2006 Kia Sedona Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Kia Sedona
I am very thankful to have a dependable vehicle.
I received this vehicle in 2017 from my son who owns a used car lot. It seats approximately seven adults comfortably. . . More if children are included. The seats are of a soft plushy fabric. . Second row of seats has a pass-through to the rear seats. The rear seat can be flattened and combined with the rear flat area to make a large storage area. I have not experienced any problems with the vehicle since my son or grandson pick it up regularly to service it. They do all the normal check-up and replace the tires as needed. They also replace the windshield wipers and rear wiper before they get shabby. It is a very comfortable ride and has been very reliable. I have never done a calculation of the mileage but it seems to be very good on fuel usage.
The stow and go seating is the best.
It is comfortable, nice looking and reliable. What I hate is the annoying noise it makes when I start it. A loud rattle. It is unnerving and annoying because I cannot diagnose it. Makes me worry it is an expensive fix. But it has taken us to the east coast twice and d. C. Once and a lot of other places in between and has never failed us. And we drove it hard! I do like that it is reliable. I would not be afraid to drive this car anywhere. It has over 200k miles now.
It is a cusp year car so it uses parts from 2005-2007. It makes it hard.
I have had ton of mechanical problems with this vehicle in particular. After the mechanical problems had been rectified, mostly under warranty, it improved and my opinion of the car improved. However, I don't thing that I would buy another minivan from Kia simply because of the issues I have had in the past. The van was a lemon and there was something wrong with it a least every month for five years.
Great family car that gets you all the places you need to go
This minivan is great for space, drives well, gets good gas mileage, is comfortable, and hard options for upgrades. I missed having power doors. Mine is beginning to break down. The hood shocks no longer work. The passenger side sliding door power lock is broken and no longer works. Random issues keep popping up. But it also had over 150k miles, ssd o it's had a great life.
The many issues I have had with Kia.
Kia is a difficult brand to work with. You are required to mainly use a dealership to have an parts fixed. I had to pay over $100 to have a key fob activated for the door. I have had issues with the computer system and the car wouldn't start. The electronic doors no longer work and had to be switched to manual. One positive that an over 10 year old car has no rust on the body.
Low maintenance, hard running.
My van is called "mama van". I bought her in 2007 brand new. She has never failed me. She has hauled people, camping gear, animals. We gone on large travel trips and she always gets us there and back safely. Kia has been a good brand for us. This is our second Kia. They are built tougher than one would imagine. I would definitely consider owning another one.
Kia Sedona rocks! Low maintenance good value for the money.
I got this vehicle for the passenger room and Versatility. We camp and hike as well as go on extended driving trips to visit family. This car is tough and reliable and has yet to let me down. I bought it new and never really had to use the great warranty that came with it. Overall, I would recommend this van to any family looking for a tough minivan.
Good value for basic transportation.
It is the basic model which is beneficial because there aren't as many high-tech systems to go wrong and cost a lot to repair. There have been too many recalls on this year and model making we worried about It's production quality. Overall It's a good cheap van but more care should have been taking in production.
The seats fold down into the floor so it has a lot of room for moving things. If you are not moving things and the seats are up you have enough room for seven adults to sit comfortably and the ability to get in and out without bumping into each other.
It doesn't have enough power. When I hit the gas it takes it's time going to my 2003 GMC Yukon XL. When I hit the gas in the Yukon it goes fast. I like that the KIA has everything automated, auto open/close sliding doors and rear hatch. I can also open them with the remote which is handy in the rain.
Starts the first time every time.
It is an ok car, no much in repairs that is one reason to like it.. But the leather seats are ripping at the seams. I just never really wanted this car in the first place. It has been very reliable, except then the alternator went out, other than that it has been great. Over all I would recommend it.
