Fun to drive! You feel like a speed racer! Consider something new as it approaches the end of the warranty. Very spacious interior (long boards fit inside)! Great for traveling students. Needs more reliable parts inside and out; very flimsy. Dashboard comes unglued, interior trunk latch doesn't work well, sits rather low to the ground, bolts welding to axle in wheels, okay gas per mile, several blinds, paint is thin, handles great on curves...

Buying this Kia was the worst mistake I ever made in buying a car. The problems started right from the beginning. The inside trunk release has never worked from the start. After several attempts it was never fixed. From there things were down hill; outside car parts like the weather seal around the back window melted and shrunk. The inside dashboard is coming unglued and the front of the dashboard is popping out. The seats are coming unsewn, the so called leather is not leather - it is wearing out. This list goes on and on.

After 4 years of owning my purple Kia,
I still love it! The warranty can't be
beat! It's cheap to maintain. Being a
hatchback makes it roommy inside. Oh,
and the trunk release works since
they've gotten a fix for it! It's
reliable, convenient, and safe. Even
nice for a Mommy with 2 small boys!

Overall I have found this to be a good
car. Bought in 2000 and 44,000 miles
later no issues still looks brand new.
I always get compliments on the sporty
look that is has. Great car for the
family just starting. Great warranty!
