Big, roomy, mines reliable, reasonable on fuel if driven sensibly. I get on avarage 35/gal deisel. Comfortable to drive
Poor turning circle, paint job is weak, genuine spares ar expensive if fitted during service. Kia Assist program will do there best to help in a roadside breakdown but be aware they have to be CHASED as they are not good at comunicating back.
I Bought a Kia Sedona SX TDI new in 2002, now has 50,000 miles on her. 2 sets of brake pads so far but on average 30 k miles per set, mainly motorway driving though. If your going to tour or drive long distance it's great, not so good round town although my LX 2.9 CRDI is very nifty.
Servicing can work out expensive and watch the dealers they can try it on, ask to see worn pads etc.
Warrenty claims so far include, rear brake cyliders ( leaked), VDO radio cassette 3 times, tailgate rust twice, ( should have been done right first time ), handbrake cables, front suspension roll bar bushes perished, and be careful when changing wheels as I managed to snap a wheen nut off with the tools supplied. To be fair the dealer I use has investigated any complaint at the service, best way or I won't pay him!!!!!!
I like the car and so does anyone who has travelled in it.
