 I am an employee of kia motors america. please look into this very dangerous issue. the power sliding doors on 2005-2008 kia sedona mini vans open by themselves while the vehicle is in motion. there are many cases reported to kia customer relations department however kia has not made it public. kia is testing a few updated parts to correct this issue. most without success. kia motors has a lot of these cases and may be attempting to cover it up. this is a very dangerous issue given the fact that a child may fall out of the vehicle while the car is in motion. these defective power sliding doors can open at any speeds, on the freeway at 55 mph or driving around town. please look into this! this is not a joke or a scam. this is a very serious issue that kia may be trying to cover up due to the cost of repair and or not having the correct countermeasure. customers must be warned and the power sliding doors must be turned off and a manufacture recall issue. please address this issue immediately. you do not want to read about a child falling out of a sedona mini van on the freeway. the vin that i listed is used just to get this complaint into the nhtsa however all sedona vans are affected.

SEATS
02/14/2010360001
 While driving on the highway the driver's power seat moved back on its own and the controls to move the seat were non-responsive. the driver had to release the seat belts to slide forward on the seat in order to reach the pedals. had to pull over and turn the vehicle off before the power seat controls would work again. after getting back on the road, the same thing happened again. if this had happened when the driver needed to stop, they would not have been able to reach the brake pedal. took the vehicle to the dealership the next day. they kept the car all day and were unable to diagnose or reproduce the issue and returned the vehicle to us. *tr

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL
06/22/200812001
 This is a brand new 2007 kia sedona. i was merging on a highway and pressed the acceleration pedal as usual when i noticed immediately that the car was stuck on the acceleration mode despite the fact my foot was no longer on the gas pedal. the car would not slow down or stop despite my foot pressing firming them slamming the brakes. in fact the engine/motor kept racing even though now i was slamming on the emergency brakes. although i could not look down at the dashboard, my minivan must have been going over 100mph in moderate traffic. this continued until i passed another exit. the only resolution was to shift the car into neutral which slowed it down and then i was able to put the car into a narrow shoulder and put it in park then turned the car off right away. my family and i were almost killed because of this vehicle failure! *tr
