The makeup of the Kia is great gives my room without being too long or bulky!

This Kia is an very good car it drives well and is very good on gas just service it and take good care of it and it will take good care of you u would but another one if I could afford one everyone should own one I just love the look of it and the feeling of having a 4-wheel drive to go where I need to go with ease I wish Kia would give me a new one ha, ha I know that will not happen, but just thought I would put that out there. Thank you for listening.

My vehicle is all white and has a grey interior.

I have no problems with my car at all. It is a regular 5 seat car and it only takes $20 to fill up the tank which you can go a great distance on. It's a perfect girly car. It is small but not way too small so it's easy to drive and handle if you are just learning how to drive. I get a regular check up on my engine and brakes so they are not a issue either. As long as you take care of the car, it will run smoothly for years.

to keep it smooth, get an alignment or checked every 4 years.

My Kia spectra five hatchback was a smooth, quiet ride. The sunroof opens quietly with on push of a button. The problems come around year 9, with a mistake of taking it to a mechanic who stripped the oil cap. Now it leaks oil and the engine light is always on. The factory speakers had to be replaced by year 7 of ownership. overall the Kia stands the test and mistakes of time.
