2009 Kia Rondo 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.
Favorite 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.
Suggested Improvements
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.
