From the outside you think wow, what a
sporty ride? NOT The 125hp 5speed
manual is very disappointing. I have
drove automatics with smaller engines
that are peppier. Going up a hill with
the A/C on..forget about it. I realized
I wasn't getting a "sports" car but
come on Kia the gas mileage isn't
terrific and the car weighs a little
more than a cow here in IA and this is
the best you can do? The interior is
decent and clean. If you are over 6 ft
be warned. After 40k miles no major
happenings.Great car for a college
student who just needs A to B trans.
That is about all you should expect
because that is all you'll get.
Leather wrapped steering wheel??
(polishing a turd is still a turd)
Weak weak engine
High RPMs at highway speeds
Interior "buzz" on the highway
Driving in snow? Better off walking
