Love the warranty on kia vehicles

The ac compressor is cracked so the vehicle has no ac, costs more to fix it than the vehicle is worth. The door lock actuators break regularly aldo.

- John R

It is very reliable and dependable.

Gas tank leaks, check engine light on, front end problems ac don't work and it's been very reliable the past three years and I love to drive it.

- Cassandra Schultz C

it runs smooth for the most part but if you don't keep the oil changed it can be a bit sluggish

well it's not a bad car but it is from 2002 so I have had a couple of maintenance issues nothing major just a new starter and a new fuel pump
