1998 Kia Sephia LS 4dr Sedan


I have owned my 98 Kia Sephia basically since new, I got it with about 5,000 miles on it and now it has over 115,000 on it. Parts can be expensive, but the motor has lasted great with no problems. The car shows no signs of quiting anytime soon, has been very reliable over the years, had a few parts break, but that is to be expected when you start putting miles on your car.

Best Features

Inexpensive purchase price. Good power, quick acceleration. Decent gas mileage. Great A to B car. More durable then expected, I really gave it a beating and it keeps on running. Great in snow.

Worst Features

Replaced rotors and brakes several times, brakes don't work that great. Had to put a new transmission in it. Engine wiring melted one. Loud at speeds over 75 mph. Door locks freeze up in the extreme cold.
