so far the car has been good we had one
recall something to do with something
in the gas tank but we took it back to
the dealer and it was fixed in less
then 30 min. so far nothing else has
happened. Tires are a different
thing.they suck.they need to find a
different kind of tire to put on the
car they are fine if you dont have to
drive in snow. but trust me dont drive
the car off the lot in the tires that
are on the car if it snowing out. but
other then that it a nice car. theres
plenty of room in the back for a car
seat. but if you have to put two in
dont plan on anyone else riding back
there. but we like it.
storage space and lay down seats in the
back to make more trunk room
I can't say anything bad about this
car. I've owned it for 9 months and
for basic reliable transportation, you
can't go wrong. I wouldn't buy it new,
since it depreciates so fast, but as a
used car, it's not bad! It's fun to
drive with the manual tranny, I took a
1st and a 2nd in the local autocrosses
with only upgraded 17" wheels and kuhmo
tires:) I also added a CD player.
I enjoy how nimble it feels and I like
the manual tranny.
WE GOT THIS 2002 KIA IN MAY 2002. IN
FEB. 2003 PAROMOUNT KIA HAD TO PUT IN A
NEW TRANSMISSION AND NOW IT IS DEC.2003
AND THE NEW ONE IS GIVING US TROUBLE.
SO WE WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER KIA. WE SEE
WHY THEY GIVE THE 10 YEAR/100,000 MILE
WAR. . BECAUSE YOU NEED IT .
WE LIKE THE WAY THE CAR LOOKS LIKE A
SPORTS CAR AND IT DRIVES GOOD.
PUT IN AMERICAN MADE TRANSMISSIONS ,MAY
THEY WILL LAST LONGER.
I have had nothing but trouble with
this car. It was built cheaply. It
shakes and rattles and every month I
seem to have to pay for something to
get fixed. Warranty is horrible.
Wheels and brakes defective! I've had
them fixed several times and they
continue to cause me problems. It can
only get worse.
