#1 of 86 sedona 2.9 LS, 2007 model, i need your help and advise
Nov 28, 2007 (12:17 pm)
hi, i have an 07 sedona since we had it its really noisy tappit noise and worse when cold. its like a transit van is this normal?.
also 3 weeks ago we went to over take and loss of power, check engine light came on and it was running a bit rough for a while. we went to our local dealer here in england and he said it was dodgy fuel. 2 weeks ago the same thing so this time we went to another dealer and they couldnt find anything on the machine. got the car back then went to overtake on the motorway and oh my gosh it happend again, loss of power, engine check light on and running really badly. this could have caused a serious accident we were lucky. so back to the garage and the mechinic is using it and as yet not found a fault on driving it or on the machine and it has behaved well for them, any ideas?.
also since the first check light came on 3 weeks ago when starting it up now and going through the gears it jerks its hard to emplain but can anybody help?.
we have told them we dont want the car back until they find the fault.
i have told them if nothing comes up on the mchine to take parts of the engine off and manually check but they have to get permission off kia here in england for that.
oh and any cure yet for the electric doors that play up?.
any help would be great.
#2 of 86 SAME problems here!
Nov 30, 2007 (1:49 pm)
Same exact issue we're having with our 06 van. I was told point blank there was no fix for it. Oh sure at first we were told the fuel, then this and that was the problem. We had the van in the shop 7 times and now have a lawyer for a lemon law. Don't mess around- the lose of power is a problem.
Our locks also went off and on by themselves along with the lights flashing. Let's see what other problems- the horn doesn't work, the window gaskets are broken, the lights on the dash don't work... the car is a peice of crap.
Bottom line, we were told it's a computer problem and no fix available.
Guess where my van is today? In the shop, legally they had one more chance to fix it. Reguardless, we're suing. I'm done with kia and the games.

Well, I found the answer to one of my problems that has made me wonder for some time on my 06 Sedona LX. There would be a knocking sound coming from behind the glove box when I would turn off the van, like 5 or 6 knocks and then stop. Turns out it is an actuator that controls a HVAC door and I don't know if it working properly but tomorrow I am going to the dealer to have them fix it. Just thought I would let you all know.
#5 of 86 steering wheel whine
Nov 13, 2007 (8:24 pm)
Don't know if others have experienced this but I get a slight whine coming from the steering wheel column. It is only there after the a/c has been running for a while and sounds like rubber rubbing against each other. Also you can only hear it when you turn the wheel, not all the time. I am sure it has to do with heat and something expanding just a little to much, not a big issue but it does annoy me. I will let you know what the fix is when I know.

Did you ever get the issue with the knocking sound from behind the glove box resolved? I'm taking my 2006 Sedona in tomorrow for the same issue.
Dec 19, 2007 (5:38 pm)
I'm sorry I have not. I just had business trips come up and this and that, newborn baby and what not and have not had time to leave it over there for them to check it out. It does not seems to affect anything that I can tell. Please let me know what they say and or do.

Has anyone had or has a problem with some nasty squeaking coming from the rear of van? I have a 07 Entourage bought in 6 / 06. The plate at bottom of drivers door says it was built by Kia. Do you have a simple solution? I have had no problem of wind noise coming from sliding doors, ( don't have the cross rails), or having power sliding door malfunctions ( as to the Entourage forum). Other than the squeaking I'm very pleased. I got a little over 24,000 miles on it.
#9 of 86 rattle or clacking sound from the rear
Dec 24, 2007 (11:29 am)
On my 06 Sedona I had a rattle from the rear door and it was from the lock, or where the lock met the door frame on the rear door. I took WD 40 and sprayed the lock on the door itself, not the key hole, inside the lock and all around and no more rattle. Hope this helps.

I have an 06 Sedona with 17,600 miles and have experienced the same sound. Sometimes it sounds like the speedometer has a dry bearing only above 70 MPH. The problem is intermitten and is becoming less frequent almost to the point of non existence, would have the dealer look at it but I'm sure the problem wouldn't show itself during their analysis, I'm sure.
