Seats 6, 8 cup holders, 2 car charger ports, separate air.

2005 Kia Sedona LX

It is a very comfortable ride. I have had mine for about 8 months. It has gotten me from point a to point b without any problems. It comes with 8 cup holders! That may not be important to anyone but me, but with my family of 4 we need like 2 cup holders each. So it is literally perfect. It has 2 built in car charger ports. One in the front and one in the back. (awesome right!?) It also has air controls for front and back. So if you are cold up front and the back is still burning up, turn your ac off while the others enjoy it on still. You back two seats are removable. So if you have a lot of cargo, just remove the back seats. (warning: they are a little heavy!) Also, the van seats 6!

Well overall it is roomy. It is not to bad for a mini van.

2005 Kia Sedona LX

I have had my Kia van for about 3 years. The van itself has a lot of room inside. It can seat up to 6 passengers. I have had to replace the radiator twice in the time I have owned it. I also had to have to replace 6 tires. There is an oil leak and something must be wrong with the cooling system. Over all I am surprised it is still running some days.

Car is made for short people

2005 Kia Sedona LX

My Kia Sedona is made for short people anytime I get into the car I hit my head because I must be too tall but I'm only 5'7. The car no tilt for the steering wheel so when I am driving I can never see the speedometer because the steering wheel blocks my view of it very frustrating. I car really has no pick up and go very sluggish

Spacious van that drives like a sports car

2005 Kia Sedona LX

Runs great, drive like a compact, lots of get up and go. Very roomy. All 4 rear seats can be removed easily for hauling large items. Even have camped inside. This van drives like a car and has a ton of get up and go. It powers up hills like flat ground. Lots of storage compartments. A works great.

The fuel pump has went in it three times in the last two years.

2005 Kia Sedona LX

My vehicle is basically great but it has had a few problems like the fuel pump has went there times on it everything else has been basic maintenance. I love all the other features though. It has cruise control and a sunroof which comes in handy when it is hot outside my kids absolutely love this.

- Cynthia A

It's a great van. That really doesn't have any problems.

2005 Kia Sedona LX

I haven't really had any. We have had to. Put a new starter and we have also had to put tires on it. Otherwise it has been a good van. I am sure at some point we will have to put new brakes on it and wipers but as for now it's really good to go. I have driven it all over the place.

2005 Kia Sedona gremlins in the car.

2005 Kia Sedona LX

The a/c and heat do not work. I uses some oil and coolant frequently. The windows in the sliding doors have no way to open them. It has a lot of storage and passenger seats. There is a luggage rack. It is bad on wiper blades. It is hard to get to some of the areas for maintenance.

The pros and cons of our Kia Sedona.

2005 Kia Sedona LX

The turn radius is not ideal but overall it does its job and has stayed reliable since we purchased it. We have had some fuel issues. We went from having about 20 mpg when we purchased it to about 12-14 per gallon. We've done all standard upkeep and still our mpg is decreasing.

- Melanie A

Love my van. Sleek comfy & reliable.

2005 Kia Sedona LX

I actually really love this Van. Looks great. It's comfortable and roomy. Third row comes in handy. Lots of nice features, leather seats, great stereo, TV, automatic everything. Fills up for about 35. The controller is nice, easy steering. Very reliable no issues yet.

- Ony T

It is a very good everyday car

2005 Kia Sedona LX

Love how it saves gas and it has a lot of space. The a/c is really good. Although it is good on gas I wish it would save more gas. Parts for this vehicle and be to expensive and sometimes it is to hard to find the parts. The motors tend to break down or crack.

Removing Car starter and separating from engine

2005 Kia Sedona LX

overall the car is reliable and durable at times. The car has some strong points and weak points. The starter on the car breaks down a lot faster than most car and hard to reach in to remove the starter from the engine. But overall it's a good driving car
