Great Van Value by Hockey Dad on 05/19/2003. Trim: 2003 Kia Sedona EX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Have had Chrysler & Doge Vans for years. Compared to this Van they are over priced and not very reliable. So far this Kia Van is unbelievable for the price. We got it load for the same price as a stripped down Chrysler. Just well worth the money. The engine is powerfull and all of the options work great. I'll let you know if anything happens.
Cons: Only wish that the back seats folded down into the back but they are lighter than the Dodge and Chrysler seats and they will fold up into the second row of seats in case you need just a little more room.
Overall review: If evrything holds up like I hope I will be hard pressed to ever go bad to Dodge or Chrysler. Value for the money this vehicle wins hands down. Solid, Beautiful, Fast and Comfortable.

Rated P for Pitiful Poor Purchase by Angela on 06/21/2011. Trim: 2003 Kia Sedona LX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The seats are cozy. The surround vents are nice. The pop up tray is cute too.
Cons: We have had several tire blow outs and still trying to find the root of the problem. The gas mileage on it robs you blind. The arm rests are so flimsy that they are easily broken by small kids. Floor mats are hard to get in and out for cleaning. Air conditioning keeps going out. (average 100 to 110 deg F in the summer) Visors are cheap. Electrical switch for side view mirrors has gone out of whack and will not move mirrors in the correct direction. Windshield wiper cleaners are easily clogged. Poor quality sound on sterio. I wrote the rest in the overall review... I ran out of alloted characters in this section.
Overall review: Sounds like a handheld walkman from the 80's. Metors and guages on dashboard are hard to read on a sunny day. To get to back bench seat you have to pop mid bucket seats forward and they sometimes are so springloaded they will hit you hard in the shoulder. The doors are not saftey hinged. If you open the door to the point it catches for you to safely get out with out it closing back on you ..... your chances of it staying put are slim to non leaning mostly towards none. I have come close to getting my foot/ankle caught in the door several times. Windshield wipers have hit the fritz. They work fine but will not go back to point of origin when you turn them off. So unless you time it right on turning them off.... you will be riding with wipers in your field of view.

Best Van We've Owned by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/03/2011. Trim: 2003 Kia Sedona EX, Owned 7 years.
Pros: I love the fact that everything is styled like it would for a more expensive mini-van. It's all easy to reach for the driver, lots of storage in the front. I love the power of the engine and how quiet it is. The bucket seats are very comfortable, seem to hug you as you drive. Being in a winter climate the front windshield wiper deicer is a big advantage. Rides very nice, handles incredibly well.
Cons: The one thing I wish they would have done for this model year is have more storage in the floor. Also, to have the rear seat completely fold up. The fog lights only come on when the headlights are on, would have liked to have seen another option for them to come on without the headlights, but that's probably a safety factor.
Overall review: Very happy with this vehicle. We love it for our big family, and very impressed with the craftsmanship of the interior.

Prettiest worst van ever! by Eddie from Jax on 01/25/2011. Trim: 2003 Kia Sedona LX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: When it works, it is a great van. The styling is excellent even 8 years later.
Cons: Kia dealer, nor Kia factory tech line can make this van run reliably. This van only has 55k miles, truly a lemon.
Overall review: Looks great, MPG not as good as our prior windstar. Reliability is the worst. Bottom line, I would never-ever buy another Kia.
