It seems to need a lot of repair, and for such a compact vehicle, it doesn't get as good of gas mileage as I would expect. With such a tiny car, and all the highway driving we do, I would expect around 35 mpg, but we get more like 28 mpg.

It's a compact car, so it's easy to drive and find parking. It's an old car, and it's a base model, so it has zero bells and whistles. The gas mileage is ok, but not as good as my 2001 Toyota Corolla was, that my daughter got in a wreck with, even though this car is smaller. I don't like that it has a lot of proprietary parts, so you have to order them specially. And it seems like it needs to go into the shop a lot. If I had to do it over again, I would probably not buy this car, but we bought it used just a year and a half ago, because we were desperate to have another car with three of us in the family driving.

It has a Bluetooth radio so I can connect my phone.

My car is very small and compact which is perfect for the city. It has great gas mileage and I like that it sits low to the ground. It is perfect size for just me and does not require much maintenance. It is a cute orange and the Kia people are so nice when I take it in to get serviced. I have not had any issues with it at all and I have been driving it for about six years now. I love my little Kia.

A tiny car that can get you places! Simple, functional and really economic.

The problems I usually have are only on non practical functions of the vehicle, like the lever to adjust the seat, and it is pretty slow to get to high mph, also I had to install the alarm for the car since it didn't have it. I never had a problem starting up the car, neither a problem going on the highway, the a. C. Works wonderful since is a small car so it cools really fast.
