    It is really comfortable, very quiet and smooth. Freeway driving is a joy. The seats are great and it feels solid and safe on the road.

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: Seating Flexibility

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: EX models go quickly - be prepared to buy when you test drive.

    An amazing value. Sedona is comfortable, performs well, and costs $5-8K less than closest competitors that aren't as well equipped. We put 15,000 miles on it in six months and like it more now than when we first test drove it.

    2002 Ford Windstar - LX Base (110A)

    Pros: Interior seating layout -- front buckets, 2 seat bench, 3 seat bench.

    Cons: The side armrests on the driver seat.

    Advice: Check out the amount of luggage storage you need. In my model the rear seat can be moved to the middle position to create a larger cargo area. Salesman didn't know about that.

    After 1,000 miles I like everything about this minivan. Very quiet ride, handles easily, the kids love it, and the controls are all well thought out. I never had a car with a keyless entry before but it is a real convenience too. It has great headroom (I'm 6'-5') but it also fits my 5'-3' wife. So far it is averaging 20 mpg with a combination of short commute city driving and highway miles. With my past vehicles I have had much better luck with Ford than Honda in terms of quality, maintenance, and cost. This is what steered me to the Windstar.

    2002 Kia Sedona - LX

    Pros: Sound system, exterior and interior designs, sharp head light design, & comfort

    Cons: Quality of windshield - stress fracture. They should recall this! Many compartments can be a plus but they're so small it adds little to no value. AC button - the light is so dim I can't tell if I have the AC on or not.

    Advice: Ask what they will do if the windshield breaks before signing.

    I agree with most folks that it has a smooth ride. But I thought the acceleration could have more of a kick. I can choose to give it extra gas but I hate to drain more gas than it already does. Having owned subcompacts all my life, I really noticed the difference of 15 city & 20 fwy fuel mileage. As much as I like the car, it really is a gas guzzer, which I'm not too fond of.

    2002 Nissan Quest - GLE

    Pros: Memory seating best thing ever invented

    Cons: color options to few

    Advice: buy for your needs not the salesmens selling points if its not right look around

    My wife is disabled, and for her to like the ease of operating this minivan says alot. It was not modified for her in any way.
