Our long-term test of the 2015 Kia Sedona is complete after one year and 20,360 miles. This minivan is a gigantic step forward from the last long-term Sedona we tested in 2006.

    You omitted one of the biggest cons (for me, anyway): the 2nd-row seats cannot be removed. The truck-like utility of most minivans (including my excellent 09 Sedona) does not exist for this vehicle.
  • I DO like the Summary this article provided as it gives a nice summary of everything you've experienced in the past year. I look forward to seeing Summaries for the other vehicles going forward.
  • Part of that depreciation could have been due to the accident. If that was reported to the prospective buyers (Carmax or by reading this site) it would make the vehicle far less desirable.

    I was intrigued by this van. I should have test drove it against the Oddyssey we ended up buying. However I think ultimately the Kia would've still lost out due to two factors. One, the Oddyssey has a 3 person capable middle row for a total seating capacity of 8. This ability has served us well on several occasions even though we only have a family of 5. Ultimately I also couldn't overcome the reliability stigma. Would it be as reliable? Possibly and in all reality it was the seating capacity of of the Honda that clinched the deal. Neither Toyota or Chrysler have 3 person middle row seating. I also had 3 other friends and family members that went with an Oddyssey after going through various Chrysler products. That and Edmunds own 2012 (2011?) long term test of the Oddyssey made the choice that much easier for us to get a 2016 model. Now a year later on the Kia test and while I am still intrigued by it, I am still glad I made the choice we did.

    You can get an 8-passenger Sedona (in highest trim, with Tech pkg). Our middle seat is stored on a shelf in the garage, and we'll plug it in if/when grandma wants to ride along, or if we need more storage space in the way back for vacation.
