Value Writeup

With more standard equipment than rival vans, the Kia Sedona makes a strong appeal to value for the money. The Sedona comes in several thousand dollars cheaper than a similarly equipped Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna and includes a more powerful engine. The Sedona is, like many in the minivan segment, safety-conscious; it comes with a full roster of safety equipment and top crash-test scores as well as being named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS.


Model News

The Kia Sedona carries on into 2012 unchanged.


Model Highlights

The 2012 Kia Sedona is powered by a 271-horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic manual control.

The Sedona's interior configuration really makes the most of the available space, with three rows of seating and space for up to seven occupants. Second-row captain's chairs are removable and the 60/40-split third-row seat folds fully into the floor to make available a flat cargo area. A 50/50-split removable third-row seat completes the seating for seven. The Sedona comes with sliding doors on both sides.

The Sedona offers good acceleration, even with a full load, thanks to the torquey character of the V6 engine. Properly equipped, the Sedona can tow up to 3,500 lbs. A 4-wheel independent suspension employs MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link design in back, with stabilizer bars front and back, so it handles surprisingly well.

Driver and passenger front air bags are standard, as in most cars, but so are side-impact airbags and front and rear-occupant curtain airbags. Anti-lock brakes, stability control, traction control and tire pressure monitors are also standard equipment.

LX models come with 3-zone air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry and power windows--including one in the sliding door. The EX loads on many additional features, including a roof rack, fog lamps, power-adjustable seats, adjustable pedals and a trip computer. Both models include an MP3-compatible CD sound system that also includes a USB port and Bluetooth.

Leather seat trim, heated seats and adjustable pedals are optional on the EX. The Premium Entertainment Package, a $1,500 option, adds 7.1 surround sound, Infinity speakers and a DVD video system. A navigation system is available as well.

Summary
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Kia Sedona vehicles manufactured from June 15, 2005, through April 04, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the secondary hood latch may bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed.

Consequence
If the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Kia will notify owners and 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. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on July 27, 2016. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall number is SC134.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
