car good, factory? sleazy option packages
By buzzk on


2012 Kia Sedona LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


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

Favorite Features

performance & handling, easy drivability, gas milage at highway cruise [not around town] excellent visibility in all directions. does NOT need an idiotic styling "upgrade" that pinches the back window rear quarter view & is less safe & harder to drive in traffic. You can actually SEE out of this vehicle, delightful! we plan to keep it but try to be VERY careful to over-ride auto-unlock when parking & starting it

Suggested Improvements

an ethical choice of option packages so you don't have to buy thousands of dollars of [for me] junk to get an important operational safety feature like heated outside mirrors. get rid of dangerous insecure autolock/unlock feature. Also fix sliding doors that won't lock open if window down a little - dangerous for kids [or my!] fingers
