Salt Exposure Causes Mass Minivan Recall

Kia Recalls 80,000 Sedona Minivans

For U.S. states with harsh winters, covering snowy and icy roads in rock salt saves countless lives by safeguarding against dangerous roadways. However, salt may actually be putting Kia minivan drivers in these regions at risk.

Kia Motors Corp. is recalling 80,000 Sedona minivans in the U.S. because salt exposure is causing a part of the vans' suspensions to rust and break. This malfunction causes drivers to lose control of their vehicle which could result in severe car accidents and injuries.

The recall includes minivans sold or registered in U.S. states where salt is used to clear roads in the winter. This affects 20 states including Pennsylvania. The recalled Sedona minivans are models from years 2006 through 2012.

Starting next month, Kia dealers will inspect the parts and rustproof or replace them for free.

The recall covers vans in Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Rhode Island, West Virginia or the District of Columbia.
