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.

European firm Pure Adventures is rolling into the Western U.S. with both guided and self-guided bicycle tours. Among the first is a six-day, six-night self-guided bike tour of the Sonoran Desert, north of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Sedona and the surrounding red rock landscape. Bikers first meet in Scottsdale for orientation and a review of their planned rides and to fit their cars with bike racks. Rides on days two and three take place in the Sonoran Desert, where there is a wide variety of trails. Lodging for three nights is at the Carefree Resort & Conference Center . Day 4 begins with an out-and-back ride on Black Canyon Trail, followed by a 90-minute drive to Sedona, home to some of the best mountain biking in the country.

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.

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.

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.
