If you are looking for a vehicle with all the bells & whistles PLUS a sporty feel & exterior profile....this is the car for you! Once you test drive it you will be in love with it. Heated & cooled front seats are a wonderful feature for Texas weather. Never owned a hybrid before & Kia made me a believer. I will continue to own hybrid vehicles in the future.

Bought this vehicle with only 24000 miles on it and in excellent condition. Very pleased with it so far. The original Kumho tires on it are going to have to be replaced soon. It has everything except a sunroof and traffic assist. Getting 36 mpg in town and 39 mpg highway-great for a vehicle this size. The only complaint is that the front passenger seat is TOO LOW! Why Kia???

I bought this car from a dealership about 2 years ago and its been somewhat of a nightmare. The check ev engine light constantly flashed every other time i turned it on forcing me to pull over and shut it off to reset it. After close to a year the starter battery died and in order to find the proper lead battery I had to drive from waterbury to bridgeport to get the only battery in stock. It has been 2 years of making payments and now i am hit with a 6,500 mechanic bill to replace the short engine block after it exploded driving 60 with no warning or check engine light. I have been calling the kia customer service hotline for almost 2 months now because they claimed to have “documented” my incident and said that they would connect me with a case manager to see if i could get a possible reimbursement. I call every week for updates but again and again im told that my case manager is busy and that they will send him an email. I bought this car because i thought that i would save money on gas on my daily commutes to campus and work, but now i am ending up paying an extra half of the price of the whole car to not be able to drive it as kia is in a deficit of replacement engines and i have been waiting over a month and a half for my mechanic to be able to finally acquire a new engine that isnt from another scrapped kia. I had to find a local repair shop to do the replacement as i felt that i was being taken advantage of by my kia dealership. I was appraised 2,000 for my 12,000 dollar car and when i declined the lady i spoke to suggested that i get some buddy’s and roll it on neutral into a tree. In conclusion i am really upset about this purchase as it has put a serious detriment on my emotional, social, and financial health and I urge anybody Who is a college student and thinking of buying this vehicle to save money on gas to do extra research and invest your money into a different and more reliable brand.
