I have had this KIA for a year and 1/2. Been in shop more than a dozen times but still have problems with it. Even worst, in the last 1 1/2 year it lost more than $15,000 in value. Payed $19,000 for it in May 2011, it is now August 2012 and the trade in value is at $4,000. The exterior and interior are in great shape. DO NOT BUY KIA you will loose big time. You and american economy.
BUY Toyota (made in north america). Honda made in US. both great cars with great resale value, great engines and body. My old Toyota after 330,000 and 14 years of service was sold for $1000. Piece of crap KIA in $4000 only after a year.
