2005 Kia Sedona Problems
A defective AC compressor clutch assembly can cause excessive noise or vibration when the air conditioning is on. Improved parts are available. Replacing the faulty clutch assembly does not necessitate replacement of the complete AC compressor or evacuation and recharging of the air conditioning system.
If the engine is excessively noisy on startup (after the engine has been off for several hours) and the noise lasts more than four or five seconds, turn off the engine and check for correct engine oil level. If the oil level is correct, the noise may be caused by the timing chain tensioner. Kia released an updated timing chain tensioner to solve this problem.
Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination. Software updates are commonly most effective on newer vehicles. Higher mileage vehicles may exhibit a similar symptom caused by a component failure. However, whenever major transmission repairs are performed the transmission software should be checked and updated as necessary.

2005 Kia Sedona Recalls
In freezing conditions, water on the throttle cable may freeze, creating resistance to movement. The cable may stick and prevent the engine from returning to idle, causing the vehicle to maintain speed or accelerate. This can occur without warning and could cause a crash. Dealers will modify a protective sleeve around the cable to fix the issue. The recall began August 15, 2005. The Kia recall number is SC-051.
On certain models equipped with alloy wheels, water may accumulate around the rear hub caps and damage the outer rear wheel bearings. The wheel bearings could fail without warning, which could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the rear hub caps and replace the rear outer bearings and/or hub assembly as needed. The recall began on June 13, 2005. The Kia recall number is SC-049.
2005 Kia Sedona Reviews
Piece of junk. I have been paying on this vehicle for two years and I have put too many replacement parts on it. The harmonic balancer came off while I was driving. These parts are heat synced on and are not suppose to just fly off while driving. The drive window motor has quit working. I am constantly replacing brakes and changing the transmission fluid.

We bought the 2005 kia sedona brand new. A week after buying it, the a/c stopped working. They 'fixed it' of course. But I gotta say, the a/c on this kia is the weakest we've ever felt. It never really blows full on cold air, but everytime we've taken it in they say it works fine. We thought we had a 100,000 mile warranty, but apparently 60,000 is 100% covered and the last 40,000 is power trai...
