#2 of 1373 Out of park

This is my first post. I have a difficult with my Sedona. When I am parked at my house facing uphill it is sometimes difficult to move from Park to Reverse. Does anybody else havbe this problem? What is the answer?

This is a common issue on all transmissions. When you park on a hill apply the parking brake before you put the vehicle in park. this way the weight of the vehicle is on the brake rather than the transmission. this will solve the issue

I simply have a tough time moving the gear shift from park down to drive smoothly. I can rarely bring it straight down in one movement. Usually it goes past to 1 and then I have to push it back up, and I usually miss drive again and have to push it back down again. My thumb is permanently sore from the pressure of pushing the button in and yanking the gear shift up or down.

I had problems hitting the drive first time around too. After a year with the van either I, or it, adjusted and have no problems anymore.
#6 of 1373 ODD NOISES
Sep 28, 2002 (9:35 am)
MY 2002 KIA SEDONA PRODUCES AN ODD NOISE LIKE A VIDEO GAME STARTING UP. IT COMES FROM THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE OF CAR AND IS PRODUCED AT RANDOM INTERVALS. THERE IS NO EFFECT ON PERFORMANCE THAT I HAVE OBSERVED. UNFORTUNATELY, I WAS NOT ABLE TO REPRODUCE THIS WITH DEALER. ALSO WE HAVE ALREADY HAD THE BLOWER FAN REPLACED BECAUSE OF VERY LOUD VIBRATIONS IN THE A/C SYSTEM.

I was led to believe by my salesman and the sales manager that the second row bench seat and the third row split bench seats on my 2002 LX were interchangeable. I wanted to move the 3rd row to the 2nd row position and leave out the bench entirely. This cannot be done. The locking rails are different widths. The sales manager says he will "work something out" with me but the only solution I can see is to exchange the 2nd row bench for two captain chair buckets. I will let you all know what happens.
#8 of 1373 Bench seats in 2nd row of LX?

JRush, I've got an LX also. If you look at the chair anchors in the 2nd row, I do not believe they are appropriately spaced to support two captains chairs. Although there are 4 anchors, I believe they are spaced so that you can move the bench to be flush on one side or the other ... I don't think they support buckets. Please let me know.
#9 of 1373 2nd Row Seats
Oct 14, 2002 (4:28 am)
I returned to the Dealership and talked to the sales manager regarding the switching of the 2nd and 3rd row seats. He admitted that both he and my salesman had agreed that these seats were interchangeable which they are not. The sales manager said that he would try to have the second row bench traded in for two captains chairs at no cost to me. Evidently the seat anchors will accept the captain chairs. It would seem that having separate designs for 2nd row bench seat anchors and captains chairs in the LX & EX would not be a cost effective design by KIA. I will let you know how things work out.

I am shopping for minivan. Just lost faith in Odyssey. Does anyone experience any probelms with this Sedona rather the seating, like transmission, etc?
