Kia is recalling nearly 80,000 Sedona minivans to fix a part of the suspension that can corrode over time and may break. The recall affects 79,867 Sedona models from the 2006 to 2012 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. After prolonged exposure to road salt used to melt snow and ice, the front lower control arm of the suspension can corrode and possibly break, the agency said in a statement. “A broken control arm can result in the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash,” the NHTSA said.

The cozy world of minivans got a bit more competitive Monday, as Kia officially debuted its all-new Sedona. The 2015 people-mover is new from the ground up and replaces an outdated and slow-selling Sedona that's been around since 2006. “Throughout the development process, our engineers in the U.S. and Korea focused on adding the element of desire to the all-new Sedona," said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for Kia.

Mysteries dwell within the towering red rocks of northern Arizona. And it doesn't take a Sedona visitor long to stumble upon them. "The woo-woo factor is strong here," psychic Craig Junjulas told me the morning I arrived. "Huh?" I said, doing a double take; I was pretty sure he had said woo-woo, the moaning sound kids make when they imitate ghosts (as opposed to whoo-whoo, the singsong sound they make when pretending to be a train). "You know, mystical things," he said, vaguely.

The world of minivans hasn't had much excitement injected into it in a while, but look to Kia to change that later this month at the New York Auto Show. The South Korean automaker announced Thursday that it would bring an all-new "midsize multipurpose vehicle" to the show for a world debut on April 16. Don't let the jargon fool you, this will be the next generation of Kia's Sedona minivan. The current Sedona has been around since 2006, and its age has left it at the bottom of a competitive set that includes the Dodge Caravan, Chrysler Town and Country, Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna.

We just returned from a trip to Sedona, Ariz., where we contacted longtime resident and musician Peter Sterling for a red rock tour. At one spot, we lay down on the flat red rocks. Then he played a rose quartz crystal bowl over us during a guided meditation. At another site, we sat out on the ledge of the rock. There, he held his "wind" harp over us and the wind danced over the strings. We could feel its vibration. That was a beautiful highlight of my trip. The next day we both got massages from his partner, Crystal Bliss, that were absolutely heavenly.

It was a wonderful description of Sedona. One of the places Jerry mentioned, L'Auberge, sounds so attractive that we plan to stay there on our way to California the latter part of March. One of the truly memorable things about Sedona which was not mentioned is a home for the great surrealist, Max Ernst. He and Dorothea Tawning lived there from 1946 to 1950. She has exhibited all over the world. When I visit Sedona I will try to find the house which they built, if it is still standing.

Realizing that Sedona, Ariz., is no secret, I just wanted to mention that during our visit there, in late October, it was truly a magical, sun-dappled Shangri-La! Apart from its history and the incredible sunsets, the awesome red rock mountains, the silence and the still air are a real treat from our Southern California congestion.

Regarding Rosemary McClure's story "Sedona's Spirit" [April 5]: I have been to Sedona about six times, usually over Thanksgiving. I love it there. Arizona 179 road improvements are great. They really help move traffic along, and the road is aesthetically pleasing. I know you can't list many places under "Where to Stay" and "Where to Eat," but I am surprised you mentioned the Matterhorn Inn. Maybe you needed to list a budget hotel? Go online and check out the Hilton Sedona Resort & Spa. I believe the hotel and its amenities are worth mentioning.

This weekend you will be able to step onto the rim of the Grand Canyon, hold onto the railing and look down -- without leaving Southern California. Chalk artist Tracy Lee Stum, who creates 3-D images that are crazy-realistic, will bring the natural wonder to life on a section of the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. The image will be arranged "so that when people are looking over the railing of the chalk art, it will feel like they are really leaning over the edge of the canyon ," Sherry Henry, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism, said in a statement.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Wen Zhang, 34, said her 4-year-old son was eagerly looking forward to staying at an American hotel during his first trip to the U.S. Zhang, her husband and her son, along with her sister's family, were planning a road trip to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Sedona, Ariz., during her son's summer vacation. But as Asiana Flight 214 was about to land at San Francisco International Airport, something went wrong. The plane's tail skidded across the runway and a large hole was ripped open in the fuselage just a few feet from Zhang's seat in Row 40. Bags and air masks tumbled down, windows broke, and the cabin went dark as ashes flew everywhere.

"You're taller than I remembered. " After 40 years it may seem like a strange greeting, but after four decades memory becomes, at best, a series of snapshots. I, on the other hand, knew her at once. A 60ish version of the girl from the 1960s. My lost love. We met in our early 20s. She was tall, slim, smart, funny with this great laugh. She also wanted someone who was not me. She had a wicked way of talking about the men in her life, defining them by the cars they drove. "I'm going out with the Trans-Am tonight.

Every traveler has weaknesses. With my wife, it's horses and shoe stores. Mine - well, one of mine -- is flatiron buildings. Put me in front of a three-sided building - tall, squat, immaculate or broken down -- and my jaw goes slack. Pretty soon my camera's memory is full and I'm circling the property, trying doorknobs. My name is Reynolds and if I'm getting the Latin right, I am a trivallumophile. The telltale moment came early this year, on a trip to Arizona. There I sat in Jerome, an old mining town that looks to be slowly sliding down a hardscabble hillside between Sedona and Flagstaff.
