2009 Kia Rondo EX 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl 5A)
Bought the KIA looking for a 3rd row. It has lots of room, but too many problems. Headlights have horizon line and are not good on hills. Bad vibration, which according to KIA was caused because the rims bent when car sat to long. The fix was to overinflate the tires. Airbag lights took several tries to fix, stereo was broken from day one, but dealer thought it was fine. KIA eventually replaced it, but the replacement was also broken. Trade in offers after about 7 months ranged from $7,000 to $10,800 for a car with about a $23,000 MSRP when purchased
Lots of room, even for tall drivers.
Fix the headlights. Not sure why they cut off the way they do, but, to us, it is just plain dangerous if you drive in hilly terrain. Headlights aren't adjustable. If you are looking at the Rondo, test drive it at night.
