1999 Kia Sephia 4dr Sedan


Review

Great little car, very dependable. Ride was a little rough at times on long trips. Biggest complaint was brakes needed to be replaced every 30,000 miles. Great on gas 32+ mpg, plenty of pickup. Over 135,000 miles and still in great shape, no rust and exterior finish is still excellent -- unusual for a vehicle that lives in Rochester, NY. Son drove to school and college all year round.


Best Features

Fuel economy, dependability,


Worst Features

Better brakes.

Review

I purchased this as a gas saver for the wife (35mpg). In 65 thousand miles I have replaced rotors and pads with parts from Kragen. (No more brake problems). Had to replace the horn, push the heater cable back on the control lever, lube & oils. That's it. Better than most other vehicles I've owned. Liked the Sephia so much we just bought a Kia Sorento (kept the Sephia).


Best Features

Ok, it's not a Cadillac.


Worst Features

Better rotors. Not bad for an inexpensive import.

Don't make them so cheaply and get the equipment right the first time.
