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.

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.
Good car not sure of battery
2015 Kia SedonaDavid Langenderfer - Columbus, IN11/14/2017
I like the car just a little concerned about the battery. The 2 year old car had an aftermarket battery already. According to Kia it requires a "KIA" battery as we found out it left us stranded a few times with a dead battery. Kia replaced with a Kia battery and haven't had an issue in 3 weeks. Other than that the car has been great.
