2009 Kia Rondo Wagon EX 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Tired of having small sedans so looked for something economical but roomy. Found the Rondo, EX trim. Overall a good family car. Plenty of headroom and the kids have quit a bit of space in the 2nd row. Visibility is near-perfect in this car. Easy to see. Have the 3rd row which is a bit of a joke unless the person back there is about 8 years or younger. 3rd row easily flips down flat for a good sized load space. 2nd row folds flat too but it takes more effort. Great hauler for either people or stuff--just NOT AT THE SAME TIME. Tech is pretty sweet for an 09 vehicle. Touch screen display, navigation (solid), 8 speakers, heated seats, Ipod jack and interface.


Best Features

overall room inside. leg room, head room, heated seats, clean crisp stereo sound (LOUD if you like it that way), easy to drive and park. smuggler's box in the back is cool. roof rails. full-size hatch opening allows for almost anything to be loaded into it. handles well in the city or highway. 2nd row has a small set of vents for A/C and heat.


Worst Features

interior is filled with cheap, hollow plastic. this isn't a good thing. cheap materials means a cheap feeling overall. what a shame b/c the rest of the vehicle is good. plastic on the inside scratches, fades, warps, and breaks way too easily. I'm assuming they fixed this with the new model however Kia didn't bring that to the US market. had several issues with this car after buying it used (one owner). can't even remember how many times we took it in to the kia place. everything was covered by warranty but still....it is a pain to have to keep taking it in every 3 weeks. bulbs on the outside keep burning out. rough on brakes and tires.

it only gets about 20 miles to the gallon on the highway. And in one year it has a trade in value of $9400.00 I paid $19,000

2009 Kia Rondo Wagon EX 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We were looking for something to replace my Taurus Wagon, but wanted to be sure to get better gas mileage and better room. This covers all the basis. I love the features it has and the handling is great. My husband is comfortable in this unlike he was in the HHR we almost bought. So far I have no complaints.


Best Features

It has the comfort of a van, gas mileage of a car, high from the ground like a SUV


Worst Features

The tan seats are not child friendly. Easily remedied though with seat covers. Also has some wind noise when I am on the interstate

2009 Kia Rondo Wagon LX Base 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased as a 1 yr old used car from a rental sales place. This vehicle was used but in like/new condition. I really like it. It handles well and seems very soundly built. I was very surprised because Kia was the worst on my list last time I purchased a car.


Best Features

I like the handling, fast, slow, breaks all seem great.


Worst Features

Really - the One BIG thing on my list is the driver seat. I was considering taking this car back because I cannot get comfortable in it. I am very short and it is hard to adjust it down enough and then see over the dash.
