Kia Sedona Gas Mileage

The Kia Sedona went into production in 1999 and was redesigned for the 2006 model year. While the Sedona’s gas mileage ratings are in step with the competition, at 16 city and 23 highway miles per gallon (MPG), fuel-efficiency is not the seven-seat Sedona’s biggest draw. Rather, it is the Sedona’s safety record and affordability that inspire a great many buyers. Kia proudly states that “the Sedona is the first and only minivan ever to earn both a 5-star crash safety rating” from the U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) and “be named “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.” (The Hyundai Entourage is based on the Sedona.)/p>

The 2008 Kia Sedona is equipped with a 3.8 liter V-6 that produces 250 horsepower (HP) and 253 foot pounds of torque. While a turbo-diesel is not currently available in US versions of the Sedona, an economical DOHC 2.9 liter CRDi turbo-diesel, producing a generous 343 foot pounds of torque is available abroad. To provide reassurance of the Sedona’s reliability and longevity, Kia provides a 10 year, 100,000 mile limited power train warranty and other significant warranties.

Note: the EPA tweaked their testing procedure, starting with the 2008 model year, with the end result being that the 2008 MPG estimates are now lower than previous years. As always, YMMV.

I am looking for a older Mini Van, but i am looking for a good gas saver. What is the gas mileage of the 2002 Kia Sedona LX? And what recall have you had, with that year van?

My 76 year old friend has a 2004 Sedona. He is getting 10 mpg. no one has found a problem with it. Any suggestions?

Larry,
The car is not capable of getting 10MPG without a check engine light being on. Have your dealer scan the ECM and look at the fuel trims. If they are in specs then it is what it is. Driving habits, warm up times, ambient temps, fuel quality and the weight of the driver’s foot are the main factors.
