What does Car 5 months ago Haven't had any issues with it all of a sudden it doesn't wanna star it won't crank over all the lights come on and it's the anti theft system Call the dealership and all they do is give you the run around I'm sure they know what the problem is now but all they wanna do is get me in there because according to them it could be 5 to 7 different things Losing my faith in kia I have a 04 kia Sedona
Living in Canada, our winters are hard on cars. This van would not die! I bought this van with 250,000km on it and I ran it until 450,000km it was still running strong but I hit a moose going 110km an hour and it destroyed the van. Every year we would haul a 4500pound trailer all the way around Ontario and it never really hurt the van. Even though every year the rear heater lines would rot out there was nothing really done other than regular maintenance. The a/c stopped working after hitting my second deer. But other than those things you could run this van through hell and it wouldn't even get a scratch I even took it muding once. good job Kia you built a bullet proof tank
The engine has amazing power and response . It gets better fuel economy than my 3.0L ranger. Engine suspension and transmission can take a good beating the thing is bullet proof
Over 180,000 miles on this van and still going. I keep changing the oil and it keeps going! I've had to replace the water pump twice and the coil packs went out so we replaced those. Air conditioner worked well up 'til last summer. The suspension doesn't seem to be that great and I haven't sprung to replace the struts although the van needs it-- but really, how many more miles am I going to be able to put on it? I'm really happy with it over all.
The V6 gives it plenty of power.
Cruise control is awesome.
Cargo lights in the back are nice.
Really like the removable seats.
Make it easier to change the head lamps!!! What a pain!
I bought my Kia new in 2004 and have riven it for over 133,000 miles. Overall the car has performed well without unreasonable mechanical problems; except, the lines for the rear heater have rusted out twice. The first time I paid over $600 to replace them and Kia just said, "Gee, I am sorry to hear you had that problem." Reviews that criticize Kia for not doing something better for their customers are correct. Also the rear window defrost has failed. I have not experienced any problem with rust on my Kia and I live in Michigan. As my car has aged, in the recent months it has experienced a series of problems; for which I am considering replacing it. Everything gets old eventually.
The four back seats are removable; which creates a lot of room for hauling things.
I like the general lay out of the interior and the way space is used in the van.
The feature for being able to program in the automatic garage door is good. Sunroof.
Improve the lines going to the back heater. Also the lettering on many of the buttons (cruise, AC, Heater) have worn off.
This should not happen.
(cheap I guess) Almost forgot --the radio/cd has a tendency to jam and completely quit working.
Fortunately Kia supplied us with a yellow tab for pulling the fuse under the hood which fixes the problem.
(Obviously they knew it was a problem and they chose the work around rather then to fix it.)
Better radio/ CD
