The Nissan Altima was the third-best selling mid-size sedan in America in calendar year 2015, behind Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. But for the first two months of 2016, it's been in second place, outselling the Accord.
There is very little to feel sorry about for Kia these days. The onetime punchline of a car company has made enormous strides in the past seven or eight years, to the point where their products are now legitimate competitors to Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Mazda. Here in California, there is no stigma to owning one of these South Korean machines. They seem as thick on the ground as their more established Japanese competitors.
But there's one place where Kia hasn't brought its "A" game. And that's the Sedona minivan.
