Review
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.
Favorite Features
Exterior looks Leather wrapped steering wheel?? (polishing a turd is still a turd) Reliable transportation
Suggested Improvements
Weak weak engine Small interior High RPMs at highway speeds Interior "buzz" on the highway Driving in snow? Better off walking
