Kia Motors (UK) is recalling 9,955 Sedona models built between June 2005 and April 2014 to check the operation of the vehicle’s secondary bonnet catch.
The secondary latch could remain in the open position if the device has suffered surface corrosion. Kia is not aware of any UK vehicles suffering a failure or being involved in any accident as a result of this problem with the latch.
The last Kia Sedona sold in the UK was registered in December 2012 but manufacturing continued for other markets after this date. All registered owners are being contacted in order to arrange the fitting of a replacement latch at no cost to the owner. The repair takes 20 minutes.
The recall is being undertaken in conjunction with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. Owners will be contacted by mail or they can contact Kia directly.
