Mixed feelings. Under-rated, but I won't buy a Kia again.

ReviewThis was my first college car. I bought it in summer of 2010 with 96,000 miles on it. I blindly went into buying it, no research done.
I ended up falling in love with this little car. I drove it to school and back SEVERAL times (10 hour drive), and went on many road trips in it. It also made it up my mile-long dirt road at home. I'm surprised it lasted.
PROS: great gas mileage, runs well with normal maintenance
CONS: noisy engine, doesn't accelerate well with the AC on, tin can, cheaply made, manual windows and locks, tiny back seat
I drove it to 118,885 miles. It could have lasted longer, but I hit a deer and totalled it. :(
Lesson learned, I won't buy a Kia again. But it was fun.
Best FeaturesGreat gas mileage, good for long drives, comfy front seats
Worst FeaturesExterior could be less tinny, because this car, and people in this car, sure won't last in accidents.
