I had a friend that was running a Kia Sedona. He ran it up to 200.000. BUT every time it went wrong all the parts were on back order. And had to wait up to 4 to 5 weeks for the parts to be shipped over. Don't know if it's improved at all. Don't seem to keep major parts on the shelf

A friend of mine had an i800 as a taxi, terrible mpg, heavy doors and off the road for weeks whilst awaiting parts. He was told they were building a huge parts distribution centre somewhere in the uk and things would improve. He sold it after 2years. (this was 18 months ago)
