      I currently own a 2003 Sedona LX and I absolutely love it! I noticed a few improvements for the new interior. Stow and go seating, I also they changed the cruise control switches from the dash to the steering wheel. On the down side, looks more boxy and more like a Nissan Quest.

      We own a 2003 Kia Sedona and absolutely love it! We have three children, ranging in age and height to as tall as 6'1" and we all fit comfortably, which really has come in handy with all the traveling we do. The Kia offers the necessary options that truly count, and we really like the set up of the console (which reminds me of our Lexus SUV). Quality? Definitely. Many car dealers tried to convince us not to buy Kia, and we are glad we didn't listen. I'm ready for the 2006 and fully intend to buy nothing but Kia vans from here on. As a side note, my parents have owned Dodge and Chevrolet minivans, both having problems and neither being very comfortable for long trips. The Kia looks like an SUV with the comforts of what a minivan should have. And to make it that much better, what a price?!?

      Will the gas mileage be better and how about the 2nd row windows, will they roll down like on the Toyota Sienna?

      For some reason, the front profile sort of reminds me of the Citreon C8. http://www.in.gr/auto/parousiaseis/foto_big/in_citroen_C8_04.jpg

      I have a 2003 Sedona LX, and am approaching 90K miles. I do a LOT of driving in my van, along with using it for business, and I would recommend Kia Sedonas against ANY minivan on the market. Mine is nimble, comfortable and relatively economical. As soon as the 2006 is available I'll buy one of those.

      Sedona grows up, gets bigger, more mature. Bet it gets more expensive too. Minivan buyers are very price sensitive, and while Sedona is getting much, much better, it will still have to compete with price bottom-feeders like the Dodge Caravan and Chevrolet Uplander. Sedona is certainly better than the first Kia effort. Oh yeah, Hyundai gets a version of the new Sedona that they will call Entourage. http://www.vehiclevoice.com will be tracking customer response to these new entries to the minivan market as they arrive.

      What about the price??Will KIA keep the price of new sedona at the competion level because this is a main factor of success of previous Sedona (value).

      Is it still a couple hundred pounds heavier than it's competitors? I seem to remember that the last Sedona had copious amounts of steel reinforcement in the structure to keep it stiff, as if the Koreans took the lazy way out engineering the sucker.

      Any word on the standard '4x8 sheet of plywood' test? How about weight? The old Sedona was significantly smaller than my Odyssey (no 4x8's in the old one) but weighed several hundred pounds more. Really sapped the power and killed the handling. Nothing exciting about the exterior, but not offensive either. The interior stinks (well, at least the dash) with the fake wood (that looks bad even in that small picture) and the sea of buttons in the center stack.

      I have a 2003 Sedona EX. Except for a few minor exterior *bumper paint* problems I have nothing but praise for the vehicle. I will reserve judgement on the dash and other interior changes until I get my hands on one. This vehicle is the first one I've had with leather seats and WILL NOT be the last. The leather is high quality and easy to clean and maintain. I would like to see an AW drive for towing, but you take what you get. When the '06 is available and they have the model I want, I'll buy another, in a heart beat.
