We purchased the Sedona from Fox in Charlevoix and we had just received in the mail notice of a free brake inspection from them. We took it and they could find nothing wrong with the vehicle after making an all points check. We were told the brakes were good, as well as the shocks. So it appears to us, that you were trying to gouge us? Needless to say we won't be bringing our vehicles to you for repair.
I am sorry you feel this way with regards to our diagnosis. I assure you our techs are fully qualify, ASE and State certified. The issue you have with the vehicle was a shimmy and a thumping noise. Upon inspection of the vehicle, my tech noticed you had some cupping on the rear tires. When there is cupping on the tires especially on a Kia Sedona, more then likely it is coming from an issue with the Rear shocks. When you change the rear shocks you should always include an alignment on a Kis Sedona. It is standard practice. As far as the front brakes are concerned, yes you had 60% life left on the Left Front Brake pad and 25 % life left on the right side. This indicates an issue with the caliper hanging up causing uneven wear and the rotors to overheat causing warping. This will cause thumping in the brakes. There was rust on the pistons and the right front hardware on the caliper was not moveable, which causes the caliper not to operate properly. As far as the rear brakes were concerned, our tech recomended servicing the caliper to free up the mount. He found, upon inspection, there was slight uneven wear on the inboard pad. He felt if he could lube up the Right rear caliper mount that would rectify the situation. Also please keep in mind, every tech is different as to when they will recommend the repairs. With the issues you stated to us and the problems we found, these are the reason we recommended changing Calipers, pads and rotors on the front, servicing the Right rear caliper and doing to the shocks to save the wear on your tires.
