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.
Pros: I enjoy the sunroof/leather package along with the quality of the radio/CD player.
Cons: Gas Mileage and cargo space with all three rows in.
Advice: Buy the EX modelThe test drive went very well. I was overwhelmed by all of
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.
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.
Pros: Roominess 7 passengers.
Cons: Lack of options
Advice: Check it out before makeing an oppinion!I found this vehicle to be roomy, very comfortable, smooth, quiet, and it seemed to have plenty of power,I rate it to be excellant! And I would say it is priced right!
Cons: wheel covers
Advice: watch out for overpriced 'dealer fees' ie mudguards, enviromental pkgThe test drive was good. The van has good pick-up and handling. The ride was comfortable, even on the poorly maintained roads around the dealership. There is an unusual amount of storage bins. No loud road noise was noticed, the radio was difficult to operate. There is not much room cargo room in the rear with the third row seats in place but the seat is easily removed. A good choice for the money when compared to other minivans
Pros: Comfort of interior layout
Cons: The van is narrow compared to others; golf clubs are tight fit
Advice: Be wary of dealer pricing. Check tire pressure. Skip ABS.This van runs so quietly, it is difficult to believe it is a Kia. Great pick-up, excellent ride, attractive interior. Leather upholstery is tastefully done. Kia engineers appear to have picked out all the good elements from the competition, improved on them, and then lowered the price. Initial ride was too harsh until I lowered the tire pressure from 45 pounds to 35 pounds. Ride improved immensely. Every door and compartment closes with a Lexus quality thunk. Even the radio appears to be good. I purchased for about $1000 under MSRP, but some dealers are increasing price by $1495 for something they call 'market value adjustment'.
