Kia Rondo 2019: Will parts be more expensive now Kia has stopped selling the Rondo in the Australian market?
Service costs won’t be affected, but some people might be put off because it’s no longer on sale. Parts will still be readily available through Kia for a long time to come.
Best budget 7 seaters?
The used Captiva does appear to be great value, but their shaky reputation for reliability would lead me to consider other options. The Territory would be a better bet, but they are known to have electrical and front suspension issues in the long-term. If you're after an SUV, a seven-seat 2006-12 Mitsubishi Outlander is smart buying at the moment, but if you're just after the seven seats, I highly recommend taking a look at a 2008-13 Kia Rondo. These represent excellent value at the moment. Hope that helps, and keep us posted with your progress.
Best used 7-seater under $15k?
The three cars you name all have merit, none has any major issue to be concerned about and all fit your needs, but you will have to shop around to find them within your age and budget limits.
Rondo for a family with a wheelchair?

Aftermarket cruise control on a Kia Rondo?
We checked with Kia and their spokesman confirmed that Kia doesn’t offer a cruise control, either from the factory or a dealer-fit aftermarket option. We were also told that while there are systems out in the market that are suitable for the Rondo, Kia does not endorse any of them. They say there has been some evidence of problems with aftermarket systems, not just on Kia cars. They’re usually electrical problems due to fitment and connection to the electrical and mechanical throttle systems. As an aftermarket system is not Kia developed it would not be warranted and could affect warranty on other systems. Any modification to the car as a result of the installation of any aftermarket accessory or component has an affect on the new car warranty, so you need to be aware of what would be modified by the installer before agreeing to proceed with the work. You also need to use a competent person to do the work.
