I have an 06" and the same type of brake problems as the 05" I have been reading about! Replace many sets of ceramic pads, new rotors front and back and I am getting the grinding on the front and the mechanics keep putting dressing and new pads, has sanded the pads down, tryed every thing and still having problems, now I have a shaking on the right front and have not figured out what it is. I wish I had never bought this vehicle. I don't have the money or any other way to get another vehcile right now!
Anyone have any answers! I need help!

for the hesitation use seafoam in the gas.
Brakes- I put on slotted and cross drilled rotors . the only other problen I had was two calibers hang up. Make sure the proper grease on the sliding points on the calibers.

I am not sure if you are still out there... but we brought our 2010 sedona to the dealer today for routine maintenance but also to check for a clicking/knocking that we kept hearing everytime we started to slow down to a complete stop. They, of course, said that they didn't hear it... so didn't do anything. Anyone else having the issue still? Thank you!

I had the ceramic pads installed at Pep Boys. 4000+ miles later, I am pleased with the results.

I bought a 2011 Kia Sedona in March of 2011. It is now October 2011. I have over 16,000 miles already. The front brakes have now been changed for the FOURTH time. The rears have been changed twice. Yes I hear clicking/knocking when coming to a halt - I also hear it when sitting at a light with my foot on the brake. Then there's the issue of MUFFLER NOISE. And the fact that my driver's side sliding door keeps sticking - NONE of which is apparent at the dealership. The only thing apparent at the dealership is $300 per brake job. Guess what?? ADVANCE AUTO PARTS now carries 2011 Sedona brake pads! Guess who is doing her own brakes from now on?? You got it!

I have a 2010 Kia Sedona, only Problem I have had is with this clunking noise as described when at stop or slow speed coming from behind the gear shift, If any one has gotten this fixed please advise what they did! I am at 43k miles and break pads still have 40% left, Just had them checked- This clunk is driving me NUTS!

We are at about 43K too (we also have a 2010 Kia Sedona) and I posted about this clunking a while ago. It's exactly as you described. We took it to the dealer (where we bought it) but they said they couldn't hear the sound. It is definitely a CLUNK... and that is a perfect word but I also described it as a knocking sound... and it only occurs when I am slowing down or about to move again....at least that is when I notice it the most. It's been happening more and more and it really makes me nuts too!!! Anyone else having this problem?? We can't be the only ones!!

I jsut bought an 1995 acura integra LS and found out that my rotors and pads were completely shocked. The dealer wanted to charge me $500 for all 4 rotors and pads.
I came across areion brakes ....have any of you heard of them?
They shipped me the exact rotors and pads for $212 all in. Have you ever heard of them?

I have been a race car driver for 20 years and it seems to me the brakes on my 06 Sedona will start to apply by them selves without touching the brake pedal. After a few miles I will start to feel a vibration like a warped rotor then the vecicle will start to slow down and I need to increase the speed. If I stop the brakes will lock and I need a lot of accelleration to unstick them. Then will get very hot. Sometime on long trip I have to stop and let them cool down and I can smell the hot brake pads. It seems maybe there is something wrong with the ABS or the ESPE causing the brakes to apply by them selves. I have done the usual rotor and pads replacement and lubricated the sliding surfaces with no help. Maybe the solution would be to take the fuse out of the ABS circuit but this may not be a safe solution. I am affraid this problem could cause an accident and should be reported to the DOT or whoever does recalls.
