The Sedona has the size and features of the best minivans and outscores competing models. It rides comfortably, has a refined powertrain and a flexible interior. Handling is sound, but the steering feels vague. Our EX had a DVD player, heated leather seats, power adjustable pedals, automatic climate control, sunroof, power sliding doors and a power liftgate as options.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"It's a van and handles as such"

Anonymous, OK (2006 Kia Sedona)

"Good power & handling especially on highway. Poor a/c."

RICHARD V., ON (2006 Kia Sedona)

"Good acceleration"

PAUL R., MI (2006 Kia Sedona)

"The first year or two it was pretty decent. However, after that it becomes more sluggish and sloppy as time has gone on."

Mark M., OR (2006 Kia Sedona)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The Sedona is not as quiet as some vans. At freeway speeds you have to crank up the radio or music quite loud. It has a great ride. The seats are not comfortable when reclined but they are just fine when in upright position. The upholstery really attracts lint and pet hair."

Anonymous, NC (2006 Kia Sedona)

"comfortable, reasonably good visibility of surroudings"

Anonymous, WA (2006 Kia Sedona)

"comfortable captain chairs leads to pleasant ride; van has good acceleration"

Anonymous, NJ (2006 Kia Sedona)


Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"good value of the money"

Anonymous, WA (2006 Kia Sedona)

"When we purchased this Kia in 2006, there was nothing else like it offered by any other manufacturer. We looked closely at GM (Buick, Chevrolet), and Dodge minivans, but the Kia Sedona outclassed them all, and at a great price from the dealer!"

Anonymous, UT (2006 Kia Sedona)

"It seemed like a good deal up front when compared to CR's usual minivan front runners. However we have poured more money and time into keeping it running than we had ever anticipated. They also don't tell you upfront that it requires Kia specific sized replacement parts (e.g. Tires, wheels, oil filters, etc.) that most other service providers do not have."

Mark M., OR (2006 Kia Sedona)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
