Bought this mainly to carry myself and several larger RC model aircraft on almost daily 60 mile round trips to flying site. Grew to really like this vehicle. At 85K miles its been perfect in reliability. I appreciate the smooth acceleration, ride and excellent handling. My gas mileage has been a constant 24 mpg. OEM Yokohoma (? spelling) tires got noisier and noisier as they wore down, so replaced them early at about 49K miles with Generals which are much quieter with no loss of handling. Only thing I really miss is the fold into the floor center row seats found on the Chryslers and Honda minivans. I just take mine out and leave them home in the garage but would rather have the flexability of being there if I need them. Folding up against the front seats is available, but takes up too much needed room in my application. Would I buy it again? In a heartbeat.

One dependable comfortable box

Very happy eith this vehicle. Only minor downside is engineering for drive/acle (apparently) results in slight pull to left during acceleration. We'd buy it again if we had to do it over again.

Very Nice !

we drove several of these til the dealer came up with the colors my wife wanted; on a blustery crosswind day, we compared Sedona to the 4 & 6 cylinder Siennas & the Oddysy in a 6+ mile run on I-70 & a winding, hilly no-shoulder 2-lane. the Sedona & Toyotas were very good & close, the Honda conspicuously less controllable in the twistys & harder to keep in a straight line in freeway crosswinds. We now have 20k on the car & changed to a decent tire-Cooper CS4 at 15k. Drives beautifully. OTOH the autolock/unlock is an idiotic security nightmare, hoodlums will love it, you are a sitting duck when you park. . July 2016 update: the idiotic auto lock/unlock control is still a security nightmare [ALL doors unlock EVERY TIME it's put in park] & the dealership is hopeless/worthless to fix it. Doubt if they give a flip. OTOH the window down-door-stop dangerous idiocy [manual sliding door only opened part way if window was down a little] was an easy fix. - just remove the stop. This was important as if you opened it vigorously it bounced off the stop & closed -very hard!!- on adult or kid's fingers/hand/arm/head... ER visit or worse!! Options issue: in 2012 heated mirrors only came w/over-priced packages with junk we didn't want. An important plus is the excellent all-direction visibility , thanks to large unobstructed windows, is better than ANY other van we've driven, then, or since then. Luckily, once you are rolling down the road it's a great car, so we're keeping it. However, thanks to the locks & heated mirror issue, we are very unsure about buying a KIA in the future. I would suggest if, in one of these vans, you are attacked in a parking lot or hurt by the sliding door, you contact a lawyer.

Good Mini Van

I'm not a soccer mom writing this review. After reading reviews for several mini van makers, and having a friend who just retired a Kia Rio with 346,200 miles on it, that swayed me to the Kia Sedona. Yea, its not a Honda or a Toyota. But it is a surprisingly great family ride. I'm only sorry that Kia has decided to make 2012 the final year for production for the Sedona.

Great buy

As a 71 year old I never thought that I would own a mini-van. But three grandchildren under 4 and a 96 year old mother-in-law changed all that. So I went shopping in late '11 dead set on getting an Oddysey. Reality set in quickly as price and an unwillingness of four Honda dealerships to deal eliminated that choice. And lucky that was for I had a blast shopping around - something I had not needed to do for my previous five cars. My final choice was an easy one spurred by a great deal, friendly dealership, and fully loaded Kia Sedona at about 12k less than the desired Oddysey. It is now ten months and almost 20k miles into the vehicle and I love it.

Don't buy this car unless you are sure!!!!!

The quality of this car is much worse than I expected. Seat material is thin, electronics unresponsive and unpredictable and the brakes are a safety hazard Kia will not own up to. They allow small pebbles from the road to get into the calipers and impede proper braking application. They call this an environmental situation and will not address it as a design flaw. The dealer won't fix it on his dime either. I have only 1800 miles on the car and it has been in twice for repairs. I live on a paved road! I can't afford to keep paying for brake repairs. Be ready for some disappointments if you buy this car and have previously owned a quality built vehicle,

2012 Sedona

We traded our 2011 Soul for this Sedona. The soul was a great little car but it was difficult for us to get in and out especially with artificial knees. We absolutely love our Sedona, we have the power package on it which gives you a lot of extras. We average round about driving 23-24 mpg. Not as good as the soul but it sure is a lot easier to get in and out of. The engine is very powerful and will throw you in the back seat if you kick the gas. It has a six speed transmission and we don't even feel it shift. At seventy mph it runs around 1600-1700 rpms. That in itself saves the engine greatly over times. With GM, and Ford quit making vans you only have a very few choices. Love it.

WHAT THE BLEEP HAPPEND TO THE MPG ?!!?!

The sticker states that this minivan get 18 city and 25 hwy, which I expected after purchasing the vehicle. After 2 months and over 1200 miles the best I've been able to get out of it is 16.5 MPG. For a 21.1 size gallon tank, I become extremely aggravated when I can't even drive 300 miles before I'm in need of a fill up. I felt that this was a rock solid value when I purchased it. Everything else about the van meets or exceeds my expectations. But if I wanted such horrendous gas mileage performance I should have just purchased an SUV!

Good Minivan for the Price

A good basic minivan. I was looking for a basic family transportation vehicle which I plan to drive till it drops, so trade in value is not a huge thing for me. I'm hoping to get the car up and over 150k miles during my time of ownership. The Kia fit the bill perfectly. My dealership was very fair and upfront with all the numbers. Nothing was hidden and everything was clearly explained. Received great financing at 2.9% for 60 months and substantial rebates as well. I was also able to negotiate the price of the vehicle close to the invoice price. Overall I got a vehicle at a price that could not be matched by any of the competitors for the same equipment level by thousands of dollars.

Good car

Just bought it and traded in a 09 Suburu Forester. The KIA is bigger, more comfortable and holds more stuff with the seats folded. A lot more power and the 6 spd tranny is a big plus. We bought the basic EX model
