Overall, not really satisfied.
Bought our minivan used with 99k miles on it. It’s comfortable, and aside from the battery dying and needing to be replaced, (which is understandable), it’s been reliable. Biggest issue is this van burns oil very quickly. The dip stick goes from “full”to “Low” after two trips to the gas station (~1000 miles). It requires me to add 6-7 quarts of oil between changes. Absolutely insane. And according to the dealership that’s an acceptable level of oil loss with the engine. First car I’ve had that’s burned oil. Other issues: The power sliding door wouldn’t shut but thankfully that was covered by a recall otherwise that was a ~$1000 fix. Our SX came with the entertainment center, but because we bought it used it didn’t come with the remote. The remote is no longer made and even with the part number I can’t track it down, kinda disappointing.
2016 Sedona tranny issues
(2016 Kia Sedona EX) I had to have the transmission replaced at 45k. After numerous visits to Kia dealership…they finally heard what I was hearing..the transmission not shifting correctly/and awful noise. I was fortunate that the transmission was still under warranty. (After the work was complete the engine/transmission is still very noisy..until you drive for an hour or more then the engine seems to calm down) I really like the concept of a van. Would I buy Kia again? …probably not. I think the 2016 model had some problems….if I bought a Kia again I would really pay attention to the engine (noise/and tranny)…I would never buy a used Kia without kia’s warranty it’s too risky.
This van does not meet all the amenities I hoped to have in such a high-ranking van. It's a very nice van but prefer Chrysler Town and Country
