Junk engines. Stay away.
Bought June 2017 new. By February 2023 it was sold for parts at 120,000 miles. Engine bearings wore out. New motor was going to cost $10K. I took $2K from the scrapyard after paying $400 to get it towed to the dealership. Stay away from KIA. Junk. Don’t be fooled by the interior or Features. They have terrible engines.
Buying it fixed up has been more than fine!
We got a used Sedona and have loved it! We don’t regret it one bit after these few years we’ve had it so far. Even with the few dings from the previous accident, with the work done correctly this feels like a brand new van!
EX Version Review After 5 Years of Ownership
I bought the EX-version new from the dealership. The vehicle is great to this point. The driver's seat hits the back of my legs, and I am unable to adjust it to my liking. My legs get tired because of this. (I am 5'8) Recently, some of the parts have started falling off. Rubber stops on the lift gate and some plastic on the sliding door which I find concerning. I have 45,000 miles on the car. Around the city, I get about 17 to 19 MPG but full highway driving (California to Pennsylvania) I got nearly 28 MPG! Overall, the vehicle is pretty good, and I recommend it, however, I am concerned with what it will be when I reach 100,000. I am a little apprehensive about keeping it beyond 100,000 miles as opposed to my other vehicle, a Toyota.
