Smart Emergency Tools - 2015 Kia Sedona SX-L Long-Term Road Test

The only thing worse than getting a flat tire is realizing that you have to unload your entire trunk to get to the spare. Thankfully, that's not the case in our 2015 Kia Sedona.

    I agree, kudos to Kia for ease of use (and for including at least a donut spare). But that raises the question: If the van is full of your stuff, and the underbody stowage is only sized for a donut tire, where do you put your flat tire after changing it?

    I assume you just have to somehow stuff it into the cargo bay. Probably best to keep some plastic folded up stashed away to put your dirty flat tire on, so you don't get everything inside the car dirty.

    For a vehicle this big, especially loaded with people and cargo like, I'd be very paranoid about the limitations of the small spare tire. I'm sure Kia did their HW but still I'd feel better about a full size wheel and tire.

    The spare is easy to lower but it's the crawling under the van to get it that's the problem.

    This is exactly the same as my 2001 Toyota Sienna. The jack and lug wrench are tucked into a compartment on the left side and the spare tire is underneath the vehicle.
