  8. What kind of gas mileage does it get?
    Reply

    While chauffeuring around the entire soccer team, the Sedona still produces a very reasonable EPA-estimated combined miles per gallon of 20. However, when cruising down the highway it can churn out a surprising 25 mpg on the SX model. In the city, smart fuel system still delivers 18 mpg making it a very reasonable selection when taking fuel economy into consideration.

  9. Is is easy to take out the second and third row seats?
    Reply

    While the third row are installed in the traditional manner, the second row features a Slide N' Stow option. Designed for easier access and use of the cargo area, pull a lever and the entire second row slides forward. Slide it back into position when room is needed for the kids again. This results in leaving the seating in place. Much better!
