Excellent value, roomy interior with lots of cupholders and storage bins, solid build quality, lengthy warranty coverage.
Below-average gas mileage, missing a few key minivan features, potentially expensive to repair in minor collisions.
For 2004, the Sedona has a revised grille with a larger logo. The EX model has a new alloy wheel design, while the LX has redesigned plastic wheel covers. A center tray table with cupholders is now standard on both EX and LX.
While mainstream minivans may offer all the latest gadgets, Kia's Sedona continues to stuff all the essential ingredients of a family vehicle into a value-priced package.
Cost to DriveCost to drive estimates for the 2004 Kia Sedona EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A) and comparison vehicles are based on 15,000 miles per year (with a mix of 55% city and 45% highway driving) and energy estimates of $3.26 per gallon for regular unleaded in Virginia.
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

Still going strong at 120,000 miles.
2004 Kia Sedona EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I have previously posted here as FRUGAL DRIVER (see below). This van, bought in 07 with 64K, is still going strong as a half ton hauler and work van. Today its going 750 miles (and back in three days) in my wife's hands to take KID MARK I to university for the first time. Had a/c fixed--damage inflicted on a hose by an idiot.
Now that the OBAMA CAFE rules have effectively removed small … pickups (Chev 10, Ford Ranger)
& the old vans (ASTRO etc) from the US market, what are you doing to drive?
This van will haul a half ton well.
It takes abuse if you maintain it well. Drive it gently.
This vehicle was originally built as a light truck for the S. Korean Army (02-06 model). Its tuff.

We put A LOT of miles on this van!
2004 Kia Sedona LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
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.

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.
