Kia 2005 Sedona

Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

Both sets of rear seats all come out. They were "light" to begin with, however, after having had the car for over 5 yrs. They have become increasingly "heavy" (old age) so I don't often take them out, unless I have to. I use a 4 wheeled trolley to move them from the car.lol I enjoy driving the car, it doesn't feel top heavy, its very stable, you can sling it around and throw it into the corners (if your inclined to do so. Modern Sedona's, come with reversing cams. I fitted my own, using after market products. As its such a long vehicle. Its necessary to have some sorta aid when reversing. My previous car was a Ford Mondeo Mk2 estate. The reason I bought the Kia was because I needed the height that I didn't have with the Mondy. So to conclude. It has everything I needed from an mpv, an more so, its also fitted with a drop down dvd player which u can use with infra red headphones. I like the styling, especially the ram air slot on the bonnet, gives it a "sporty look". It still seems modern, even after 5 yrs of ownership. I would like to try the newer models, which have the drop down seats which fold in the floor. But for now.......

How reliable do you find the car?

The usual wear and tear items. Heating pipes were spliced with rubber ones as they rusted (a common problem, apparently)

Does the car do everything you expected it to do?

Its big, comfortable, relatively quiet, powerful. With a high driving position on the rd. It feels more like a 4x4 than an mpv!
