    2002 Chrysler Town and Country - EX FWD

    Pros: Power hatches/doors

    Cons: Minivan looks (though it is best of all choices)

    Advice: Haggle--never pay MSRP, even for 'out the door' cost!

    The fit & finish of this vehicle is excellent, and ride & sound quality are first-rate. Lots of content for the price--no one comes close. As for reliability, we will see. But with free 7 year/100,000 mile warranty, at least it won't come out of my pocket!

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: sunroof

    Cons: The interior lights need to stay on longer until you insert the key in the ignition.

    Advice: Buy it you would definitely get your money worth and then some.

    This is the best vehicle I've ever owned. It drives smoothly and quietly. There is a lot of storage space. I love my sunroof, cd/cassette player and most of all the sound. This vehicle has a sound system that you would never imagine coming from a minivan. The price was great compared to others I had seen. I thank the Kia Company for this vehicle a job well done.

    2002 Honda Odyssey - EX

    Pros: Engine and Powertrain Upgrade

    Cons: Low end speaker sound AM/FM/CD stereo system

    Advice: Try to get a better price by dealing with the fleet or internet manager

    Some minor rattling from both sliding doors. Quieter engine, definitely more horsepower and pickup from stop due to 5-speed Auto tranny. A major improvement! Tires are wider and lower aspect ration for performance. Wheels are forged differently to prevent rim scuffing. Now with 4-wheel disc brakes! Minor cosmetic changes. Honda emblems may be too large. Overall, Honda, has done an outstanding job!

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: price

    Cons: wheel covers

    Advice: watch out for overpriced 'dealer fees' ie mudguards, enviromental pkg

    The test drive was good. The van has good pick-up and handling. The ride was comfortable, even on the poorly maintained roads around the dealership. There is an unusual amount of storage bins. No loud road noise was noticed, the radio was difficult to operate. There is not much room cargo room in the rear with the third row seats in place but the seat is easily removed. A good choice for the money when compared to other minivans

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: Comfort of interior layout

    Cons: The van is narrow compared to others; golf clubs are tight fit

    Advice: Be wary of dealer pricing. Check tire pressure. Skip ABS.

    This van runs so quietly, it is difficult to believe it is a Kia. Great pick-up, excellent ride, attractive interior. Leather upholstery is tastefully done. Kia engineers appear to have picked out all the good elements from the competition, improved on them, and then lowered the price. Initial ride was too harsh until I lowered the tire pressure from 45 pounds to 35 pounds. Ride improved immensely. Every door and compartment closes with a Lexus quality thunk. Even the radio appears to be good. I purchased for about $1000 under MSRP, but some dealers are increasing price by $1495 for something they call 'market value adjustment'.
