"I have been plagued with driving issues from this van since purchase. I will be forced to sell it as I cannot afford to fix it anymore! I invested over $8000 and i've only owned it SIX months. Resale on it is $5000. Now it needs a timing chain ($600) and a new wheel bearing ($300) and that is IT. I'm DONE with you Kia."

"we enjoyed our 125000 miles in our ex model sedona . we just bought a new one. we performed regular service and replaced the alternator & a/c compressor (both after 100000 miles. I hope we get the same service from our new 2014 sedona. great price, ride & dependable. has pulled our boats on 4000 mile vacations through mountains, snow & 100 plus degree heat every year for a decade. I don't doubt the next owner will see 200000 miles turn on the odometer."

"I LOVED MY KIA UNTIL THE AC WENT OUT AT 70,000 MILES AND HAD TO BE REPLACED. ALSO DRIVER WINDOW WOULD NOT ROLL DOWN AND WAS costly TO FIX. THE ONLY OTHER PROBLEM IT TOOK A CITY BLOCK TO TURN IT. I LOVED IT UNTIL I EXPERIENCED THESE REPAIR BEFORE I THOUGHT I SHOULD. I INTEND TO DRIVE IT ANOTHER 5 YEARS. I AM NOT SURE WHAT I WILL BUY THEN. I REALLY LIKE THE KIA SOUL"

Pros: "Reliable, great value, warranty time period"

Cons: "Poor quality leather, poor mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I love my car. I've had it for almost 10 years and have always been able to depend on it. The problem is, I think Kia really made a mistake with the quality of the leather they used on this car. Terrible - flaking and cracking, really has no reason to do this unless they use really substandard leather. It looks like they painted the leather - looks great when you first buy it but beware - within 3-4 years it looks very wasted. Additionally, small details that make a big difference are overlooked. Plastic handles (inside and out) on the doors? They will eventually break and then it's about $200 to fix each one. For a minivan (assumed family car with kids), the quality of the door handles is unacceptable. Kia has a great warranty on their cars - for the value and reliability, they are worth it. However, as you near the 10 year mark, reconsider an upgrade. I started having small things break last year (9th year) and it has not stopped since then with some form of expense every month. I like to hang on to my cars for a bit. This one has been great, but now that it nears it's 10 years, it's time to see it go. No sense keeping a car that nears the expiration of its warranty and already has started costing me almost what a new car payment would be on a monthly basis. Great car if you want to keep for about 7 years. After that, let it go. Oh, and don't bother with the leather..."

"This has been a terrific van, plenty of power and has never left us stranded or failed to start. Never had to work on it. Gas tires and oil is all it ever needed. Brake pads of course but has never had any leaks or electrical issues and the sound system was great. I would definitely by another Kia"
