 Driver and front passerger seats gets regular use. bolt broke when second row passenger side seatback was released and folded forward for access to third row seating. the seat had not been used for the previous 2-3 weeks. seat is still in folded position. i am retired and cannot afford repair/replacement of seat.
 I need your help to resolve a serious problem. i have nowhere else to turn. my daughter is the owner of a 2003 kia sedona. within a three month period, three of the door handles have fallen off this vehicle! after each handle fell off, she reported it to the local kia dealership. she learned that door handles were not covered and that she would have to pay $250.00 per door to have them repaired. the cost to repair this vehicle is now $750.00. kia does not consider defective door handles a safety issue so there has never been a recall. i believe that this is most certainly a safety issue. if my family was involved in an accident, my four little grandchildren would be trapped inside this vehicle. since i began researching this problem on the internet, i learned that there are many people who have experienced this same problem with their kia sedona van. their complaints are the same
