From Oldsmobile Silhouette to this. 4 miles less per gallon of gas than my 1999 and 2004. Rides like a dump truck, loud, poor cornering, terrible in snow with good snow tires. Doors freeze shut in winter. Wiper blades clear only part of the visual field. Rear wiper can only be obtained at a dealership and lasts about six months for $ 25.00 Side mirrors poorly suited to the vehicle. Cheap arm rests that fail constantly. Worst radio in automotive history. There is nothing that could convince me to try this vehicle again.
The rotors on my Sedona 2010 always stress on a downgrade. The whole system vibrates and sounds like it will fail. Car has less than 35,000. Dealer told me it is the way I drive. I live on flat land with little or no traffic to stress system. One "Goodwill Warranty" machined front brake 7/7 and rear brake 6/6. Within 3 months I had to drive the same grade...huge vibration. Immediately took car to dealer...Insisted I needed to replace all rotors (approx $500.)..Took to my local brake specialist...$70.00 ..machined left front rotor...pads good. Did not need to replace rotors. Again 6 months later brakes vibrate on a downhill grade. Anyone else experiencing this?
bought used with 33,000 from car rental, saved $$$$. Changed to mobile one oil, took a 2,000 mile trip from SA TX to Wich KS and back, plus sight seeing. Averaged 25mpg running mostly 80mph. Pros: Great seating, acceleration, handling, traction and braking. good visability, low road noise, lots of storage places and plenty of drink holders. Well placed controls, easy to access while driving. Good factory window tinting, dual A/C keeps everyone comfy. Getting around 18 mpg in town. Cons: Can't think of any yet, will post later if I find any.
Great front visabilitly
Electric everything for controls, well laid out.
3.8L 244 HP engine needs the traction control to keep you on the road, great power on pull out and passing!! Better than the 3.5L 2010 Dodge Charger, couldn't believe the guts this thing has!
Rear camera or back up alarm, both great safety features.
Maybe a center console with cooling beverage storage between the front buckets.
Change middle seats to stow and go, like rear seats.
I view a car as a depreciating asset and a necessary evil that needs to be reliable and safe. I do not view my vehicles as a statement of my success nor do I view them as a mobile living room. That said, I bought a used 2010 Sedonna LX with 18000 miles on the odometer, covered the steering wheel with a laced leather cover, and I am thrilled with it. It drives as nicely as many other minivans, gets fair gas mileage, and was a great value. Based on my first three months with the vehicle, I highly recommend the Kia Sedonna LX if you are seeking enjoyable and well priced transportation.
