Kia Sedona ProblemsStarting difficulty due to defective anti-theft control module
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.
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.

Kia Sedona RecallsHood 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.
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.
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.
