About a year and a half ago, my family realized we needed more space in a vehicle - at least a 7 passenger. The problem was that we had the need, but not all the money. Large SUVs quickly went out the window, and most of the other minivans that were rated highly would have to be very used to get into our price range. Then we found the Sedona, which was affordable in newer models with less miles. But here's the best part - it was still a great car. Having owned it for a month now, we are really pleased with our choice. We have taken it on long trips and used it to transport large items already. We are pleased with the amount of comfortable space, and the flexible arrangements of that space. It drives really nicely too, with good acceleration and handling. But what mostly sold us was the price and the waranty. You get a lot of car for what you spend, and I do not feel like we compromised on any of the features we wanted.
Van runs well, has good pickup, large capacity hatch. We like the stow and go back seats. You do feel more road bumps than some other vehicles, but the van handles well. Roomy interior with plenty of cupholders. I wish the CD player held more than one CD. Our first non-American made vehicle. I'd still prefer to buy American, but the price, the reliability and the availability of the vehicle were the best fit for us at the time.
At first, I was a little skeptical about purchasing a Kia brand car because I have never owed a Kia. But when my Oldsmobile Silhouette broke down, I need another van rather quickly because I have 3 small children. Well let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. This Kia Sedona handles very well on the road and it has plenty of room for my kids and all their stuff. This van has been a pleasure to drive.
