Kia Sedona: Removable seats are convenient but not light

August 07, 2006

Here's a little surprise I didn't expect last weekend when removing the Sedona's second-row seats.

I had to use a hand truck to move the seats between the Sedona and my garage because of their weight, which was massive enough to make me retrieve the bathroom scale to get to the bottom of the issue. Sixty one point eight pounds each to be exact -- not exactly feathery. Yes, the Sedona's seats are conveniently removable, but at that weight you probably shouldn't ever plan to have your wife do this job.

Otherwise, the Sedona performed brilliantly, swallowing the loveseat/sleeper without issue.
