I love my Sedona ex, and you will love it too.

This is a very roomy van. We have the screens in the headrests for the kids, which is such a help on long trips. The automatic doors and hatch are extreme helpful when I have my hands full. We get amazing gas mileage. The fold down seats in back and the removable seats in the middle are wonderful when we have to haul big objects places. We have only had to do basic maintenance on the van all this time. We haven't had any major issues mechanically. No real rust is showing when though we live right by Chicago and its 15 years old. It is a really smooth ride and our favorite to take on road trips. We recently drove to Louisville Kentucky and even with the roads torn up, the ride went really well. Although we get really great gas mileage all the time, it was even more improved on the highway. I love the heated seats when it's cold outside. It's nice to not only have the heat blowing around you, but also directly on your body. Which not only helps when it is cold, but it helps ease tired sore muscles. The reverse camera is amazing as well. It really helps spot those things you may not see in your mirrors as you are backing up. I did have 1 small fender bender in it, and you can barely even see the mark. The body holds up just as well as the mechanical parts. As far as I know, there was only 1 recall on it in all the time I had it, and it was for a bad sensor. The dealership fixed it right away and we haven't had any problems. We didn't have problems beforehand either. I always brag about my van to my friends.

Kia Sedona is a well built vehicle.

The only problem I have had is I have had to replace the alternator about 6 times. Other than that, I love my van. It is comfortable, even on long drives. There are controls for the driver's seat that adjust the lumbar section of then back and one that adjusts the seat section up and down to help relieve leg cramping on long drives. The two rows of back seats are removable which is helpful for transporting large items. The second row of seats can be positioned on either side of the van, making it easier to have a main side for entering or exiting the van. The hatch-back door on the back is easy to open and quite wide to help with loading. The dashboard has 3 compartments for storage, plus a secret locking compartment under the front passenger seat. The heater and air conditioner work great even in the last row of seats. The am/FM radio has 12 programmable stations for each frequency, plus a CD player, both of which have worked fine. I have over 190,000 miles and it passed the ca smog certification a few months ago, and it still runs just fine. I would buy a Kia vehicle next time I consider buying a new or used vehicle.

These vehicles in general have problems with the a/c unit.

Right now the vehicle is not shifting out correctly. The air conditioner only blows out cold air if the rear air conditioning unit is on. We recently changed a/c compressor. Sometimes the a/c will not work a all. Overall the seating is pretty comfortable, the hard plastic part by the driver seat that houses the seat controls has cracked. We put pressure on it getting in and out of the car. I do like the front and rear windshield washing system. I like the locking mechanisms on the passenger doors unless my kids accidentally lock them. One passenger sliding door is scraping the van a the bottom as you close it and open it though. I also like how you can take out the seats to clean, store things, etc. I don't like how trash or small items get stuck in the seat tracks though. You hear a lot of different sounds but you cannot till were these sounds are. I like the CD player as well. I also like having all the extra spaces for cups and charging outlets.
