"this car has been very good overal for a throw-away car (low resale value). good mileage (33-37 mpg); pretty spunky performance (with K&N air filter);would have rather had another color (black was only color available with desired equipment when i bought it in oct. '03); one other drawback is lack of aftermarket or oem parts except through kia. would probably buy another."

Pros: "Fun to drive - easy to park - good on gas!"

Cons: "No engine power - Not comfortable - Cheaply made!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"This vehicle is a decent small compact car. The quality of this particular year is OK but could have been a lot better. They have improved this vehicle a lot since 2005 making it better. You generally get what you pay for but this car is fairly easy to work on and most of the parts are cheap. It is a great little car for running around town but its not much of a open highway/expressway vehicle for power or comfort. The gas mileage is fairly good!"
