Recalls for 2014 Kia Sedona LX
2014 KIA SEDONA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 16V389000
Component: LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:HOOD:LATCH
Manufacturer: Kia Motors America
Manufacture Dates: 06/15/2005 - 04/04/2014
Potential Units Affected: 219800
Defect Description:
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Kia Sedona vehicles manufactured from June 15, 2005, through April 04, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the secondary hood latch may bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed.
Consequence:
If the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Action to take:
Kia will notify owners and dealers will replace the secondary hood latch or clean and lubricate the latch, depending on the vehicle's location and the condition of the latch. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on July 27, 2016. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall number is SC134.
