Cons: interior plastic was easliy damagegreat van, roomy, stylish
Pros: The Leather Seats and SunRoof!
Cons: The sound the A/C makes when running.
Advice: Kia's service has been excellent....We traded in our Nissan Quest...Kia offers more for the money.We bought this vehicle used with only 29,000 miles. It is fully loaded with leather seats, and sunroof. Drives nice...holds a family of 7. Ours has the 2 captains chairs and the bench seat in the back. Only complaint we have is that their is a noise coming from the A/C...had it in to Kia to look at...they did replace the compressor free of charge since it is still under the original warranty...but we still hear the sound. Have only had the van about 4 mths...but are happy with it so far. Seats are also super easy to take in and out!
Pros: excellent front seats and the headlights turn off for you if u forget
Cons: Needs a little more power and the second row bench isnt the most comfy
Advice: Drive it and compare options also do look into the new 2006 SedonaGood van...We wished we would have got the ex though. so if you can afford the ex go for it because of the more options you get. We have had it in the shop 3 times under warrenty.
Pros: the radio works
Cons: fuel leaking
Advice: dont buy from kiaAt 19000 miles the fuel tank started leaking gasoline. within 13 months from purchase date i have had this van in for repaires 4 time. Every time i have had to leave it because they dont have the parts for repairs. fuel tank and pump leakes fuel and fumes. abs brakes donot work very well have had to replace brake pads dealer would not cover(normal wear and tear. customer service is hell
Pros: power, gas milage, room, looks great, dvd player & stereo sound system
Cons: doors constantly locking
Advice: go for it! get the deluxe model.The van is incredible. Everything is conveniently located within reach, the grandkids love the dvd player and is awesome for trips. The stereo system is great. The salespeople were helpful. We are looking for a second car right now....Kia, of course!
Pros: Good pick up on the highway
Cons: Gas mileage...
Advice: Make sure to talk to the dealer about ALL the pricing breaks!We've had the Kia Sedona for a year and NOTHING has gone wrong. I am very pleased with this car. We have 24,000 miles and it still feels like we just drove it off the lot. For value and family you can't go wrong.
Cons: kia's service centers and services and poor quality customer service
Advice: Don't buy kia sedona, blue book value goes down so fastI bought a kia sedona coz of 10 year warranty and low price, for sure just 15,000 miles less than 2 years a lot of problems goin out that's the reason why they sell it less with more years of warranty for the manufacturer knows a lot of defects on it and kia service is so poor and gives you a lot of headache when you asked them repairs under warranty, dealer and service centers are limited. When I try to trade in this car the blue book value was just 8,000 US dollars after more than 2 years of using it. Don't buy this car or any of its products they make cost less and long years of warranty but you'll have a lot of problem later on and may think you should have not buy this.
