Don't buy this car unless you are sure!!!!!

2012 Kia Sedona LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


The quality of this car is much worse than I expected. Seat material is thin, electronics unresponsive and unpredictable and the brakes are a safety hazard Kia will not own up to. They allow small pebbles from the road to get into the calipers and impede proper braking application. They call this an environmental situation and will not address it as a design flaw. The dealer won't fix it on his dime either. I have only 1800 miles on the car and it has been in twice for repairs. I live on a paved road! I can't afford to keep paying for brake repairs. Be ready for some disappointments if you buy this car and have previously owned a quality built vehicle,

Fix the brakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make the seats out of something other than cheese cloth.

I agree with this consumer! Not only is the quality lower than expected, they also do not honor their warranty claims. There are MULTIPLE loopholes for the manufacturer to get around covering legitimate claims!

I am a customer to be sure to buy this vehicle. It seems you got a lemon. I am very pleased with my sedona ex. It just went over 2000miles. Braking was fine and ride was very comfortable. I also have a Chevy van close to 180K miles that is still running fine. So I can tell if sedona is good or bad from my long experience in driving and doing maintenance of the minivan. Seat was also very comfortable (I chose leather). Back camera (w/ collision warning), power sliding doors and lift gate. All the electronics worked fine so far
