Good solid van

2006 Kia Sedona LX 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
We bought our 2006 in Feb. of 2007. We now have 17K miles on it. No major issues. We had the tires rotated at the 12K service interval and the sensors went off because the tires were under inflated. I just put some air in them and the sensors cleared. Interior is rather spartan. Gas mileage is okay from a 3.8L engine that turns out almost 250 HP. Great get-up-and-go. Wife loves the way the third row seats fold down. Lots of usable space inside. Just make sure to change the oil every 3K miles. It is a 40-weight oil so it is a little more expensive if you don't go to the dealer.
Dependable for what we paid. Gas mileage is around 20-22 MPG. Great inside utility. No major issues or even minor ones. Good, solid van.
Plastic steering wheel. Paint is a little spotty where there are some blemishes, but no rust or loss of gloss. I wish it had aluminum wheels but they are not standard on the LX.
