But I don't want a minivan!
By Rookie on
2009 Kia Sedona EX 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
I am a reluctant minivan buyer. With two kids still in car seats, my wife felt it was the way to go. She was right. Plenty of room, nice 3rd row folding seats, comfort, and easy to drive. The Kia came with some nice features such as the iPod dock and good storage cubbies. The ability to roll down the back seat windows for the kids is nice too. The V6 has some good pep when needed as well. Turns out I am pleasantly surprised that I actually enjoy driving the Sedona. Itís still a van, but itís nice to know Iíve got a highly rated vehicle for safety with two small kids. Yes, Kia has a low resale value, but that allowed me to buy this for $15k. It was a great buy.
Safety ratings, fold away 3rd row seat, iPod dock, dual climate control in front, great warranty (even at used).
Power sliding doors on the LX model. Seats are a little stiff--but still OK for long drives.
