After test driving the new Sonata and Kia Optima I decided to buy the 2010 Kizashi and am thrilled I did! First 700 miles I am getting 26 mpg city. Only drove a few miles on the freeway so far and the car showed 36 mpg! This car isn't even broke in yet and is only rated 23/30 mpg but gets much better mpg's. Love the build quality, fit and finish, styling, handling, and quality of the interior materials. The seats are very comfortable and the ride is sporty but never harsh. Absorbs bumps very well and is very quiet at hwy speeds. Smooth and solid ride with very adequate power. This car is my "BMW" at a lot less money. A blast to drive! Find myself inventing places to go just to drive it.
Ride, handling, comfort, styling, fit and finish, smooth and solid feel and fantastic gas mileage! A great sports sedan without the harsh, stiff ride.
The car has a vibration/rattle noise in the dash during first few miles of driving each day.The dealer is looking into the problem. Would like to see more colorful lighting for the dash gauges,
an auto on headlight switch and a carpeted trunk mat included.
