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.
Upgrade from an Outback
2015 Kia SedonaJoe Noel - Charlottesville, VA11/22/2016
We were cramming in 2 kids and a dog into an Outback before this so the extra room for us and all of our outdoor gear is a huge luxury. If you have small kids I highly recommend upgrading to the auto open side doors b'c the doors are a bit heavy for a small child to open. We have also owned a Jeep Commander which is similar in size and this drives way better and has lots more room. The only thing we had to give up was the 4-wheel drive. This is a great family vehicle at a price much cheaper than a Honda or Toyota.
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.
