Pros

Wealth of standard features; excellent safety reputation; choice of two different sizes; good handling


Value Writeup

With more standard equipment than rival vans, the Sedona makes a strong appeal on value for the money. The Sedona is also arguably one of the safest minivans, with a full roster of safety equipment and top crash-test scores; it has been named a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS.


Model Highlights

The Sedona comes in two different lengths--short-wheelbase (SWB), and long-wheelbase (LWB). The LWB models are about a foot longer overall. In either length, the front-wheel-drive Sedona is powered by a 250-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 engine, mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic manual control.

The Sedona's interior configuration really makes the most of the available space, with three rows of seating and space for up to seven. In LWB models, second-row seats flip forward to aid access to the third row or fold for cargo, and the 60/40-split third-row seat folds fully into the floor to make available a flat cargo area. SWB models get a different arrangement with a 50/50-split removable third-row seat. The Sedona comes with sliding doors on both sides All of the added length of the LWB Sedonas goes into the cabin, so they're considerably roomier than the SWB version.

The Sedona offers good acceleration even with a full load, thanks to the very torquey character of the V6 engine; properly equipped, the Sedona can tow up to 3500 pounds. A 4-wheel independent suspension employs MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link design in back, with stabilizer bars front and back. The Sedona handles surprisingly well; as with most minivans, it steers and maneuvers more like a sedan than a tall SUV. Maneuverability is especially a strong point for the SWB model, which may be a good choice for those who live in the city and frequently need to parallel park.

Front seat-mounted side airbags and full-length side-curtain airbags are standard on the Sedona, as are anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control.

The LWB Sedona is offered in either LX or EX trim. LX models come with air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, and power windows--including one in the sliding door. The EX loads on many additional features, including a roof rack, fog lamps, power-adjustable seats, adjustable pedals, a trip computer. Both models include an MP3-compatible CD sound system. The SWB Sedona comes in a single trim that's similar to the LX equipment.

Newly optional this year is a navigation system, available only on the EX as part of the Premium Entertainment Package, which also includes a 660-watt Infinity surround sound system with thirteen speakers and DVD video. Other major options on the EX include a sunroof and heated leather seats, and power sliding doors are optional on either LWB Sedona trims.


Model News

For 2009, Sirius satellite radio compatibility--including a trial 3-month subscription--is standard on all Sedonas. An auxiliary input and MP3-compatible USB connector is also newly standard. A navigation system is optional on the Sedona for the first time, though it's only offered on the top EX trim.

Summary

Summary
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Kia Sedona vehicles manufactured from June 15, 2005, through April 04, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the secondary hood latch may bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed.

Consequence
If the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Kia will notify owners and dealers will replace the secondary hood latch or clean and lubricate the latch, depending on the vehicle's location and the condition of the latch. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on July 27, 2016. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall number is SC134.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
