Great economical all-around hauler
By Mike D on
2008 Kia Rondo EX 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
PROS - EX 6 cyl new 2008 leftover stickered $23,000+ bought early in 2009 for $16,000 total (no trade, and included tax, title, and registration). WOW! - Mileage - 24+ mpg mixed driving and 27+ highway (usually running around 70 mph). We're easy on the peddle. - Tows a 1,000 lb pop up trailer effortlessly - costs 3 mpg - Solid build, reasonably quiet - 3rd row split bench seat lets us haul 6 - 4 adults, two kids in car seats - 6 people total - AND a big stroller -- plus a few other things -- in relative comfort. IFFY: - Looks are unremarkable - Road-handling and performance reasonably satisfying (it is a 'midi van' after all!) - Front seats not very comfortable
- Sale price - Great deal of space for a mid-size format - Mileage is very good - Solid, quiet
- Front seats need improvement. Built- in adjustments don't help much at all.
