I have only had this car for about 2 months but so far so good. This is my second Kia, my previous Kia was an 06 Sorento, Kia is definitely stepping their game up. I chose this car over a new Honda Accord because Kia offers more bang for the buck. For less than the price of the Honda I got a touch screen system w/ nav and satellite radio, sunroof, ipod connection, and heated seats. This is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned and the gas mileage is decent also. The warranty is also awesome. I love my new car!
The touch screen radio system and sunroof are my favorite feature. It is also roomy enough for my 4 year old and all of her stuff in the backseat. The trunk also has a lot of space.
I would have liked a v6 option, the 4 cylinder doesn't have enough acceleration for my aggressive driving, and the radio doesn't have a Bluetooth connection. The gas mileage is decent but it isn't anything to throw a party over, 30-35 mpg would be better considering this is a 4 cyl.
