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

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.
