I recently spent some time with the Kia Sedona Minivan at the end of November and we loved it. We had a lot of fun with it. I got away with my friends for a girls only weekend, went to Long Island for Thanksgiving, and up to my in-laws in Port Jervis, NY. But is it right for your family?
We started our girls only weekend by picking up my friend J and we traveled out to the Inn at East Wind in Wading River, Long Island. We relaxed and recharged in their gorgeous spa and spent night there. The Kia Sedona took us to dinner nearby and to the outlets in Riverhead (who doesn’t love a good bargain). I loved the navigation and how comfortable our ride was.
My friend D got married here in 2010 and if you are looking for a great place to have a girls weekend or a couples get away, this is the place.
The next day, after we got back to reality, I was very happy to be able to find a spot near my home — those are like gold in NYC! The backup camera was great for parking.
Thanksgiving day we headed out to my parents’ house in Long Island. The Kia Sedona was so comfy for the kids. The middle seats recline so little legs can be elevated.
We took a longer ride the next day, up to Port Jervis, NY. We let the kids watch movies, which made for a very quiet ride up.
Take a look at the video I made about the Kia Sedona (my niece helped me film it).

And we also made this cute video in the car.
I liked the roominess of the trunk and that you can put the back row down easily.
I also really liked the navigation system. A google search? Yes please.
These are some of the Kia Sedona that I really liked:
- Forward Collision Warning System
- Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
- Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)
- Power sliding doors
- Memory seating and mirror system (IMS)
- Smart power liftgate with sensor
- Smart key with push button start
- Front and rear park assist
- Keyless entry system with burglar and panic alarm
Verdict: We loved the Kia Sedona. It was very comfortable for my family and I felt very safe driving it.
Thank you to Kia Motors USA and Driveshop USA for lending us the Sedona. No compensation was received.
