It is very dependable and comfortable.

I keep the car up to date on oil and fluid changes and have not had any major problems. I bought the car used 5 years ago. I have replaced the battery once, wipers at least twice. Lights bulbs a few times. Tires. Have traveled very comfortably with it. Have taken a family of 6 on mini vacations many times. Have enjoyed driving it. I use my cruise control a lot. Thinking of replacing it with another newer make and model.

The Sedona is a larger vehicle and it drives like a boat. Also it has enough power to get the job done. Be ready to stop every 300 miles though to fill up on gas.

The vehicle is a good road vehicle and it offers enough to get by on road trips. The vehicle drives well and has good power, braking, and steering. I dislike that it consumes a ton of gas and that it sometimes lacks in features that would be nice like headed seats or power seats. Reliability is good but the vehicle will sometimes have issues that are not common.

Good family van, but has sticky doors.

The car is a good family van. The seats are easily removable for cleaning or moving bigger things. The problem is the back sliding doors stick in the winter. It takes a lot of muscle to unstick them. The power is nice for the size of the van and drives smoothly. We have had limited maintenance costs over the years. Owned van for 10 years.
