My wife and I just got married, and we have three kids between us, from previous marriages. We needed a larger vehicle so each child had their own space. We had our hearts set on a particular 3-row suv, also of a import nature. But when we drove this, the search was over!
I've never driven a minivan that yearned to stretch its legs so eargerly. It begs to let all of it's 250 horses loose with vigor. The handling is impressive. It doesn't drive like a minivan. You almost forget taht it's as long as it is, until you glance in the rearview and see the other rows behind you. The ride is smooth and quiet.
This was a real deal! We found this 2008 with only 15,575 miles on it and with the deal we were given, we just couldn't find a way to pass it up. Had we waited to go the next morning, it would have been gone, so we ended up the last customers of the night.
There are enough cup holders to entertain an entire dance company. The leg room is impressive for both rear rows. The seats are firm, but very comfortable for long trips, without causing fatigue. And for once, a car company actually put the lumbar support in your lumbar area!
I have but two complaints... The engine, as powereful and energetic as it is, adds more to the road noise than the tires or road surface. And the sounds system is great for CD's, but it's sound quality wains a bit with the AM/FM tuner. It could use a little more punch. But then again, it's easy to cure with an aftermarket head unit and speakers.
We love the Sedona. I'd often dismissed Kia in the past, for lack luster reviews and reports of being underpowered. I'm sold so far. I'm even considering replacing my old car with a new Kia.
