2007 Kia Sedona Problems

Updated Timing Chain Tensioner to Correct Noise on Startup

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.

2007 Kia Sedona Recalls

Hood Opens While Driving

The secondary hood latch may stick in the open position and not fully secure the hood. This could allow the hood to open while driving. Dealers will replace the secondary hood latch or clean and lubricate the latch, depending on the vehicle's location and the condition of the latch free of charge to resolve the concern.

Front Suspension Lower Control Arms Break

The front lower control arms may fracture and separate from the vehicle due to exposure to road salt and corrosion. Dealers will replace the front lower control arms or add additional corrosion protection to existing control arms as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Loss of Vehicle Control

Vehicles first sold or currently registered in areas where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because one or both front lower control arms may break due to excess corrosion. The lower control arm is part of the front suspension. If one were to break loss of vehicle control could occur, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front lower control arms and will rustproof or replace them as necessary.

2007 Kia Sedona Reviews

KIA IS NOTORIOUS IN KEEPING BLIND OWNERS OF FACTS OF FAULTY ISSUES FROM A-Z . I CAN'T COMPLAIN MUCH ABOUT MINE BUT KNOW ALL TOO WELL UNTIL IT BREAKS OR FAILS KIA WILL KEEP QUIET ON ALL ISSUES AND JUST KEEP STAMPING OUT VEHICLES . IT'S MY LAST KIA EVER . GOING BACK TO CHRYSLER I DROVE FOR 30 YEARS AND LOVED THEM .
Minor electrical issues and a weird engine noise at startup that last for 3 seconds - like a heavy engine valve train noise
