Great value for smart shoppers, better bang for the buck over Toyota, Dodge, Honda vans
Would be nice if it had an outdoor thermometer and a trip computer.
I purchased the short wheelbase Sedona a few years ago and really like it. Like it so much that we just got a 2011 long base LX, and it's great. Zippy handling with plenty of feedback. Back up camera, bluetooth, rear sensors, power dual slide doors, XM radio all standard. 10 year powertrain warranty. Only a fool would pay $5,000 more for the same thing from Honda, Dodge or Toyota.
No, I am not a dealer either. Just an experienced minivan driver.
I've had two Caravans (transmissions and A/C go out at 70k miles) and traded in my Toyota Sienna to get the Kia. The Sienna was like a big sled in the snow. No traction even with new tires. Not safe.
Kia is up and coming. It's just the way to go for the smart shopper.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
