Nitpicking the Kia Sedona
February 16, 2007
Last night as my friend and I were getting into the very dark cabin of the Kia Sedona, I fumbled around trying to find the light switch to turn on the interior lights when the doors are open. I instinctively reached for the buttons over the center console near the lights since experience has taught me that that's where the door light buttons are usually located. Nope, not in the Kia. Instead I ended up opening the rear cargo door... Wanting to close it but not being able to see the buttons clearly in the dark, I pressed more buttons that looked like they showed a closing door to no avail. My friend, annoyed, finally jumped out of the car to close the gate but as soon as she started to slam it down, I found and pressed the right button and the cargo door halted abruptly in midswing. The familiar warning beep of the moving door sounded and the door slowly shut itself but not before startling my friend who accused it of trying to eat her purse.
In any case, the next morning I noticed that the door light button is actually located to the lower left of the steering wheel for some reason.
