Pros: "Low miles, new battery, dependable"

"The car has been one of the most dependable cars I have ever known. It drives flat footed and is safe at any speed I have ever taken it to. Due to personal situations I drove it very little for about a year. I then renewed the license and drove it down the street and it passed the California Smog Certificate. The only problems it has are the A/C compressor needs to be replaced, the brake 'ABS' light goes on (though the brakes are fairly new, the paint is tired, and the drivers side back door outside handle has broken. I would keep it other then I have three vehicles and two drivers."

"We bought this van used. We researched and found it had a pretty good rating and great reviews. Not long after we bought it we had to fix problems with the coolant system. It was good for awhile, but right after it hit 100,000 we had to put in a transmission. We had the transmission replaced in January 2013. Since we have had some minor issues, but it has been pretty reliable. Recently we started having a wobbling feeling in the back and sometimes when you shut it off you have to wait about ten minutes for it to start. I had my mechanic look at it and there are more problems, AC Compressor, freeze plug, trailer arm, just to name a few. The diagnosis is terminal and I guess we should start looking for a new car."

"I replaced the timing chain about 45,000 ago, and have never had a mechanical problem with this car. I love that I took the two back bucket seats out--all four are "portable" and have lots of room for sleeping and sports equipment. Good gas mileage. Only---not so good heat and AC."

"I have been plagued with driving issues from this van since purchase. I will be forced to sell it as I cannot afford to fix it anymore! I invested over $8000 and i've only owned it SIX months. Resale on it is $5000. Now it needs a timing chain ($600) and a new wheel bearing ($300) and that is IT. I'm DONE with you Kia."

"Good look, great gas mileage, comfortable and roomy interior. I just wish the power seat lowered a little more but love the lumbar support.I really like how the 4 rear bucket seats all are remove able if extra space is needed."
