I didn't expect this. Not out of a KIA. We had several cars on our list and when push came to shove, the Sedona won out. The car rides well and surprisingly quiet. The seats are a slight bit stiff but had no issues on a 6 hour road trip with the kids. This thing has more airbags than any other car we looked at and had available restraints for both of our carseats in the middle row. The captains chairs are nice and the stowaway back row is awesome. No more dragging the seats in and out, just stow them. The KIA was several thousand cheaper as slightly used and IF you can find one, you'll save a ton. I wish it had more power ports (fixed with an adapter) and a couple more cup holders but if that's all that is wrong, I consider it a victory. Would I buy this car again? Everytime. No regrets.

This is my replacement minivan
2010 Kia SedonaBJ from Atlanta - Metro Atlanta, GA07/11/2011
I was looking for another white minivan after my 2000 Chevy Venture was totaled in an accident. I loved that van and was hoping to find a wonderful replacement which would last as long with minimal problems. I had owned a Dodge Caravan in the past and was extremely disappointed that I needed major work done on its engine at only 88k, so Chrysler was a NO!
I compared the 2010 Sedona to a 2006 Honda Odyssey (they were the same price range & color). Although the Kia didn't have the power sliders and driver's seat the Honda did, the Honda had 3 times the mileage and had considerable wear on the seats. For the price, and based on Consumer Reports ratings, I chose the Kia, and I know I made the right choice.
My only frustration is with the seat cloth. I have tan, where I previously had gray, and the tan tends to show dirt more. I wish they were made in a sturdier fabric. I did buy seat covers for the front to reduce the issue, but that really is a minor concern.
I did have to bring my van to the dealership for an irritating humming coming from the fuel pump that started around 18k. The dealership was outstanding and replaced the entire fuel pump to alleviate the noise. I give the Kia dealership a high 5 for service & attitude!
