by Its.... surprisingly the most boring good car on April 23, 2020

Good used car
"Paid too much for it. Solid car for $11,000 or less. 3 years old with less than 30,000 miles. Body is pretty clean, the plastic on the front bumper was pretty scraped up when I got it. Comfortable and very fuel efficient. The transmission is kinda weird for a CVT. It's my second Kia I've owned since I was 22 and I'm almost 30. Lol.. Carfax was accurate. I recommend this car, but.. avoid over paying for it I got conned into paying $13,000 for it. It's worth around $12,000 with 28,000 miles in absolute perfect condition. So definitely research for the best price. Trade in value for this particular brand/model is deadful. $8,500 if you're LUCKY. It looks great. Its quirky but great on gas and looks like just a regular commuter car. Definitely recommend. P"
