Don't Buy It

Review

I've had my Kia for three and a half years and I am starting to get real aggravated with it. So far the fuel pump has been recalled, the windshield wipers, and my air condition has broken down. The brakes were a constant problem as they are with most Kia owners. Spend the extra money on a Honda.

Kia Sephia still Rollin' at 67K

1998 Kia Sephia LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had my Sephia for four years and 65,000 and I would have to say that aside from a few problems with the gas gauge and wiring harness that were corrected under warranty, the Kia has been a great buy. Contrary to what a "major consumer magazine" may say about the Sephia, I say that it handles well, the interior is comfortable for me (6ft+, 225lb), and that it has great pick up. As when I bought this car newe Kia is a great bargain when compared to the Corollas, Civics, Proteges out there which are over- priced. After four years, 67k on the road, the body integrity remains great w/ no rattles or creaks that I may have feared/expected when I bought it.

A Decent Buy

1998 Kia Sephia 4dr Sedan


Review

It's a good buy considering what I paid for it brand new and the use I have gotten out of it. I paid about 10.5k including taxes and a few additions like alloy wheels, power windows/locks and remote keyless entry. My monthly payments hover around $150 after a $1,500 downpayment. I'vet ravelled from Ohio to Florida or New York and back about five or six times. The car has never let me down nor given a hint that it would. This is an ideal new car for those on a budget like me and students.
