1995 Kia Sephia Sedan RS 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Best Features

Stick shift, dashboard (very easy to read).


Worst Features

Would have been nice not to hear the smi pass you on the Hwy, but wasn't nothing turning up the radio couldn't fix!

1995 Kia Sephia Sedan LS 4dr Sedan


Review

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


Best Features

comfort, fuel economy adorable


Worst Features

SAFETY, reliability (engine replaced at 70k).

1995 Kia Sephia Sedan RS 4dr Sedan (1995.5)


Review

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.


Best Features

The millage on the highway is still 45 mpg. and I'm sure when I get the clutch redone the intown will get better than 28 too.

1995 Kia Sephia Sedan GS 4dr Sedan (1995.5)


Review

Bought the Sephia and immediately used
it for around town and approx 12 - 15
long trips per year (1000+ miles
roundtrip each trip). It has given us
no problems other than what we
consider regular maint. up north here
(replaced brake pads, muffler, front
struts, & battery).


Best Features

Extremely reliable and can't beat the price.

Review

Our Kia has given us nothing but
headaches. At about 70,000 miles we
had to replace the transmission. We
then repaired an oil leak. We have
repaired the transmission once since
the replacement and now it is leaking
again. The radiator has been replaced
and had numerous repairs. The
reliability on this car has been nil.
Not to mention, that about 2 1/2 years
after we purchased it, the engine began
to ping so badly in hot weather that
getting up long stretches of hill is an
impossibility. The air conditioner is
also out but too expensive to fix, as
it is not necessary. We probably got a
lemon, but I won't take the chance on
KIA again.
