2012 Kia Sedona Minivan EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
This is a great choice for minivan. My family fits very comfortably, and most often makes use of the 4 captain's chairs. We use the back for either the occasional 3rd row need, or for stowing lots of sports, shopping, and travel gear as necessary. The backup camera is fantastic and helps keep us safe when backing out of the driveway. There's plenty of room in the front console - it really becomes mom's 2nd home on wheels sometimes. The fuel economy is fine, even with lots of back road driving thru the burbs. Overall I love the convenience and family friendly factors that the van brings us.
2012 Kia Sedona Minivan LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Bought this mainly to carry myself and several larger RC model aircraft on almost daily 60 mile round trips to flying site. Grew quickly to really like this vehicle. At 91K miles its been perfect in reliability and still tight and rattle free as new. I appreciate the smooth and strong acceleration, ride and excellent handling. My gas mileage has been a consistent 24 mpg in mixed driving. OEM Yokohoma tires got noisier and noisier as they wore down, so replaced them early at about 49K miles with Generals which are much quieter with no loss of handling. Only thing I really miss is the fold into the floor center row seats found on the Chrysler minivans. I just take mine out and leave them home in the garage but would rather have the flexability of being there if I need them. Folding up against the front seats is available, but takes up too much needed room in my application. Dealers constant attempted upselling of servicing is annoying but follow the factory recommendations and it's not much of a burden at all. Would I buy it again? In a heartbeat.
