Fun, functionality & a bargain to boot

2008 Kia Rondo LX 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
I bought my Rondo off-lease 15 months ago with just under 16k on the odometer. I've driven it on the interstates, urban byways, country lanes, mountain roads, etc., and have no performance issues. No problems at all beyond the scheduled maintenance. It's well made, well equipped and is very functional--a terrific little multitasker at a bargain price.
Interior space: I hauled 12 bags of trash to the landfill the other day without compromising my sight lines. The Rondo is easy to enter and exit, which is great for kids, the elderly and those with disabilities. Love the ESC, it really works!
The foot brake "idiot light" is low- contrast and tough to see during daylight hours. A more visible (or even audible) warning would have saved some wear & tear. Seat upholstery water spots, but cleans up nicely. A telescoping steering wheel would be a welcome addition, as would improved gas mileage.
