2008 Kia Sedona EX 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We've been driving our new vehicle for over a month. I am very pleased with our new '08 Kia Sedona EX (has power doors/power gate). We got a good deal, I think, being a 2008 model (paid 18.7K). It has been working great, drives well, works perfectly. It gets decent highway gas mileage (23.5 or better hwy). The middle seats are so comfortable; much better than stow-n-go seats. I love that the middle windows roll down, but I guess most minivans have that feature these days. CON: The driver's seat arm rest is too low. I can tilt the arm rest up and use it, but I wish I could actually raise the whole arm rest. Same with the front passenger arm rest.


Best Features

Power doors/power tail gate/power middle windows/comfy middle seats/cup holders/manual up or down shift. Our 3 kids love opening the doors and closing them all by themselves. But, I can prevent them from access if needed. The older kids can also recline their seats (ages 5 & 6) all by themselves.


Worst Features

Adjustable arm rest height for front seats. Wish there was no cigarette lighter/ash tray -- use that space better. Come out with the first hybrid minivan in the US...that would ROCK!

2008 Kia Sedona LX 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had owned 3 other minivans, wife wanted another despite kids being much older. Shopped around a fair bit have always owned NA, decided to look at alternatives. Most features for the least amount of money. Great ride, lots of room. Gas mileage is not much different than was claimed 17.9 mpg combined over the last 8 months.


Best Features

Smooth quiet ride, lots of power. Well built, all pieces and parts fit togther like they should. Stow a way rear seats. Cavernous


Worst Features

Expect a bettr quality sound system

2008 Kia Sedona LX 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I had a 2002 Sedona with 175,000 miles on it, that I just traded in to purchase my 2008 Sedona. I loved my 2002, and find that my 2008 is as good if not better!! It's very versatile, comfortable and a great deal for the money.


Best Features

Versatility, comfort, ride and price.


Worst Features

As with my first Sedona, the air conditioning always seems not quite cold enough on really hot days. Gas milage could really be improved, but all minivans suffer this fate.

Review

We drove a rented Sedona in 2008 to Florida. Good van for long trips and we were impressed. We kept waiting for a 2008 with a few miles on it to become available. Finally did in May and we snatched it up. Bought the van for a little over $15K with 11K miles on it. Pick up is as good as my 2006 Monte Carlo. Great ride and comfortable as I am 5'3". The only complaint is no MP3 jack and the stereo really needs to be better quality. Got used to RDS display on the Monte Carlo and miss it. Other than the radio, it's been great for hauling my german shepherd and my toddler granddaughter. Also there's no outside temperature guage which i find odd.


Best Features

Excellent pick up, all the room, folding seats


Worst Features

More modern stereo with satellite capability, mp3 jack, and an outside temperature guage on the LX.
