Happy to ear that I may have help you.
Concerning the Odyssey... Before this Kia I was driving a Odyssey 2004 (and before that an Accord for 11yrs and I put 300K+ miles on it so I was a fan of Honda products) and this product (Odyssey) has his share of problems too. Awful squeak from the dashboard after 2 years. At 50K miles their was a lot of clunks coming from the front suspension. My sister purchased the same product (Odyssey 2004) and it unbelievable the number of problems (some quite serious) she experienced with it (to a point that she would never buy an Honda anymore)
Finally in my case the price difference was much more than 50$/months (for a comparable equipped car (my Sedona is fully loaded w leather) it was more
My opinion is that the Kia Sedona is a good van and a good value but unfortunately some detail would need more attention Now that the squeaking noise is gone I pretty happy with my choice and I am 200$ richer every month

Ask your dealer to check the TSB's for the pull. There were some vans with
a similar problem. Had to do with a misssligned plate above the spring or something similar to that.

My 05 Sedona makes a creaking sound when shifting from P to R or P to D. It seems to be coming from the right front wheel area. Any help out there?

I'm currently having the same problem. I have an 04 Sedona, and there is some clicking or thumping noise on the front passenger side. It gets faster as I accelerate. I recently had my tires rotated, but I don't know if that did anything. I've driven ~2000 miles since having the tires rotated, but have only noticed the problem in the past 500 miles or less. Unfortunately my van is not under warranty. (~150,000 miles) please let me know what they say was the problem so that I can move forward with my issue with some type of knowledge. Thanx!

Do not drive the vehicle until you have the front coupling or universal checked that connects drivetrain from transmission to both front axeles.You probably need new boots to cover the "knuckle".Not really a tremendous expense,get it done before you have to pay a wrecker for transport,A good tranny repair,auto dealer,even a mienike shop can do it .My guess parts (2 universals 2 boots ,and labor 2hrs) 385 bucks,tell me how you make out,shalome vince17

Did you ever get this addressed? I bought a used 05 Sedona 6 months ago. I am having this same issue. Creaking sound from front right when shifting into R from P and from R to D.
#80 of 84 2010 Sedona - Clicking Sound When Brake is Applied
Dec 27, 2010 (6:36 pm)
When pressing the brake pedal in our 2010 Sedona when the vehicle is in Park, Drive or Neutral, a clicking sound is coming from the area under/around the gear shifter. When in Drive, the clicking sound only occurs when the vehicle is stopped or when the vehicle slows to a near stop (i.e. when coming to stop for a traffic signal/stop sign, etc.). The clicking sound does not occur when the vehicle is in Reverse (and the brakes are applied). Has anyone experienced this issue with a Sedona? If so, what was the resolution/cause? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

I had the same question and asked a mechanic. When you depress the brake or lift off the brake, a switch or something activates in the shifter area. If it is clicking constantly, or even more than once, there may be a malfunction, but if it just makes the sound once, it is a design issue in Sedonas. I guess they haven't changed that part of the design because mine is an '05.

Just bought a 2010 Sedona and the tpms was on said they would fix it. Four times they have tried and now the tire pressure light is on also. They will try again .
