okay, obviously based on the last post, the Moores are officially mini van shopping. Based on our price range and the mileage we are hoping for, I am looking at '07 or '08 Kia Sedonas. I know that Honda Odysseys are the best, or that was the overwhelming facebook response, but as I have researched, I just don't think we can get an Odyssey in our price range without tons of miles on it. And I have heard that Sedonas are reliable vans, so I think that is the route we are going--if we can find what we are looking for.
So, I am wondering if anyone out there drives a Kia Sedona? I would love to hear your thoughts. I am hoping someone out there can give me an opinion on the Sedona. Anyone, anyone? Especially if you drive an '07 or an '08!! That would be ideal ;)
Also, we are new to car shopping, so I would also love used car shopping advice. Sedona or not, do any of you have tips for how to get a good deal and make sure the vehicle is reliable? Better yet, do any of you know a reliable car salesman in the Atlanta area?
As for the poor, poor Tribute, we are still working through all the details of that. We are fairly certain that the fire started because of a recalled part. We tried to get the part replaced a couple of months ago, but Mazda told us that the part would not be available until later this year. We are in the process of investigating that. So, if you are wondering why my car randomly caught on fire--it's because of a bad part. So, if you also drive an '01 or '02 Mazda Tribute, be warned!!
And in good news--friends of ours from church will be on vacation for the next week and a half, so they have offered their car to me while they are out of town. I am going to pick it up this afternoon when Scott gets home from work. So, thank you, Lord, I will not be stuck at home, and by the time they get back, we will hopefully be closer to purchasing a van. He is providing!!!!
