The worst vicheal I've ever had

The van is bad on gas 12 miles a gallon it's always having problems with the wheel barring and breaks had to be replace 3 time in less than 6 months.


Kia Botched this one

This van seemed good when I got it ( used ) ! Now the driver's side ft., Window Switch was loose and Wild ( Broken ) ! The moon-roof switch Did Not fully close the moon-roof ( Either ) ! I came to find out that This was Standard in All 2004 Kia Sedona's ! ( Yes Others Complained ) And because of this the rain comes through the - 1 inch ( 22 mm ) moon-roof opening and gets onto the headliner, After That it runs to the Console above the rear view mirror so Now 4:00 o'Clock is H:00 O'Clock and 10:00 reads ) 0:00 and other funny times ! Thank God i didn't add transmission Fluid before I " Accidentally " found out that anything other than SPF-III will destroy the transaxle ! That means No Dextron 3 ! There definitely Are good things with this vehicle ! But I can't remember them right now . Negative are the Planed obsolescence In the window switches ( Leading to other deterioration ) ! A Transmission that you HAVE to REMOVE to CHANGE The Filter ! Not to mention A Chemical Composition in the seals and friction materials That WILL be Destroyed if the Wrong Transmission Fluid is added and It's a Strange One at That !! Other then That Kia is hoping that you and your wife Agnus will come down to the Dealership and " Buy a New One " ! Oh Yea ! / Hurry-up, Agnus we want get there and buy another piece of Junk !


worst car i ever owned

bought this piece of junk new. moved from wa to fl in dec 2009, took 8 days. constant breakdowns, could not get it aligned, front eud sooo poorly made, thin metal. tranny out at 70k. kia would not honor warranty. so disgusted i sold it for scrap. should have gone directly from assembly line to scrap heap.


Safe Affordable Family Hauler

The Kia Sedona makes traveling with family a joy. There is plenty of room for up to six passengers. It has good NHTSA and IIHS safety ratings and came with a 60K/5 year bumper-to-bumper warranty. Comfortable and fun to drive with plenty of power to spare.


very unreliable car

This car is very average but has many problems throughout its lifetime. It does fine as a local driving car but is not good for high adventure, off roading, or even mountainous terrain.


Best vehicle I've ever had

We bought our Sedona web we had put third child and it has proven invaluable to our family. The gas mileage is wonderful. The captains chairs in the second row being full sized accommodates adults as well as having latches for car seats. The leather seats in our EX cleaned well and at 14 Years old still have zero cracks or rips. The only minor on this is with as many folks as we have in our family it could use a bit more luggage room in back BUT it has a luggage rack which works, too. We kept up regular matainance but required nothing other major mechanically. I'd definitely recommend!


Best car for the MONEY

Last week end I drove 1200 miles, average 21.5 miles per gallon. You can send a lot more money on a van, but the Kia is perfect for us.


2004 Kia Sedona

I like our new van, we have put on 1000 mile since purchase. Plenty of room for people who have been visiting and very comfortable.


Was a good van

I really miss ours :/ We got our 2004 Sedona EX in early 2010 and it was a great value. The van rode and handled quite well, and the interior was nice and comfy. The only real complaint was fuel economy, it was only 16 mp overall which wasn't very impressive. We had to trade it in for a midsize car because of the rising gas prices. The new car's great too, bu there's just something about that 04 Sedona.


One more thing

The only thing I see is lacking is a interior dome light. Getting things our of the chassis is difficult after dark.
