40,000 mile second review; still a winning buy. Excellent product! Buy 1! by Robert in Michigan on 03/25/2006. Trim: 2002 Kia Sedona EX, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Warranty coverage. Smooth, quiet ride. Quick acceleration. Trouble-free operation. The list of standard features on the EX trim over and above other manufacturers is amazing. Even a full-sized spare on competitors is a costly option, if available at all! I can't say enough positive things about this vehicle. I've never had a vehicle that has been so trouble-free and fun to drive.
Cons: Gas mileage! But what do you expect from something that weighs almost 5000 pounds? If the passenger side airbag ever deploys in the early models, the entire dash will have to be replaced; hope they will think this through with the next generation.
Overall review: It has been owned for 4 years, NOT < 1 as stated in the header. Don't know what is wrong there with MSN software. I selected 2002 as purchase year. Anyway...Unable to find my first review, but this van has been trouble free for the past four years. Purchased in April 2002 with 22 miles, it now has just passed 40,000 miles and has yet to let us down. It has taken us cross-country twice. The only thing I have replaced is the tires, otherwise, it has received regular oil / filter changes, tire rotations and the general minor maintenance required to keep a vehicle running. It has not been to the dealer for any work; NO mechanical breakdowns! The powertrain is as strong and vibrant as the day I drove it home four years ago.
