Vehicle
2005 Kia Sedona EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
Bought the van fully loaded: leather, DVD, ABS, moonroof, etc. Comparatively equipped mini-vans were much more expensive. Currently has about 58k miles after 8 years. The brakes went out by 20k miles and the ABS never seemed to work right. Replaced tires with Hankook (factory) tires the first couple of times. The inner walls on the front tires kept wearing out. Went with Michelins the last time and they seem to be working better. Haven't had any major problems but looking at around $900 for timing belt replacement at 60k miles. Also, spark plugs are very difficult to change out. I average about 13 mpg city and 20 freeway. Paint is fading. Mirrors and bumpers are first to go.
Favorite Features
The ergonomics of the vehicle are good. Good visiblity. Easy to drive. Good sound but the radio has a lot of static from the engine at times. I like the looks and rich color (two tone green/beige) paint. Very heavy vehicle for its class. Came with a 5 year/60k bumper to bumper warranty and 10 year/100k drive train. Bought the extended 10 year 100k warranty that supposedly covers everything else, as I tend to keep my vehicles at least that long.
