Possibly buying a Kia Sedona tomorrow and wondering if anyone knows anything to look out for, any common faults or any reasons why not to buy.

Thanks, Denise

nope - love my Sedona. The only probs we have had with it (as did a friend) the handbrake cable doesn't seem to be particuarly robust. My car can be a bit tempremental in cold weather. Other than that - I love it

Its great, especially the electric doors (only on the new one though), the tax is very high though £400 a year i think!

you pay £400 tax??? I only pay the going rates what ever it is £180 (or whatever)

oooh lucky you- electric doors,... I wish on mine

I looked at the tax - from what I could see theres a 2.7L V6 GS thats £405 but other models seem to be £215

I sold my old shape Sedona a few weeks ago and replaced it with a Peugeot 807. To cut a long story short the peugeot ended up in the garage twice in two weeks so we got our money back and ended up buying a new shape Sedona. It's a 56 plate and has the electric doors which are brilliant. The old sedona never gave us any problems so I'm hoping this will be a good car.

We got a Sedona 3 months ago and I love it. Its a 54 plate so still only about £200 for tax. The kids love it too. I have 3 car seats and 2 booster seats in mine when I'm working and they all fit comfortably. I agree with the handbreak cable issue, our sometime creeks like it's really straining.
Nothing has happened yet though, (touch wood).

We had a Sedona about 4 years ago. We had it from new and kept it for 2 years.
Fantastic car, never had a problem, good value for money.
Would defo have another.
