You have an AWFUL lot of posts on this sedona - have you considered using it as a boat anchor ? Don't remember if you said what year it is or mileage, but you are looking at an awful lot of repair work f this is an older car - perhaps time to call it a lemon and write it off, as so many other Kia owners have ?

Its an 2005 Kia Sedona w/98.000 miles and I'm still making payments on it. I still owe about

$4,000 on it. What would suggest I do. Do you think that the dealership would be willing

to trade it in ,as is?

Looks like blue book on this might be about $4000 on the average - and in condition yours is in, probably less than that. you didn't say what you owe on it still, but I seriously doubt deler would give you more than $2000 on a trade-in.

I don't know what I would do - but then I do basically all my car maintenance and repair myself, so my economic picture is quite different than yours.

I previously gave you the brake/rotor cost info - new plugs and coil(s) commonly cost about $250-350 as part of an overall tuneup. Shocks and struts, assuming there is no damage to the strut mounts themselves, probably about $100-150 per pair cost (aftermarket brands), about $250 per pair installed.

The ones that affect your driving or make the engine run poorly would be most important - usually brakes, shocks if handling is going bad, plugs and coil(s) if engine is running rough or hard starting.
