2004 Kia Sedona LX 3.5 DOHC from North America
Tough abused van!
Just brakes and tires.
I work at a chevy/kia dealership and when our chevy venture shuttle van died at 200,000 miles, I was surprised when they grabbed a new kia sedona van off our lot as its replacement. I thought to myself "this will be a true test of kia quality or lack there of." You see, a shuttle van is driven by the service department to take customers back and fourth all day, everyday from 7am to 5pm. That is why after 20 months in service our sedona has over 100,000 miles on it. These are not easy miles... these are city and highway miles and this van gets the crap driven out of it. I know when I drive it I never hesitate to hit a huge pot-hole or fly over railroad tracks or put the petal to the metal from stoplight to stoplight (when the van is empty of course!) Everyone else who drives it shows no mercy either. Other than brakes and tires this van has been a trooper and I believe it will make it to 200k with no problems. Kia DOES make a quality product!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Nice bit of free advertising here for the boss and KIA eh?

I don't think so... just saying that the van has been a good one... if it was a piece of crap I'd say so... I could care less what you buy!

I bet your paying customers are impressed when they unjam their heads from the Kia's rooflining after another railway line foray.
