Critics complain about gas mileage, but I don’t know why. My wife and I did an 8,000 mile road trip and got 24.5 mpg – loaded with people and luggage. The last two days we drove 400 miles on the highway and got 26.7 mpg. We were in the mountains on the 8,000 mile trip and I used the manual shifting a lot. No manual shifting on the Pacifica, which we compared to the Sedona before purchased. The Sedona behaves extremely well with a very good turning radius. Pacifica about 3 feet larger radius. We tested both and the smaller Sedona radius was evident. The layout of the dashboard on the Sedona is well thought out and attractive. The navigation system is by far the best I have ever used. The vehicle is extremely quiet and drives perfectly on the highway. It’s fast – I’ve seen reports from automotive magazines that have rated it at 7.4 seconds 0-60. It’s quick for a large vehicle. I keep saying vehicle because it looks and acts more like an SUV than a van. The nappa leather is awesome, the second row airplane-style seats are a real luxury. The double sunroof really lets light inside. I’ve driven the Pacifica, the Odyssey, and the Sienna – I think the Sedona is the best vehicle. Updated my review a year later: I still think the Sedona SXL is a great vehicle. We have over 16,000 miles and have had no problems. We are currently on a 12,000 mile road trip around the United States, with approximately 3,000 miles traveled. The average MPG so far on the trip is 24.7. Handling on the highway continues to be perfect, the driving is excellent. No complaints whatsoever. It is now January 2018 and we have 28,500 miles on the Sedona. Our 12,000 mile trip ended up being 12,600 miles and we averaged 24.5 mpg. I can’t figure out why the Sedona has low fuel mileage, I think it’s fabulous. So far we haven’t had any problems. I’ve never had a car before, with over 28,000 miles it hasn’t gone bad. It still drives great and behaves well. I thought our 12,600 mile trip would be very tiring. It turned out to be quite the opposite. The Sedona is comfortable and easy to drive. Lots of power, no problem keeping up or overtaking on highways. The last car I had, a 2015 SUV, had what I call âhigh effortâ steering. It made driving very tiring. On our Sedona, we can choose between two different steering efforts. I am 78 years old and it is a pleasure to drive the car. Updated July 2018. We are on another road trip, so far 4,400 miles. Again, the Sedona worked perfectly. MPG on this trip is 24.9 to date. There really is nothing more to say except that my wife and I love the car. Updated January 2019. Best car we’ve ever had! Still not a problem, and we have 43,500 miles to go. It’s an easy car to drive, all the high tech works perfectly. There isn’t much more I can say. It was the best buying decision my wife and I have ever made. Oh, I should say this. My wife didn’t want a minibus – now she loves it!
