It is an economy car
By Michelle on


1999 Kia Sephia 4dr Sedan


I bought my Kia in February of this year. I needed to get a vehicle with better gas mileage (I was driving a Explorer). I really enjoy the fuel economy but the vehicle is a very lightweight vehicle, not sure what would happen in a accident. If treated well these cars will last but you can't beat on them that is for sure. I would not put a teen in them; they may not last ( I have a 17 year old). He would destroy this vehicle not avoiding potholes etc. The one thing that has already needed to be replaced is the brakes. They go through brakes quickly, not sure why. I am already trading it in for a Mazda B2300. I don't believe it would last with my family long term.

Best Features

Gas mileage. Peppy for a 4 cylinder.

Worst Features

Better front seats. The back seat is more comfortable than the front! The carpet is very thin. Mine is worn under the pedals.
