My Kia is great
"This is a great car it runs and performs perfectly. It drives like a dream. One of the best things is its four-wheel disk brakes. I have never seen brakes this good and that perform this well. Everything about this car is great no problems at all. This is the best car I have ever owned. Very well pleased."

"Had the car for 6 months. Pros: nice driving, quiet runs smooth. Lots of nice standard equipment (EX) heated mirrors and Bluetooth standard. Cons: somewhat annoying gearbox, it does not roll as well as my 12 year old infiniti. I get about 29 mpg on my short commute, had hoped for a bit better. "
