You are in the Kia Sedona
What is this discussion about?
#796 of 999 Just test drove the 2007 SWB Sedona
Dec 02, 2006 (5:09 pm)
It handled pretty well and my wife loved that is wasn't as big as the whale.
I knew more about the car than the salesmen..(all of them didn't even now it existed. This was in Allentown,pa.
I was sold on the car before this:
It is a 2+2+3.. not a 2+3+2 like overseas.
I wanted one fully loaded.
The new SWB does not come with power sliding doors or rear hatch, no leather, no climate control.. etc. Just base... as in the name. The dealer gave me a brochure also and there is no options for it.
So basically its just shorter base minivan.. no perks.
They will check with the KIA rep. and see if it will be offered with any options, but the brochure looks like it will not.
And all I wanted was a SWB with all power options, not the whale. So back to the drawing board.

Yeah, the rpms came down to about 1800 after a few seconds. It just seems a little odd.
Thanks for the reply,

Mine does the same thing. I also get a loud resonance (from the exhaust system?)that quits after a few seconds.Doesn`t seem to hurt anything.

#800 of 999 Black on the sides
Dec 16, 2006 (2:07 pm)
I always had dark colored vehicles and were hard to keep clean. Now i have the silver sedona and I get black spots and black dust on the sides mostly behind the rear wheels. I thought after the black crap (that they put on the tires when I bought it) would wear off I wouldn't have the problem. I also noticed they used a lot of undercoating underneath and when I idle for a while I get a little burning smell. So I'm thinking maybe some of the under coating that got on exhaust pipes, etc. burns off and is getting on the lower body panels that are plastic. I don't get it on the rear of the van. I have waxed it 2 times and it seems like the plastic gets static cling and the dust is sticking. Any body else took notice to this? THANKS.

Me too, I thought it was from the shiney crap the dealer put on the tires. but i beleive it is from disc brake dust. I added mud flaps, and it's not as bad as it was. I only have 700 miles on the new van so I'll have to wait to see if this black dust reappears. I love this van!

I also put mud flaps on and I have 1800 on it.
Most of your braking is done with the front brakes so I would think if that was brake dust it would be on the side behind the front wheel and also on the wheel cover. When I was it I don't the dust coming off the front wheels.

I went to the Obrien hyundai Dealership in Ft Myers, FL said they could
only program a maximum of 2 key fobs to my 2007 van. I'm pretty sure that I read
on the HMAservice website that 4 can be programmed to each car. Anybody know what can be done?
