We have had the same problem as well. It started with the engine sounding like it shifted, then the check engine light blinking on and off and then it died in the middle of the highway. We had it towed to the garage and they have been working on it. They gave it a full tune up, replaced the throttle body and now have to tow it to a Kia Dealership to have the computer reprogrammed. This is a known issue with Kia and their software needed to be updated. Kia is the only ones that can reprogram it. All and all it is costing me $1700 to get the problem fixed.

I own a 2006 Sedona and have 46000 miles in it. I have replaced headlights 3 times twice on the drivers side & once on the passenger side. Now it is the turn signal. The dash lights are also like a carnival. The TPS light goes on and off with no apparent reason. Sometimes the individual tire lights illuminate and then go off again with no apparent reason. Tire pressures are fine. I have had the check engine light go on and then off as well.
Another strange event is the frequency of tire replacement, I now need to replace tires for the 3rd time in 46000 miles. I only drive on paved roads and this has never happened before.
I no longer trust the dealer to truthfully inform me of the problems with this car. There was never a discussion by the service personnel about my concerns. The lights were replace at my cost and there was no warranty replacement/adjustment for the tires. I was made to feel that it is my fault for the problems. After owning GM, Ford, Chrysler & Nissan vehicles, I feel that the problems with this vehicle are not caused by my driving.
Now that I found this message board, I see that my problems are definitely a manufacturing problem and I wish they would be addressed by KIA.
