#39 of 86 Front Engine Noises?
Aug 26, 2008 (10:15 am)
I just bought a 2003 Kia Sedona! It is making a noise on the front Passanger side of the van. It is coming from the engine compartment. It get s louder with excelleration. It goes away when you get to about 70mph. I am thinking that it is a transmission problem? Has anyone had this experience? I would like to get it fixed before my extended warranty runs out. I just bought the KIA and my bank is holding the check until the dealership fixes it! Wow what a loan officer I have! Shes great!Anyone that could nelp me, it would be appreciated! Thanks jay!

Have a look at your luggage rack on top of the van .Reposition the support bars if they are adjustable ,perhaps this will help
#42 of 86 Front end Crunching, squeeking noises over bumps
Oct 25, 2008 (12:40 pm)
I have a 2006 Sedona EX. First off after the experience with my 04 i LOVE this car and this is the first time I had any concerns with it. In the past 2 weeks my car sounded like it had aged 60 years. When i would first start out of a parking spot, run over a dip in the road, turned into my driveway that is on an up hill or hit unevn payment the car made loud, crunching metal noises especially on the left front side. I looked in all the forums and online and didn't find anything much (reason why i am posting this) on the 06 Sedona having this problem but had an idea that it might be the bushings on the front end. I took the car in today to the dealer and found out that the "cradle bushings" as the dealer called it, or sway bar bushings are known to wear abnomally on the 06. I was happy again that my dealer was aware of the issue and they took care of it under warranty (45000 miles on car) for me! After bad dealings with the dealer i bought both my cars from I am so happy i have finally found one that is about a half hour away from me that knows what is going on.

WOw finally I found someone with the same problem, I started with the same problem over a year ago and they have changed the struts, strut mount, sway bar and bushings, nothing has changed except they have thrown my allignment out of wack and now my tires need replacing. I had 22000 miles when it started now I have 38000 on my 2006 sedona, as a matter of fact it is going to the dealer today to check the sub frame bushings now! What a mess. Kia is rude and doesn't care about the problem.
It is funny cause I had it in the shop at least 5 times and they kept saying there was no noise and I was imagining it. So We saw that Sorentos had the great rebate so we went to the same dealer to trade in our van, because of the noise, and the same dealer test drove it and told us that my van had a horrible noise and I would have to get it fixed before they would trade it. I took it to service and told them that the salesman could hear the noise and then they told me that there is no noise and no problem with my van. UGH!!! It makes so much noise when I turn it or hit a bump!! HELP

All you have mentioned are know problems with the 06 Sedona. Let me know how you make out today. I have seen stuff on the Sub Frame before.
#45 of 86 Chirping, metal scraping noise
Nov 13, 2008 (10:26 am)
I have an 06EX with 46,000 miles - In the past week i have been hearing a chirping, metal craping noise coming from the right rear of the car when i was making a right hand turn or as the week progressed driving straight in light to light traffic. The noise would stop if i put on my brakes. My guess was it was time for new pads or that a pad had slipped. Come to find out the pad had slipped on the right rear and got caught in the caliper. I got lucky that no damage was done to either the caliper or pad and they were able to reseat the pad back into position. I was surprised when I was told i still had 80% of the pad left and it was in excellent shape. I have already had the rotors and pads replaced on the front at 30,000 since they tend to wear faster. I was in and out of the dealer in an hour. I am so lucky to have found a good one!

We bought a used 08 with just over 22,000 in December. We now have almost 24,000 miles. It's becoming a rattle trap. The left rear, when my kids are all climbing out of the van, you can hear a metallic creak or pop from what sounds like the wheel. When turning right, the harder you turn and the faster you're going when you turn, you hear what sounds like a rubbing sound. Doesn't happen turning left. Then there are a few assorted rattles when driving. But, for the price, I can't complain. It is what it is. The engine is strong, interior amenities are not too bad (LX), and it's a nice looking van.
#47 of 86 The rear Squealing/Screeching is back
Mar 27, 2009 (6:04 am)
Our 2006 Sedona Van is making the rear hatch squeak/squeel noise again. We have had it at the dealership 7 times for the noise. KIA had a rep from Chicago out to see it last year and put in new clips under the hatch and back panelling..We have had a rental 3 times through the dealership. No fix. They have taken the hatch apart each time, put padding in it, tightened the hatch etc...It only has 28000 on it and sounds like a box of rocks. SUGGESTIONS? We have tried lubricant etc...It comes back within a few weeks. My wife and I are going to explode. We have a mile of paperwork over this vehicle, and you cannot make a long trip in it without blowing your own head off over the squeak.

Check out my latest post...does the squeak sound familiar? I cant take a long trip with my family without going nuts or wanting to smash the van into a wall. Its the back panel, hatch area and they still cannot fix it. I have had a rental three times through the dealer to fix the problem.
