    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: PRICE & LOOKS - Leather Seats.

    Cons: No power sliding rear doors & or security system.

    Advice: Forget the 'KIA' image - compare the features & the price!

    I was amazed! I had looked at the GM, Ford, Dodge and Honda Min-Vans – and for the price and standard options available I was sold. We bought ours for about $1000 less than MSRP – it came with the optional side body molding, leather bucket seats, Anti-lock Breaks and Home Link (fancy garage door opener) plus all the standard features – electric rear window (pop-out), fog lights, rear heater, rear A/C controls, rear window defroster, front window & side mirror deicer, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, overhead lights (7), clock/trip computer, STORAGE, & CUPHOLDERS (everywhere) and MORE. A similar Windstar with all the extras to match would be almost $8,000 more. The only major item it doesn’t have is power rear doors. The 3.5 liter engine with the 5 Speed Automatic provide plenty of power thru all speeds. The standard options are amazing – the rear heating work great (hasn’t been hot enough to really test the A/C). The sound system (AM/FM/Cass/CD – 6 Speaker) is equally to many luxury car system – far better than some of the other mini-vans I looked at. The ride is very smooth and quite, engine noise is extremely quite. The seats are all very comfortable, and there is plenty of leg room – the rear seat are a little difficult to get to with the optional bucket seat in the middle and the head room is a little close for adults, but the kids have no problem. I was told when I bought it that it was design to get a five star rating from the government, but that it had not been tested yet. Since then it has been tested and did receive the five star rating, so if safety is a concern this is the van for you – unfortunately the extra weight does reduce the gas mileage, we are getting around 18 during normally driving (better than the 15 they said). If you are looking for a min-van – make sure to check this one out!

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: Rear air

    Cons: The rear seats aren't stowable within the van.

    Advice: Compare value to similar models!

    The van is reasonably priced with all of its options. The model we drove had leather interior, sunroof, two tone body molding etc. The van comes equipped with 8-way driver seat and 4-way passenger seat auto. Rear air/with vent over every seat. The rear vent windows are elec as well as everything else[except the two side doors:(] The van has plenty of leg room, front and back. I was amazed at how quiet it was inside. Roadnoise is minimal and the engine is undetectable. This is really an amazing vehicle. Honda Odyssey minus the stowable rear seats, but $10,000 less.

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: Engine with 5 speed automatic

    Cons: Low EPA but we are getting better then was listed.

    Advice: Drive this Van and compare the price.

    A very soild smooth and quiet driving and riding Van. The 195hp engine and 5 speed automatic give it plenty of power in traffic and cruises at less rpm then our 97 Toyota Avalon at highway speeds. The Sedona van has many features standard that you can't even get with other vans as an option. Like a full size spare, power passenger seat, or a windshield deicer to mention a few. The qaulity is tops with leather seats and all. You can't beat the price or warranty anywhere.

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: sunroof

    Cons: The interior lights need to stay on longer until you insert the key in the ignition.

    Advice: Buy it you would definitely get your money worth and then some.

    This is the best vehicle I've ever owned. It drives smoothly and quietly. There is a lot of storage space. I love my sunroof, cd/cassette player and most of all the sound. This vehicle has a sound system that you would never imagine coming from a minivan. The price was great compared to others I had seen. I thank the Kia Company for this vehicle a job well done.
