Vehicles Affected: Approximately 220,000 model-ear 2006-14 Kia Sedona minivans manufactured from June 15, 2005, through April 4, 2014
The Problem: The secondary hood latch may bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed. 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 crash.
The Fix: 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, for free.
What Owners Should Do: The automaker will begin notifying owners on July 25. Owners can call the automaker at 800-333-4542 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more information.
