I bought the truck used because it was
cheap, I have owned it less than 2
years. It has 62k miles on it. I just
brought it in for the transmission to
find out, Transmission is shot, head
gasket is blown, and I need a new
clutch. I also recently replaced the
starter and had 4 wheel drive
repaired. The truck never drove well
to begin with. Very noisy and no power
Mechanical quality is extremely
lacking. Need to upgrade everything on
IT IS A GOOD CAR IN GENERAL, VERY GOOD
IN THE SNOW, THE WIND NOISE IS JUST
ABOUT AVERAGE, AND WHEN GOING UP HILL
WITH FOUR PEOPLE IN THE CAR DO NOT EVEN
THINK ABOUT PUT THE A/C ON, THE CHECK
ENGINE LIGHT IS ALWAYS ON AND THE BELTS
SQUEEL NOT MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU
CHANGE THEM, BUT REGARLES WE ARE HAPPY
WITH IT...YOU CAN GO WRONG WITH IT
I bought my Kia new. During the first 6
months I had a few problems. The air
bag lights would not go out. I brought
the vehicle for service about 6 or 7
times and finally they fixed it.
Overall the vehicle has been reliable.
I had the front bumper repainted(the
paint flaked off) However, I used the
vehicle for a sales position. I drove
all over New Mexico, Utah, Idaho,
Arizona, Wyoming, and Texas in this
vehicle. The only thing I did was
replace the brakes and change the oil.
The vehicle ran great until 90,000
miles and then I had to replace the
Reliability, Compact Style, Smooth Ride
More Power, Rear Door hatch, and
Folding rear seats.
