1994 Kia Sephia GS 4dr Sedan


Review

This car has been in my family 1994 and has averaged over 20000 rough miles a year and has traveled from coast to coast. It now has close to 210,000 miles and has never had a major engine or transmission problem. It's not the nicest, trendiest, or most comfortable car but it's held its own over the years. I would give a new Hyundai or Kia a try especially with their new warranties. Don't assume that they're cheaply built cars.

Gas mileage

1994 Kia Sephia RS 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased the car new. The only major repair was to replace a worn cv boot. Like any car, if you take care of it... I still enjoy driving it as much as the first day.


Favorite Features

Handling, mileage, exterior is still like new. "Hold" feature.


Suggested Improvements

No intermittent windshield wiper. Radio display is hard to read

1994 Kia Sephia RS 4dr Sedan


Review

In January 1999, I bought a used 1994 Kia Sephia RS. Single owner, 89,000 miles on it. I have had the brakes done, regular oil changes & tune ups, a new battery. Some minor tweaking of the timing & general maintenance (headlights etc). But, other than that I have had NO PROBLEMS with it. It always starts & gets great gas mileage. This is the best car for it's value that I have ever had.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage, reliable performance. The best value for it's money. I got more than my money's worth. It cost me about $45/month to own this car!


Suggested Improvements

Not much pep to it, I have decreased the number of speeding tickets that I have gotten. Not really comfortable for larger people.

Review

Quality is very cheap. Acceleration is a joke (13 second 0-60). The transmission and the brakes are horrible. Handling, what handling? Wind sheer & road noise is atrocious. The interior is extremely bland. The fuel economy is good (but that is to be expected on a 2300lber) When I found a new car I was happy to hand back the Kia's keys to my friend. My friend bought this car without checking into Kia's. Within a couple of months of buying it he had to throw away $1000 to have the engine rebuilt! He got the car for $2000 (way too much)! That was his fault for buying the damn Sephia in the first place!


Favorite Features

Decent gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

The engine. The transmission. The brakes. The build quality. The exterior design. Basically, the whole car itself!
