2008 Kia Rondo LX 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl 5A)


I purchased my Kia Rondo in May 2010. My Saturn VUE was totaled, and fortunately, I got a good deal and was able to pay cash for the Rondo. This car is fun to drive, especially easy to access if you are short or disabled. There are two problems I have with this car. Gas mileage stinks! My SUV got better mileage than this! I get an engine knock when the A/C is on. The compressor was replaced (under warranty) but the noise continues.

Best Features

This car handles well, is comfortable to drive and I can take it anywhere.

Worst Features

Move the air intake away from the grill! The engine suffers lack of power, as it is located up against the hood/grill.

I was looking at one today. Four cyl claims to get 39 MPG. I presently have a 99 Pontiac Trans Sport and it sucks fuel as far as I'm concerned. I can get 600 km on the highway for a tank of gas. The Rondo promises better than that.
