Excellent value, lots of cupholders and storage bins, solid build quality, good crash test scores, lengthy warranty coverage.
Hefty curb weight, below-average gas mileage, missing a few key minivan features, potentially expensive to repair in minor collisions.
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.
A fine minivan until one considers the price -- at which point it becomes an exceptional minivan.
Read what other owners think about the Used 2003 Kia Sedona.
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!

Piece Of Junk
LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This van is a complete piece of garbage! I have
my 2003 for 3 years and cannot rely on it at all!
The 3.5 liter V6 is quite possibly the worst engine
ever made. Do Not Buy

The 45,000 miles Kia
EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
It appears that KIA products are good for about 45,000 miles. After that quality significantly falls off. At 45,000 miles I had a $1,000 scheduled maintenance bill at the dealer. My KIA Sedona died of terminal engine failure at 79,000 miles. KIA says they are not responsible for the repair. So much for the long haul warranty. Needless to say I will never purchase a KIA or Hyundai … brand product ever again, and I will tell everyone I know about my experience with KIA "no service" Even other auto makers call the KIA's throw away cars because their resell value is next to nothing after just a few years. Mark my words you will be sorry for the day you ever bought a KIA or a Hyundai.

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you
that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make
higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand,
can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a
new car every three years or so.
