1999 Kia Sephia LS 4dr Sedan


If you really baby this car, it might reach 100K miles. During the first week, a rear shock dumped its contents on the driveway. We have had almost all the mentioned problems - dashboard curling up, door seals falling off like spaghetti, cracking and disintegrating interior plastics, blown door speakers, and of course the brakes. The metal is very thin or soft, so most of these cars now look like they were used on a target range. The seat fabric sometimes leaches something brownish from the foam below and is hard to clean. The drivers seat has a big mysterious letter "R" outlined on the lower cushion. At 71K miles now, the car is pretty much shot.

Best Features

Stereo is decent when it works. Interior design is roomy. Car came with lots of power goodies for the price.

Worst Features

Overall quality and durability of materials. Noisy over 60mph.
