Kia Sedona Update: Service is still an issue

December 01, 2006

After nearly five months, four dealership visits, one dealership out of business and a long line of cassette tapes our Kia Sedona's CD changer is finally fixed. Car Pros Kia in Carson got the job done and the staff was very helpful. Our van was not ready at the time promised but they did give us an 05 Sedona as a loaner without charging us.

Still, with several Kia dealers in the Los Angeles area closing we can't help but wonder how a Kia customer from the midwest or deep south would have done given the same set of circumstances.

Kias are clearly worth considering alongside Hondas and Toyotas but the dealership network doesn't seem capable of handling all the new customers - is Kia's success a surprise even to Kia?

For now the CD changer is loaded with Audio Adrenaline, Kasey Chambers, 10,000 Maniacs, Gorillaz and maybe a Christmas disc or two. Plus, I've got $5 that says our Managing Editor may slip a Rosemary Clooney disc in.
