We bought ours in early March 2010 with about 36000 miles, just prior to a trip to Florida. During our trip we got a check engine light and car went into "limp home" mode. We restarted the car and it ran fine for our trip. Upon returning home we took it to the KIA Dealer and they replaced the throttle body assembly and problem was fixed. It was covered by warranty and it was fixed in just a couple of hours. The van drives real nice and has a lot of room, even for 2 adults and 5 children. We are very happy with the van to date. It has plenty of pickup, and is pleasing on the eyes. Had it not been for the problem we had just after we bought it we would have given 5 stars across the board. Also, I am 6'2" and the driver seat is just a little small, but not uncomfortable for long trips. We LOVE that the rear windows roll down.
Upgrade from an Outback
2015 Kia SedonaJoe Noel - Charlottesville, VA11/22/2016
We were cramming in 2 kids and a dog into an Outback before this so the extra room for us and all of our outdoor gear is a huge luxury. If you have small kids I highly recommend upgrading to the auto open side doors b'c the doors are a bit heavy for a small child to open. We have also owned a Jeep Commander which is similar in size and this drives way better and has lots more room. The only thing we had to give up was the 4-wheel drive. This is a great family vehicle at a price much cheaper than a Honda or Toyota.
Good car not sure of battery
2015 Kia SedonaDavid Langenderfer - Columbus, IN11/14/2017
I like the car just a little concerned about the battery. The 2 year old car had an aftermarket battery already. According to Kia it requires a "KIA" battery as we found out it left us stranded a few times with a dead battery. Kia replaced with a Kia battery and haven't had an issue in 3 weeks. Other than that the car has been great.
