2011 Kia Sedona LX 3.5L V6 from North America
This van has made me a fan of Kia
I have owned this vehicle for over 2 years, and I have put quite a few miles on it.
First I have to say I love the performance; after driving vans for many years and owning several, this is by far the most powerful engine I've had in a vehicle. The turning radius is better than most, and the seats are fairly comfortable (love the adjustable lumber support).
It seems to have enough cup holders and storage, and the plastic of the interior doesn't feel cheap to me.
Besides basic maintenance, oil changes and such, I have not had to do any repairs on the vehicle. I live in an area that's sparsely populated, and I do lots of interstate driving where exits and help is far and few in-between. I have felt safe and trust this van to take me where I want to go.
Bells and whistles were not important to me, although I have to say I was surprised how many options it came with considering it's the base model. Back up sensors, Bluetooth, steering wheel phone and audio controls, lit mirrors, sun visor extenders, and a flip down holder for sunglasses located above your head on the driver's side. The only thing I wish it had was an outside temp gauge.
Time will tell in reliability when it gets to 100k and beyond, but for now I am pleased with it and feel like I got a great deal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
