My dad had a Kia Sedona for a few years, for towing his caravan. Damn good car, he went all round Europe in it. I drove it quite a few times, very nice handling. I like 'em! :)

I do, been looking at them myself. depreciation is horrendous which makes hem good second hand buys if you plan to hang on to it. Any car 100,000 plus is only worth smarties when you trade them in anyway. Lots of diesel sedonas used round here as taxis. Magentis heavy fuel consumption and high road tax band as well. Saw a 2006 one for £6,000 locally. Hyundai own Kia, basically same cars different badges. Have a look at them as well-lots of trajets used as taxis round here (I live near an airport, they need big cars)

Have a look at chevrolet as well (used to be daewoo,) they are owned by general motors-vauxhall astra. swop the badges around and you would difficulty telling them apart. You can pick up 2,3 yrs old lacetti estates dirt cheap now as the model has been replaced, forget the badge but it does mean depreciation is dreadful over 50% in the first year. the engines and parts are vauxhall-or opel.

Let's put it this way they are better than peugeot, citroen or renault. I'm thinking of writing a book 101 reasons not to buy a renault but I don't know enough expletives for 101

Have a look at this site.
