Great minivan for the price!

2011 Kia Sedona LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


My 2011 Sedona was $6000 less out the door than Sienna and has a better warranty. Our local Kia dealership is also a well respected family business. Sienna drove slightly better but certainly not $6000 worth! Truth is with two kids & a dog to haul around it needs to be comfortable, solid & safe - it is. The Sedona's 3.5 V6 is powerful, willing, and sounds really good winding out. The auto shifts cleanly and manual mode works well in the hills. The 18/25 mileage figures are accurate. I meet or exceed these numbers when driven calmly. 5600 miles so far and one problem (sticky purge valve = rough idle) fixed without problem under warranty with loaner provided. Happy so far with my first Kia.

Best Features

Comfortable family cruiser. Durable well constructed plastics (good for kids). Bluetooth works well and call clarity is good. Powerful engine. Accurate mileage ratings. Steering wheel controls. Backup sensors.

Worst Features

Throttle tip-in is too aggressive for my tastes. A gentle foot is required for a slow pull away. Telescoping wheel should be included. For driver's over 6 ft the front seat would be better with an extra inch of rearward travel. Exterior design is pleasant but forgettable (similar to last generation Odyssey). Sedona could use some cosmetics to make it look as nice as the other new Kias.
