Having now driven this car as a primary for 27k miles, this car is a good one. Easy to work on, even if you're a backyard mechanic. Lots of room, even for a family of six (all small children). Downside, there's not a real trunk space if you have the third row. Positives, plenty of extras even on the base model, pre-drilled holes for mounting aftermarket towing kits and side rails, plus it gets better gas mileage than a minivan. So far, no major maintenance has been needed.
Reliability, roomy for what it is, XM Sirius radio included, lots of places to put things
There needs to be a storage area in the floor besides the one in the very rear of the car. Also, Kia could have given some more space under the hood for belts to be changed (but this seems to be an automotive problem since no car seems to have enough room anymore).
