We bought our 2003 Kia Sedona last year.
The previous owners (original owners) hardly drove it.
The van only had 75K miles on it.
We have put on 26K in one year!
The car has been great for us.
It's been all over the place because my husband travels a lot for work.
It gets good highway gas mileage.
We live in a rural area so it isn't so great for going from town to town.
We haven't had any major issues at all.
We are taking it in for general maintenance expected at 100K.
Plugs, wires, etc. because it is running rough, but with the way we drive that's to be expected.
I love the V6 - it really goes!
I love this mini-van!

I bought my '03 Kia 2 years ago with 49k miles on it. I read good reviews,and it had such low miles I thought for sure I'd have it for a long time. Well 2 years later, it has 78,000 miles and it is breaking constant! Every month I have to bring it in to be fixed! At that mileage I shouldn't constantly be in the shop with it.
Other cons are its tiny,puts a whole new perspective on "mini"van. Good luck putting anything in the trunk space. Also it has no trade in value at all. My vans exterior/interior is perfect,has lower mileage and I can't even get $1500 for trade. Trading it in tomorrow for a Honda Odyseey. Im so done with Kia's.They are sold cheap for a reason,you get what you pay for.
Minor upgrades are in store for the Sedona in its second year on the market. On the outside, buyers will find new taillights, and in the cabin, you'll note a new audio faceplate and a remote fuel-door release. The LX model gets a CD player, while the EX now comes with two keyless remotes, as well as additional leather on the armrests and lower portions of the seats. A trailer hitch is now available for all Sedonas.
I had a similar experience as I was ready to purchase a 2003 Sedona EX with everything and was told my numbers were off. I showed my salesman a print out from Edmunds with the 2002 MSRP/Invoice and T...
