49,000 km, automatic transmission idles at a very low RPM, causing the car to turn off sometimes improperly.
49,000 km, brakes screeching.
50,000 km, A/C takes time to either cool or heat up the place.
50,500 km, windshield cleaner replaced, rubber was noisy and scratching the windshield.
I like this car, everybody in the family uses it. I see a lot of these Kia Picantos, some are newer models. The price was right, and it's the EX version with A/C, air bag, hydraulic steering wheel and automatic transmission, as well as leather seats.
It's really comfortable, but internal space is small for rear passengers, despite not using this car for longer commutes where people need to sit in the back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
