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!
The cup holders block access to the CD holder.
If I want to change CD's, I can't have the cup holder open.
Not too good a design...
I purchased this van 2003 Kia Sodona 2 years ago and right after I paid it off the engine had problems it has blown head gaskets and will cost me $2200.00 to get back on the road.
My favorite features is the entire vehicle I love how it looks the outside inside the vehicle, it even road fine up until a month ago, then it stopped on the free way smoking and was told I blew head gasket and will cost me $2200.00 or buy a new engine
Suggestions that the maker of this vehicle fix the problems it has in the engine and investigates why are so many people having problems with their engines
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.
