I have had my 2006 KIA Sedona for almost 2 years now. We purchased it in May of 06 brand new. From the time we drove it home, it seemed to pull hard to the left mostly on the highway. We brought the van back several times and were told it was fine. The service mgr got involved and had it checked several times at Town Fair Tire (because our KIA dealership doesn't do alignment). The alignment always came back fine. Tire pressure was fine, Tires were brand new and balanced. What we were finally told was that the KIA Service technicians receive updates or bulletins regarding complaints that customers have about vehicles and that there really was something to this whole "pulling hard to the left" thing. Apparently something was mounted the tiniest bit off on our van? But because it isn't really considered a "safety" issue, KIA hasn't recalled it. I beg to differ... if I'm going 65 mph on the highway and lost grip of the wheel for just a moment I veer into the left hand lane or jersey barrier... sounds like a safety issue to me! Anyways, at the time the dealership didn't know how to fix the problem and the service manager said his techs were going to be trained on the proper proceedure to fix the problem. Here's where it gets sticky... I waited and waited and never got the problem fixed. Now at 38K miles I've had to replace tires due to them being cupped because of this problem that nobody seems to be able to diagnose. Now there is a new service manager at the dealership I had innitially dealt with and he seems to know nothing about this problem even after searching in my old account files? Is there anybody out there whol knows what this slight manufacture defect is that they haven't recalled? I just want to know so that I can tell them what it was and have it fixed appropriately! I'm sure it's NOT tires, balancing, alignment or anything to do with steering....
If I remember correctly it had to do with mounting something
