Oh my kia

Vehicle: 1995 Kia Sephia RS 4dr Sedan

My family was the 12th people to own one in Houston. I learned to drive (stick) on our Kia Sephia. It was basic with nothing (RS) and at 100,000 miles we replaced the tranny, and timing belt, and ball bearings. After 4 1/2 years we still average 48mpg hwy and 39 city with 175,000 miles on it. And trust me, being 16 and stupid, I put that car to the test. I love Kia, and now I'm 22 and I am determined to buy the new Spectra as soon as i get a job. Kia made a customer of me for life thanks to that Sephia.

Vehicle: 1995 Kia Sephia LS 4dr Sedan

This was my first car. It got me around town with no problems and i bought it used. However, i have been in two very minor accienrts with it- a tire that rolled off another car hit the front from of my car. I also barely tapped the back of a jeep at less than 10 mph n another accident. DONT HIT THE CAR! The first accident left me with the whole right side messed up (undrivable) and lots of money to fix. THe horn still doesnt work. The second totalled my car- radiator was ripped apart, whole front messed up, hood popped upo and broke my windshield... and the jeep had no only a nick on its plastic wheel cover! UNSAFE

The thing will not die

Vehicle: 1995 Kia Sephia RS 4dr Sedan (1995.5)

I bought it new when I first got married. The wife played bumper cars with half a dozen people and did a 360 flip in the air off of the highway. The others did not fair so well but the Kia is indistructable. I had to replace the alternater when I baught the car and the timing belt and water pump at the hundred thousand mile mark. But, since I can sell my lawn mower for more used I'll drive it until drops. Which is looking like an easy 20 years.

What's New for 1995

Oh no, another Korean manufacturer trying to break into the American market. But wait, this one is actually worth considering; a lot of help from Mazda and Ford mean that this little upstart is actually making fairly reliable little cars. The Sephia has plenty of Mazda parts and Kia has a long history of building durable, cheap cars.

The Sephia and Spectra aren't that good either. Any car that gets better mileage with automatic transmission needs the final drive ratio changed. Automatic in the Sephia is 22/31, manual 23/29. Why...

I bought a Sephia in 1995. After I had it a couple of years, the check engine light came on. I took it in and they turned it off. A few months later it came back on. I took it back in and they turned ...

I also notice Kia is keeping the practice of naming 2 different cars in the same year. In 1995, I bought a 1995.5 Sephia. The difference between an early 1995 and mine was I had dual air bags and a co...
