I bought a 2008 Kia Sedona LX (no options) in November 2011 for $12,600 CDN.
The car had 38,000 kms on it with full bumper to bumper warranty until September 2013.
I've had it for 17 days now with 1,000 kms put in.
The V6 engine is the same as the Hyundai Genesis' V6 - smooth with plenty of power.
The Sedona is a very good highway cruiser:
quiet, comfortable and decent gas consumption.
In the city, the suspension will tell you every bump in the road.
It doesn't handle as well as it's competitors but that's not saying that the Sedona handles poorly.
It is car like in handling but not as good as it's competitors.
Base LX model is pretty loaded.
Very good minivan for your money.
Base LX model with no options comes with many standard features.
ALL windows are POWER, including the sliding door windows and the "chicken wings" in the back.
Tri-zone ventilation is a luxury feature - very convenient.
Throw in there the rear parking sensors and you have a loaded van at a base model price.
Interior materials and finish give a "cheap" feeling.
The steering wheel and the stalks feel like something used in an entry level compact car while the seat materials feel upgraded.
Gives a mismatched feeling for the interior.
