CARS.COM

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 98,000 model-year 2006-12 Kia Sedona minivans manufactured between June 15, 2005, and Aug. 14, 2012, and originally sold or currently registered in Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin or the District of Columbia

The Problem: The front lower control arms may break due to corrosion from saltwater exposure, such as that occurring from road salt use; this could result in the loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the front lower control arms on 2006-07 models. On 2008-12 models, dealers will either replace the front lower control arms or apply additional anti-corrosion coating.

What Owners Should Do: Kia will begin notifying owners on July 25. Owners can call the automaker at 800-333-4542, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
