I had been dreading the idea of purchasing a car for a few months, and Amy, the salesperson I worked with, along with the rest of the staff, helped prove my fears unfounded. Everyone here was great, and I will recommend anyone interested in a Kia to this dealership.

If you need three rows of seats every day, and do not have $65K for a new Suburban, minivan is the ONLY way to go. We had downsized from 2005 Yukon XL to a 2014 Pathfinder, and that was fine for a while. But when surprise baby #4 came along, we realized the limitations of the CUV. Access to third row was a daily nuisance (constant flipping and folding of seats - easier in the Pathfinder than most of the competition, but still a thing that has to be done), and most importantly, cargo space in the way back is very limited. We took our annual Florida trip with two adults, four kids. Luggage stuffed to the gills, and a cargo platform hanging off the trailer hitch for extra capacity. We had some serious saggy butt. It handled alright, but clearly was not designed to actually carry a full load of people AND stuff. This was the trip that convinced me it was time to return the lease a bit early and get into a van. Wife wasn't quite ready to go dork mobile, but she eventually admitted if there was a really nice van than looked okay and had all the features she wanted, she would consider it. The Sedona and new Pacifica made her very short list. 3 minutes walking around the Sedona and marveling at the space and luxury finishes, and she was sold before I could even test drive. This one evidently has a bit less room behind the third row than Odyssey and Sienna, but it is downright cavernous compared to even the biggest CUVs (Chevy Traverse). And loading the baby is so much easier with sliding doors. These are all things I knew, but Mrs. Cool needed to live with her Pathfinder for a few months before coming around. We went for the SXL Tech 8-seater in dark blue - it's actually a really nice looking vehicle, and not just "for a van". I've stored away that 2nd row "jump seat" to create an aisle for two of the big to easily walk through to the third row. But I did want that 8th seat, just in case we have an extra passenger (grandma) for a long trip, or perhaps we will want to fold half of the third row to max out cargo space for beach gear next summer. And, I didn't really need the sun roofs, which we never used in the last car, and which they say compromise headroom in the third row where two of our growing young teens reside. Also didn't really care about the "lounge seats". One of them just has a baby carrier on top, and honestly there's not enough leg room back there to really utilize the "ottoman" feature for a teenager, unless he scoots all the way back and steals all the leg room from the third row. Just not something we would ever get any use out of, while the 8th seat has potential uses. Anyway, this is quite simply the most luxurious vehicle we've ever owned. The interior materials are beautiful, and I hope they are durable as well. I'd prefer darker leather, but other long term tests I read say they hold up well. The gadgets are "Sofa King" cool - I've never had many of these features before. Xenon headlights, automatic high beams (this really works!), radar cruise control (again, this actually works great - it can't do stop and go traffic, but it will take you down to about 5 mph and back up again), blind spot monitors, birds-eye-view camera for parking. I don't love the chrome wheels, although they look sharp it's going to be a lot of effort for the boys to keep them clean :) The bluetooth audio doesn't seem to work with the newest iPhones, you have to plug in to USB to get any sound from your phone. Nor does it read texts as it says. Wish it was apple car play instead of UVO. But the navigation is decent. I thought Nav was stupid, since that is free on everyone's phone anyway. But having it integrated into the dash is nice, and its directions on the info screen between the gauges driver side is cool. When we get the XM activated, will see how good it is at traffic. Cooled seats are a Texan's best friend. I'm 6'3" and have plenty of leg and knee room, even with the bulky baby carrier behind me, and his seat scooted forward a bit to give the third row boys some extra space. Wife is 5'1", so memory settings for seat and mirrors were an essential feature for us. We had the dealer install remote start, and it works fine with the factory key fob, though it will only run for 30 seconds once a door has been opened. We had been used to starting up the AC and taking our time loading groceries. Instead, you have to jump up front and hit the ignition if you want it to keep running, but that's a minor complaint. The ride is very quiet, and it really smooths out with a full load. Enough power, transmission is responsive. Steering is very light at low speeds but firms up nicely for the highway. The price was very fair, lots of features for the money. I am a little bit hesitant about Kia long term reliability in general, but we will be covered b2b for the duration of the lease, so I was willing to give it a chance. Overall, we are both very pleased with this vehicle.

great looking minivan

We bought our van right when it came out. It's been a great since. Couple little issues such as rear blind hook, sliding door squeaks. Well built and great value. It feels like a big SUV when we're driving and it has all the amenities like many luxury cars.

Should have bought sooner

With small kids this is a dream. I previously had a 2015 Dodge Journey and I'll tell you what, the Sedona is a luxury ride compared to that. The Sedona has so much room, easy to get my kids in and out of car seats, the air conditioning works excellent in the back seats which is so important for me since I live in Phoenix, AZ. We have the 8 passenger, so we never need to have the rear seats up and that leaves up with a lot of cargo room. It rides smooth, handles nicely and is comfortable. My only complaints are, I already had one of the motors replaced on the rear sliding door. (mine is a 2016 with 18,000 miles) Without a warranty it would have been over $1,000 at the dealership I went to. Also, The sound system is beyond cheap.. totally poor quality & there is no navigation and no power lift-gate (which I feel should be standard on a minivan) All in all my husband and I were those people that said we would never drive a mini van yet we are both bummed we didn't purchase this before we wasted money when we bought the dodge.

Sedona Arizona and Sedona the Car- LOVE BOTH!

I think this automobile is well thought out and well-built, so far a joy to own and operate! I like the interior style and trim. Maybe I will get asked for an update on my review in 10K miles and I will have a different opinion. For now, it has enough good stuff to make me feel like I was smart to buy a Kia, and this was a good pick. It seems solid plus I also like that JD Powers has been tracking quality metrics and it has trended up and up and is right up there with the the top the 4 BEST in class. That means Kaizen and Six Sigma. That means serious business.

Between the highway noise and the rattling it is the worse car we have ever owned. We owned it for a little over a year and put on 17 K miles (mostly highway miles.) Went to trade it in at a Kia dealer and lost over $15K in value. Was looking to trade back to a Sorento which we had and traded in for this vehicle. As far as options goes it has it all. Would never own another Sedona.

Sadona is the best value period!

It will be loaded with extras that you have to pay more for in other manufacturers vehicles. What ever version you get it will give you value and reliability, this is just the most practical van you could hope for.

We owned our Sedona for a month but quickly grew tired of it and then eventually replaced it. We initially purchased it because it was more current than the Grand Caravan and more affordable, better driving, with a better second row solution than the Odyssey. Some important missing safety features I later kicked myself for missing that I was careful to check on other vans was NO third row LATCH connectors and no daytime running lights (DRLs). DRLs are standard on most cars today and the dealer tried to lie to us and tell us parking lights were DRLs. I find it ridiculous a FAMILY van is missing third row latch connectors. Even the aging Grand Caravan is standard with the above. We had the LX model with the Convenience Package, not a cheap van, yet it had a very small center 4.3" (I believe) LCD in this day and age was a joke to all that entered the vehicle. We had quality issues with the power steering and fuel system that were intermittent and the dealer could not help us with. The steering after 1000 miles softened giving it a less precise driving feel, the plus side is we started driving slower since we trusted the handling less. In favor of the Sedona we found the second row solution much better than the Odyssey's lift out solution. The engine was also stronger than what was in the Odyssey making highway passing easier. Fuel economy was the lowest of any minivan I have put significant miles on. Handling was similar between the two vans. This van proved to the be the worst car we have ever purchased and probably our worst financial mistake, even though it cost us we are so happy to be out of it. We had not given the new Pacifica a try during the first round since it was so new when we were shopping. I suggest giving it a try, we were amazed how much better van it is in every respect, so happy now.

Catchy Title!

At 13K miles I can say that this is a terrific mini-van - very quiet - comfortable and enjoyable to drive - with one exception; the brakes. At 11K miles they started giving the audible and sensory pulsation. I was enroute from Florida to NH and contacted my Kia dealer in Concord, NH. Team Kia made room for me and machined the front rotors under warranty, solving the problem. The most rewarding aspect of my choice of min-vans is the frequent comments of my passengers about how comfortable and quiet this car is on the highway. Be sure to drive one of these before you buy one of the traditional brands.

We just purchased the 2016 Sedona SX with the entertainment package and some other options. Wow, first off this minivan has the most quiet ride of all minivans we drove, period!! And it doesn't look like a minivan, it has a bolder stance and just down right cooler looking! Tons of features! Love the cooled seats.. Navigation system is one of the best we have had in any of our cars! Easy to get in and out of with three Children. Memory driver seat is great because my wife is 5' and I'm 5' 10".... This minivan has too many awesome features to list. We purchased this mainly for an extra vehicle and it will used mostly for vacation road trips. The only downside and it's really not a negative is that you may need some time to figure out all the technology that it has. I can predict this will be the number 1 minivan on the market once people give Kia the opportunity. We also have a Kia Optima SXL and it's been perfect in all ways. Will follow up in a few months.

Get ready for a very noisy ride

Very disappointed in the ride. On the highway the tire and wind noise is so great that you need to blast it out with the radio. It shakes and rattles like a used 10K vehicle. At 13,000 mile had to have brake rotors turned. Worst Mini Van we ever purchased.

Love, love, love the PARDY VAN!!!!!

We have the BEST minivan on the market! We have the Sedona SX Limited with the technology package, dual sunroofs, and all the bells and whistles. Instead of going for the eighth seat we went with the second row with foot rests. We've been on a few road trips already and the foot rests were of great value. The heated and cool seats are amazing! The driver seat contours to my body which makes driving very comfy. I've only been in the passenger seat twice but when I was in it it felt just as good as the driver's seat. The power sliding doors are heaven sent. Also the power life gate is a must if you have children. The leather is very easy to clean spills off of, bonus!! The gas mileage is good compared to other vehicles, city about 19 and straight highway 25-28. Overall this vehicle is a must if you have a family or are starting one. You won't be disappointed with this minivan.

Could not have wished for a better minivan!!!!

We absolutely LOVE our Sedona! We spent a lot of time looking at minivans and trying to find the right one that would be safe for our family. After driving the Sedona we knew it was what we needed. It is always a little scary buying a new car but we have had it for a few months now and are still incredibly happy with it. I actually told my husband the other day that after owning this I will probably always want a minivan it is so comfortable.

2016 KIA SEDONA EX rules the roost.

This is our first experience of what was called a mini van, but what now is called a MPV, ( multi purpose vehicle ). We only considered the safer MPV's, Honda, Toyota and KIA, the other's were considered too much of a health hazard to their passengers. All 3 we tested drove very well, the KIA Sedona just has had a firmer, more confident driving experience. The fuel economy of the Honda was the best of the bunch, but was let down by the poor access to the 3 row seating, very dated interior, and the price would be considerably more to get some the basic standard features of the KIA. So our choice was between the Toyota and the KIA in the end. The Toyota is good, just dash board looks and feels, if come from a different generation in the past, and price for a similar spec was nearly $5000 more than the KIA. The Sedona just has a modern design, inside and out, taken the best features of some the other's, and made them better still, then backed by a ten year warranty, became a easy choice. Update, we have had the Sedona now for 6 month and 9000 miles, and is still problem free.

Highly recommended car

I would get the 2016 Kia Sedona. It is an awesome car. It has the highest safety standards. Very comfortable. The blind spot detection, rear view parking camera, and rear cross traffic alert are a must when you drive a minivan. It does not have navigation, but you can get it on Amazon and hook up on your car without any difficulties for $130. One thing my wife loves about the Kia Sedona is that it is not as ugly as the Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey. I have not driven a Honda or Toyota equivalent, but I like the Kia Sedona because of the price and its highest safety ratings. I think a Toyota or Honda equivalent is around $3000 more than the Kia Sedona. Korean technology is going to be one of the best in the world. It will be ranked in the top 4 with the United States, Japan, and Germany. Already, Korea has the best wireless technology in the world since many of the components in the Apple iphone is made by the Samsung group. Koreans are a very jealous people. Kia does want to be like the Samsung group as a global renowned company in automobiles manufacturing. I am very sure Kia will catch up with Honda and Toyota in a short time frame. I saw the Tesla Model X for $150,000. This is the only model which can fit my family of 4. It is 5 to 7 times more expensive than the Kia Sedona. I am spending about $60 per month in gasoline expenses. Let's say I spend $1000 per year on gasoline to make the math easier. If I continue to drive my Kia Sedona for 100 years, the Kia Sedona + gasoline is still a better bargain compared to the Tesla. This is extremely sad even though the gas mileage for the Kia Sedona is around 15 to 20 miles per gallon.

Great minivan.

We have been very impressed. Ride is excellent. Handles like a car. Looks as good as a SUV. We had a 2012 Honda Odyssey Elite previously (lease). This Sedona SX is better. Ride is better. More tech inside. Definitely enjoying the surround view camera, the vented seats, the automatic high beam (useful when driving on a mountain road not having to worry about flipping the lights when paying attention to the curves). These are features not available on another 8 seater minivan currently. Also we like the fact that Kia comes with a much more reasonable warranty. Honda and Toyota both has only 3 year 36K mile warranty - this is low in the industry. And ... to those who says Honda and Toyota don't break ... guess again ... they do! Our 2012 Honda Odyssey had transmission problem - fortunately just before the warranty is up. That is the reason we are not keep it beyond our lease. Very glad with our 2016 Kia Sedona SX right now (8 passenger tech package). The only grip I have is: why Kia doesn't make a 8 seater loaded and with the panaramic sunroof? Our $40K Sedona is loaded - but has no sunroof? Fortunately my wife hates the Sun and does not like to have sunroof. I on the other hand would wish that being available as an option. The SXL comes only in 7 seat. Why? Otherwise we would have bought a SXL. Update: Apparently the SXL comes in 8 seat now. Wish we had known about that. Vehicle still running great. We had been very happy about the purchase. Drives better than our prior 2012 Honda Odyssey with a more upscale interior. I am also happy to read that Kia now has better reliability than Honda according to a 2016 Consumer Reports article.
