We bought this car with only 6400 miles on it, so we haven't been in to the high mileage yet, but we have loved the car so far. We picked the Sedona over other vans we considered for the price and the simplicity of the vehicle. There were other cars on the lot that had more "bells and whistles", but that is just more to repair. The car runs great, has plenty of power in acceleration, and is a relatively smooth ride. The cargo area with the fold down rear seat is adaptable to meet our needs (two kids and frequent guest passengers) and easy to operate. The only issue we have had so far is a raw gas smell on the hottest days when the fuel tank is low. We haven't found the problem yet, but I suspect we will eventually.
Overall, a great car for a great price.
2003 Kia Sedonaswtpoizon - california08/29/2008
I just bought a 2003 kia sedona.I am a single mom of 3 kids. I really like this mini van it was reasonable on price and it runs good. I do however had a fuel sensor go out on it after about 2 months but it was nothing that would leave me stranded. I look at it has things happen. I had another car a 2006 mazda mvp that the front wheel well came off and it had a crack in a think it was the alternator. that was only a few weeks of owning it. So i am very happy with my purchase. I look at things as u can buy new or used cars ur gonna have problems with either one juz things happen oh well that's what warranties are for. I have no complaints about my kia and it has alot of room for my kids and my kids love it too....
Love my 09 Sedona!

This is my first van and I absolutely LOVE it! It handles surprisingly well and is comfortable and fun to drive. It's well designed and has several great features. Two that I particularly like are the built-in satellite radio and the USB port that enables me to plug in and play music from my MP3 player.
The center seats are easy to remove, allowing me to strap in my dog's crates and the bench seat in the back is configurable in several different ways.
One thing I do wish it had was more lock-able storage in addition to the glove box.
Aside from that, I'm very pleased the overall quality and feel I got an excellent value for the money.
