All in all if you do not already own a Kia rondo please do not buy 1.

It is a horrible vehicle. Too many internal motor problems. Not enough room in interior of the vehicle. Crammed and not comfy. Also vehicle sits to low to the ground. You can feel every bump in the road. Horrible suspension, undercarriage is rotted out. Due to the low sitting to the ground car. Should never own a Kia rondo if you plan on living in a cold, snowy environment. On the plus side of things, it does get really good gas mileage. Also the trunk space is very roomy. The Kia rondo looks like a small minivan. It is a very peculiar looking vehicle.

Looking to re-home this Kia! It has maintenance details.

This is a 2008 Kia rondo black in color. It has been a reliable vehicle and well maintained. (all of the service tickets are in the glove box. ) It will soon roll over 100, 000 miles. I have used it to take my dogs to the mesa, but the seat is covered with a dense plastic cover-up and then a bedspread. It is easy to fold down the seats to make more room to haul large items. The driver side seat belt even has an extender.

It's a very reliable vehicle with almost no problems.

I love it's roominess inside, and it's reliability. It's comfortable to drive, and gets fairly good gas mileage. My only complaint is that my A/C quit working, and the shop wants way too much money to replace the compressor and clutch, so I go without. Luckily, where I live doesn't get very hot regularly - only occasionally, and after having lived in the Nevada desert, I can tolerate some heat ... for a little while.
