THE VEHICLE IS PARKED IN A CLOSED GARAGE THE VAPORS CAN ACCUMULATE, ELEVATING THE RISK FOR FIRE/EXPLOSION. (SIMULARLY THE REAR COOLANT LINES RUST THROUGH AS WELL DUE TO ROAD SALT, WHICH IS A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH THE KIA SEDONA)

Summary of Complaint

WAS LEAVING OUR LOCAL WALMART ; AND WHEN ALMOST TO THE INTERSECTION; FELT THE CAR WHEEL WOBBLE LIKE I GOT A FLAT TIRE. SO I STOPPED AND GOT OUT AND LOOKED; DIDN'T SEE ANY FLATS ; STARTED TO GO AND A THUNK ; AND THEN I COULDN'T MOVE; BOTH FRONT TIRES WERE POINTING IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED HOME; AND HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO LOOK AND SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER. I SURE AM GLAD I WASN'T GOING DOWN THE INTERSTATE AT THAT TIME; IS WHERE I WAS GOING . *TR
