problem #1

Mar 012007

For the past 2 months I have been dealing with a very annoying and very dangerous problem the Kia Sedona pulled to the left. While not too noticeable on city streets it I was very noticeable on the freeway, and if the steering wheel was ever let go for a second the car pulled to the left, right toward the freeway median. My hands and arms get tired holding the vehicle straight on long trips. To me, this was a very dangerous situation.* the problem began in March 2007, and has gotten incresingly worse. I have taken it to my private mechanic once for a front end alignment, he said it didn't do anything, but it still pulled to the left!). I have then taken it back to the dealer three times. The first time they said they adjusted somethin at no change. The second time they said they replaced the rightside strut at no change. The third time they claimed they adjusted the leftside strut at no change. My car is now going back to the dealer for a fourth time, to get its left strut replaced. I am not convinced this will solve the problem. This is a safety issue, and I have found several other postings (both here, and in other forums) that all have the exact same compaint: 2006 Kia Sedona pulls to the left. While the dealer has been patient-- they are also clueless and have supposedly not heard of this problem. The last time I was in, they made me take their mechanic for a ride, which I was glad to do, to prove to him that the car veers to the left. The mechanic started using excuses like "oh, the road slopes left, so that's why it does that" and also "this model has torque-steering, so this is normal". in my opinion, this demans a recall. Personally, I am beginning the process of taking advantage of Wisconsin's lemon law - which states that 4 repairs for the same thing in the first year qualify the car as a lemon.
