Kia Sedona as Moving Van
October 05, 2006
Faced with a big move next weekend, I pondered which of our long-term vehicles would best serve as a transport to move some boxes from my old apartment to my new one. I wouldn't try to move anything huge like a bed or a kitchen table, just boxes of linens, books, etc....many boxes. At first I considered the FJ Cruiser. When I used it camping earlier this year, I was able to pack a lot in the cargo area, especially with the rear seats down.
But when I asked Erin, an editor, what her opinion was, she spoke up for minivan Kia Sedona.
And after borrowing it for the past couple nights, I can see why she suggested it. Last night when picking up moving boxes, I didn't really have a free hand to unlatch the door but the handy-dandy keyfob automatically raised the rear liftgate for me with the press of a button. Loved that! And when stowing all the seats away, it affords a flat space to pile up the boxes, unlike the FJ which doesn't fold flat and creates mini Towers of Pisa. I also like how both sliding doors of the van open up for way easy access. Now there's just the matter of asking Kelly if I can borrow it. Heh.
