I reluctantly gave in to my wife's demands for more space and traded in my 2018 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab for a KIA Sedona because the Toy just was not practical for a family of 5.
We looked at SUV's. I really wanted a Telluride, however, due to the Telluride's popularity, dealers are unjustly inflating prices by $10,000-15,000! It's impossible to find a Telluride at the advertised introductory price point of $30,000. One salesman told me they had overpriced a base model to $45,000 and it sold the same day... He also went on to say they have an unofficial non-negotiation policy on the Telluride...We went to another KIA dealer. God I hate car salesmen...
I swore I would never be a Mini-Van-Dad...Wrong! I test drove a 2018 Certified Pre-Owned Sedona and was really impressed. Since it was used with 12,000 miles, it had already taken the depreciation hit, and I walked away with the dealer cutting me a check for my Toyota!
I have been driving the Sedona for a month, and I have to say, it may not be an overpriced SUV, but I have money in the bank, tonnes of space, great handling/acceleration, all leather interior, heated seats and a happy wife.
I get complements and questions from strangers all the time ....Plus, the new Sedona just looks better and badder than any of the other Vans out there...to me Looks like a modern version of the A-Team van
