    which minivans have good safety ratings?

    My mom is looking for a minivan so that my children will be able to ride safely with her. She has to get a used one, and can't afford a Honda or Toyota, so does anyone know which others have good safety ratings? Thanks in advance!!

    Re: which minivans have good safety ratings?

    I am planning to get a Kia Sedona myself. They have excellent ratings and are affordable. You want to look at the 2005 or newer models though because that was after an ownership switch, I believe? So the 2005 and up models are more reliable, I've been told.

    Yup, if you can't afford a Honda/Toyota, I'd be getting a Kia Sedona as well.
