We bought our 2.9 turbo diesel automatic Sedona at one year old from main dealer with 13,000 miles and one owner. Initially liked it, fuel consumption OK for such a heavy car but servicing frequent at every 6,000 miles (always carried out on time)and always about 300 to 450 pounds. Very heavy smoke with acceleration especially on motorways, quite embarrassing. Failed both MOT's on emissions, had to buy some cleaning jollop and thrash for 10 miles before finally passing. Then at 50,000 miles car wouldn't move away from traffic lights. RAC took to local dealer on recovery lorry, they refused it saying they had too many breakdowns already! Outcome, auto gearbox failure, dealer quoted 4,000 to 4,500 to repair. Independent transmission specialist said cannot repair or get recon, so new gearbox. 3,200 pounds, we sold it for 3,500. So not exactly a bargain people carrier.
