Hi I'm a newbie name Welshjohn.
I have had two Kia Sedonas both bought with around 50,000 miles and both converted to be Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles (WAVS) to transport my wife's electric wheelchair.

The 07 reg vehicle did not like going slow. In stop start traffic however carefully I let in the clutch and allowed it to go at its own speed - 0-5 mph or so it acted literally like a bucking bronco. It would almost jump up off the road. As I had a 3 months warrantee I took it to a local Kia main dealer. A mechanic drove it with me as passenger and found the same problem. He agreed with me. However when he had spoken to the workshop manager he said they had not been able to find anything wrong. Sound familiar? As a result I could not get the commercial seller to take any action.

Recently changed for a 2008 reg exactly the same specs. 2.9 diesel converted to a WAV. GUESS WHAT? Exactly the same problem. I have about an eleven months left or the seller's warranty about 200 miles away but what should I do? No good taking this one to my local main dealer obviously. Remember when we started to drive - very many years ago in my case - and everyone said "Kangaroo petrol again"!!

Has anyone else had this problem? Maybe it's a Sedona failing. If anyone has, did you manage to get anything done about it?
