ReviewI purchased my KIA new in June. Got everything on it, leather, sun roof, GPS etc. I live in the mountains, and while the V-6 delivers adequate power, the transmission down shifts "very" rough, very annoying. Dealer says it is normal but I have never seen a transmission that rough. GPS very user "unfriendly" and costs lots of $ to update. Car rides and handles well and is fun to drive. Mileage very good.
Best FeaturesGreat sound system, like the satalite radio, don't loose stations in the mountains. Leather interior look great and seats are very comfortable.
Worst FeaturesDo something about the transmission!!! I would not buy another KIA because of the way it downshifts, if not for that it would be a really great car, one worth recommending to others.
