I have nothing to say but good things about my KIA Sephia 2001. Got the car at 42 000 miles for $3,100 and sold it at 134 000 miles. I owned it for 8 years and during this time there was manor repairs/maintenance - alternator, break pump, rotors, breaks, spark, plugs, ext. However the car is dependable and just kept
going without major issues. Very economical on gas. It was basic, manual transmission, locks and windows, but that never bother me. Overall, best value for the $, would recommended for anyone who values
dependable and economical over convince.
the manual is great for driving in the snow, since you can use a lower gear to control your speed
ac and heat is amazing, car warms in no time
29 - 31 mpg
seats fold for extended space
fits into any parking space
sound system pretty good
head lights not the best cover
not the best on high speeds, but that to be expected for the price range
ac affects a little the performance, never bothered me
some rust on the lower body after 9 years of manufacturing, but that's to be expected for older car
