A small number of Diesel Sedonas will be recalled for oil pump striner replacements.

But a much larger number will be recalled for rear wheel bearing checks!
Expect letters very soon.

Not heard of any front wheel sounds.. need to hear it to see!
Front bearing is possible, but it's not a very common item.

Hi Murphwiz,

Thanks for that info.

My Sedona 02 is secondhand and out of waranty, should I receive a letter, how do I inform Kia UK where I am or do they do recalls through the DVLA?

These are safety recalls, so will be done with help from DVLA.
I'll get the affected vin's and post them so you can check.

Safety recalls apply out of warranty regardless.

It's a safety item that could be detremental to the safety of vehicle or passengers, so theres no messing by any maker, all done free regardless of year, age, mileage or service history.. if they say or this needs doing, that needs doing, just say, 'ok thanks for letting me know' :lol:

Murphwiz,


Is it possible to tell the age/manufacturing date from the VIN number?. Reason being is that I collect my brand new (55 plate) sedona tomorrow, but it has a VIN starting with KNEUP751256713XXX. Does this mean it has been standing in the dealer showroom for ages?, it was unregistered when I looked at it.

Cheers

Malcolm

Yes it's possible with access to the kia system.
The partial vin you've posted shows a 2005 model year car.

Murphwiz,

Thanks for that, it looked like it was similar to one of the ranges you mentioned for recall, at least it has a lot of common digits. I was concerned that it had been standing in the dealers showroom for a year or so.
