A Really Nice Van That Is Easy On The Wallet. — The Sedona is an affordable, well-built and reliable van. It handles very well and has a surprising amount of power. The 3.5L V6 can sound downright sporty under hard acceleration. The Sedona is very comfortable for long trips and quite versatile. The standard 6 speaker AM/FM/CD sounds really good, and most controls are logically placed and easy to use. The fit and finish is quite good, trailing Honda and Toyota by only a model year or two. Some plastics feel and look cheap, but all are durable. The cloth used on the seats and door panels is very nice quality, and the highly-adjustable driver's seat is appreciated. While the Sedona may not stop traffic, it is a nice looking van and, because it's not as big a seller as Caravans and Siennas, it has a little bit of a quirky side. Lastly, the Sedona gets top safety and reliability marks, so that's always comforting.

Pros: Affordable, handles well, comfortable, well-equipped, surprising power.

Cons: Rear seats are a pain to remove and replace, gas mileage is ok but nothing to write home about, wide turning circle.

I've Seen Good And Bad --mostly Good — I like what I've read. Sometimes I've read negative reviews. It's mostly about the Sedona brakes. I gather that the weight of this vehicle is the cause of the brakes having a short life span.

Pros: size, looks and safety for the price

Cons: brakes wearing down sooner than expected, inconsistent engine life w/out problems,gas mileage
