i bought the kia because of looks. now that i have i have found that it is better than i thought. the level of extras is amazing and plenty to play with. the sound system is jvc and works well. it seems good on fuel only done a few miles in it so far but its comfortable and a pleasing ride. Its a big car though and takes sum turning a multstory carparks.
I have a 2002 diesel model. I bought it 10 months ago with 40,000 miles on the clock.
I've now driven 30,000 trouble-free miles in it and I absolutely love it! It was bought for work to transport five adults all over the country. I recently took it to Ireland and it doesn't miss a beat - it just seems to go on and on, even when it's doing 1500 miles a week!
OK, it's not the fastest thing you'll ever drive, but I can still get between 38 and 42mpg! I'll admit its a bit noisy on the motorway, but I just turn the radio up. I think that's the only fault I can pick with it - its definitely better than the equivelent American rubbish.
9 months ago I bought a 3 year old relatively low milage 2002 Sedona 2.9 diesel. A month ago it packed in on me totally while driving along. I took it to a Kia dealership to get the problem diagnosed and was given the news that the fuel pump had disintegrated (their words!) and would need replacing along with the fuel linings and injectors. What is even more shocking is it will cost between £3000 and £4000 to fix. The dealership recomended speaking to Kia so I did. On my first phone call the girl I spoke to told me there was a known problem with the fuel pumps and as a matter of goodwill they may be able to help out. But after a few more phonecalls to them I've had the news that they dont want to know and will not assist, even though I was originally told there was a manufacturers fault with the fuel pumps. While it was running it was a good car - but nobody needs or expect this kind of hassle with a 4 year old car thats done 50k miles. I would never recommend Kia, they have been horrible to deal with and go against everything they prompote themselves to be in their ad campaigns.
The Kia Sedona is a fantastic car, it's the UK's cheepest large MPV, yet its the most stylish and comfertable car I have been in.
There is lots of space inside the car, (it's a massive car, but is great and very easy to drive.) the switches at the front of the car are simple and very easy to use.
There are eight cup holders in the car, which is very handy when on long journeys so you don't have drinks spilling over the seats when the cups are on your lap.
Another impressive feature in the Sedona is its DVD player which keeps the kids nice and quiet. If you want to listen to the DVD/CD playing on the DVD player, you can have the sound coming through the speakers, rather than using the cordless headphones suppied with the car.
Another nice feature is the sound balance, if you want all the sound from the speakers to be heard only in the rear end of the car or at the front, there is a simple control which allows you to do this.
The Kia Sedona is a great car and has no bad points. I recommend it to everyone.
