Kia Sedona, Van

Just an update, now our 2007 Sedona van has over 50,000 miles on it and still is getting over 20 mpg highway. Even with the bad for mpg oxigenated feul we have an studded winter tires we got 22 mpg on a trip across the state at an average of 75 mph. There are 2 mountain passes in that average as well. No problems except an air bag light that needed something under warrenty, and a leaking oil filter after the GM dealer doubled up the o rings on the filter. It is making some power steering noise I think (could also be alternator), will try changing that fluid come spring with an additive and hope it goes away! Overall we are very satisfied with this van but seening as how they stopped making them, next van will be one of those new high power 2011 Caravans after they hit the used car market, cause I don't buy new!

#162 of 163 2008 KIA Sedona EXTREMELY poor gas miliage

I purchase my 2008 KIA Sedona new in 2008. It used to get between 16.5 to 18 mpg in the city and about 22 mpg on the highway. A year ago ( 2012 ) it all of the sudden dropped to 11 to 12.5 mpg in the city.
The dealers are clueless idiots, and KIA Motor Company is worst that the KIA Dealer, totally rude and incompetent KIA Motor reps, have offered NO help and tell me that this is within the normal range of mpg. That is pure BS.

At least you got a few good years. I purchased my '08 new and it started at 10 mpg... they were HORRIBLE to me!!! Said it was clearly my driving skills! That's funny because I had traded a Yukon XL that I could get 15 out of in the city and 18-19 Hwy - pretty damned good for that vehicle!! Last year I was able to get rid of that piece of crap and now I'm the proud owner of a Toyota Sienna - and I LOVE IT!! Got the most basic model I could to keep the price down....because of course, Kia's have THE WORST trace in value of any car on the market - ZERO!! Take the plunge if you can and get rid of it!!
