If you own a 2015-2018MY Kia Sedona that has power sliding doors, you might want to pay attention to this one.
According to NHTSA, the sliding doors of the van may not work properly due to a software error and may cause injury.
“The recalled vehicles contain power sliding doors with an automatic stop and reverse feature that is designed to reverse the movement of the door to open when an obstruction is detected,” says NHTSA. “Due to the programmed threshold level of the power sliding door control module, the power sliding door may not change course in the presence of certain obstacles. “

Kia has stated that 106,428 Sedona assembled between July 21, 2014 and December 6, 2017 are affected by this recall. However, since the vehicles were not produced in VIN order, customers looking for more information on the recall should contact the brand’s consumer support center or their local Kia dealer.
The automaker is aware of several injuries associated with this condition. Until May 17, he had identified that 14 of the 21 complaints referred to an injury, and confirmed two.
The owners of the affected vehicles included in this safety campaign will be notified by mail on June 18 and invited to make an appointment with an official dealer to take care of the problem. The fix will see technicians reprogram the power sliding door module software for free.
