If you can get out of it, RUN. Several months and several $$$k, I'm still working with an attorney to get out of my 2006 Sedona LX -- noisy, malfunctioning LEMON! Best of luck to you.

Sometimes I get a static shock when I touch the van and it seems to attract dust like static cling. Now this freeked me out Monday morning. I went fishing before it got light out. I hooked up the trailer and pluged in the wiring turned out the garage lights and my trailer lights were dimly light and I didn't have the van light on. I gave the coupling a kick and the lights went out. Any bodyslse get a charge from the van.
#10 of 17 2006 Sedona tailgate rattles
Apr 05, 2008 (6:12 am)
I have had consistent tailgate rattles in my 2006 Sedona with only 17K miles. The noises are heard over road bumps and vehicle turns. The vehicle has been in for warranty service several times at several dealerships. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Any suggestions?

No I did not, same issues regarding this piece of crap, now getting 28K miles, not noticeable when I'm drive slow, still can hear the noises most of the time, worse yet, I bought this 2006 van twice. To make this story more sad, will comment that still owe $17800 and 4 more years in debt to go.

I traded in two Explorers to get our 2006 and now regret every single cent of it. My wife and I are expecting and she is stressed out to the max. This van has caused pain and anguish. And after only one year I am now in negative equity at least 8-9K. At first we were not until the market viewed the Sedona as the single worst selling used van in the nation. What a lovely pickle I am in. I am now back on the phone with a Kia rep again today trying to get this rear hatch squeal crap done. It will not go away!!!
#15 of 17 The Finale. Our 2006 Kia Sedona
Mar 27, 2009 (8:07 am)
Got the final straw from Kia rep today. Our hatch noise can no longer be treated as a warranty item because it is outside the 12000 mile service warranty. They basically told me to go away, and that it is MY OPINION only that the noise is a problem and that it causes any aggravation or pain. This coming on the heels of having the 06 Sedona in the dealership 7 times for the same problem. I am done. I am happy for those who do not have these problems. The next step? I am not sure. Earphones for me and the kids while driving this noise box for the next two years.
#16 of 17 Rear gate rattle

Did you try spraying the lock with a silicon based lubricant. I used to get a rattle from the rear gate lock and all I did was spray the hell out of the the lock itself. WD-40 works but does not last as long. Try it and see if it solves your rattle problem. Again, go to home depot and ask them or find a silicon based metal lubricant. Use the attached "straw" to spray INSIDE the rear lock on both sides. This should eliminate the rattle.

Oh mygod I thought I was the only one having this problem.. I've brought it in to the dealership 5 times I was told it was the " rear latch/striker. which they've torqured to spec.. I'm good for 4-6 months then it starts up again..
