Had problems with two side door locks. Repaired under warranty.
2007 4dr Minivan, ext. 250-horsepower 3.8L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Actually not bad but long term reliability is still questionable. Repair prices and parts are much harder to find in my area.
2006 4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.8L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Had some problems with computer. Dealers are not very competent.

Published reliability survey information shows the 2006 Sedona (first year of the re-design) already to be below average. Mine has developed a rattle and squeek at the rear seats and wall panel area. Not too bad, but notice it more than before.
