Review

This car is 18 years old I've only had it for a few months and after replacing spark plugs and coils runs great! Only problem is the air doesn't work. It's very comfortable I put my seat back and just fall asleep. Only had issues with the engine and tires but after fixing works great! Definitely a car built to last!

Review

I have gotten this Kia new. It was a good car. Had some prob. But Kia fixed I have taken to a Harold Chev. Where they were only Kia mech. I gave the car to my Kia . A few later started to have prob. When about 70,000 miles car started to sound bad. Kia dealers tried to fix it every time but it always comes back like Kia just gave up. My other daughter has a Kia. 2000 hers is after 7 years she had this car. It is have fallen a part. Kia has had this in shop. Many times. Just runs bad/now they say has a bad cylinder/I have a Kia Sedona new bought 2003 have warranty for ne to fix. Have no major prob. Kia been good to me. When I told daughter how good Kia is they will never buy one. Me ether.

Review

I had been considering purchasing a '96 Camry used car but happened to see this Kia on the way to buy the Camry. The winning point was that the Kia was less than the used Camry and had an great warranty. Eight years out I have had no major problems with the car. The cv boots for left and right wheels had to be replaced in Aug '08 but it was covered under the warranty. It's a great commuter car. I have only taken it on long distance trips three times. Seats are very uncomfortable. All things considered it's a good little car. Had I purchased the Camry I would have over 125k miles on it.


Best Features

Fold down rear seat


Worst Features

They could have made it easier to replace the headlight lamps. Cheap plastic interior. Better seat support.

Review

Fun to drive! You feel like a speed racer! Consider something new as it approaches the end of the warranty. Very spacious interior (long boards fit inside)! Great for traveling students. Needs more reliable parts inside and out; very flimsy. Dashboard comes unglued, interior trunk latch doesn't work well, sits rather low to the ground, bolts welding to axle in wheels, okay gas per mile, several blinds, paint is thin, handles great on curves...


Best Features

Spacious interior, plenty of hiding spaces, impressive exterior design, fun to drive fast in, ok sound system, ok comfort.


Worst Features

Quality of its parts, higher off the ground, sit higher up inside the car, better gas per mile, more comfortable seats
