Best value I've owned - 139k mi no repairs!
If you can find one used and it's been properly cared for, buy it! This baby is the Korean Energizer Bunny! I bought it new in July 2010, at over 139,000 miles, the only two times I needed help for it were a dead battery and a $2.99 O ring in the radiator that failed on my way to work one morning. Maintenance is not cheap, but worth it for a car that faithfully gets you where you're going. The only negatives are the awkward headrests (took a while to get it into a position that allows my head to remain upright) and the ride is a bit like a pickup truck--a non-luxury one. Gas mileage is great; averaging 28 MPG, all non-highway driving. My daily commute is 54 miles total, half 55 mph and half stop-and-go 45 MPH or less. I do play the lights when possible to avoid wasting time and gas that way. Have replaced tires twice. Took it on a 3k mile trip last summer; it loved the open road. Finally, whenever anyone asks me if I like my Kia, I answer with a resounding "YES!" When this one finally gives up, I'll first look at another Kia to replace it.
After 7+ yrs ownership, still maintenance-free
I bought this Kia new in March 2010 as a second car. After 7 years and 70,000 miles, I can say this car has NEVER REQUIRED REPAIRS (other than routine oil changes and a new battery and set of tires after 5 yrs). What more can you ask of any car. The paint finish is outstanding and generous headroom is a plus for me (I'm 6' 5"). About the only fault I can find is the radio's dim LCD display, which is impossible to see in bright sunlight. Also, at highway speeds, the cabin is not the quietest.
I love my kia
I love my new Kia. It's the first one I have ever owned and I would and will definitely recommend it to others.
