"I have owned my kia for 6yrs. I have had 1 minor engine fix in this 6yrs. I like Kia's. When I bought this car, I had alot of people say Kia's are bad cars. I am telling you that I would refer the make of a car to anyone."
"bought off Dealer lot with approximately 20,000 mi, been an excellent daily driver as well as taking trips.with all cars maintenance is important, having owned all major American and Japanese vehicles in my life, this one compares to the best of the best for the money.Would definitely buy another Kia."
Pros: "Reliable engine and fairly roomy for a low price."
Cons: "Doesn't like cold weather; doors/windshield freeze"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"The engine has never been a problem, save for lack of pick-up when the a/c is running. Better than expected mileage (34ish on the highway.) Fairly comfortable on the inside. The dashboard didn't crack until the 8th or 9th year, around the defrost vents. And the front doors almost always freeze shut below 30 degrees. The front windshield frosts easily in winter. Rust appeared around rear wheel wells in 7th or 8th year. Overall, worth the money I paid for it."
"Got my kia sephia for 11 years!I guess that i was luky or my car got the all best parts in year 2000!I am changing oil every 3000 miles and use only syntetic. Average mileage is 20 MPG. I do Recommend routine preventive maintenance. Now that Kia paying me back every day I drive because I dont have to buy new small car."
