Summary:

Great car

Faults:

Exhaust pipe had to be replaced.

Central locking system broke down.

General Comments:

Other than these two problems the works great. I hesitated to buy a KIA because all people were saying to me what a cheap and lousy and unreliable car it is. Well I say to them thank you very much. I bought a great car at a very low price and am very pleased with it. Fuel consumption in 9l/100km in the city 7,7l/100km on open roads. Although it does not handle well when driving very fast. Great well equipped and cheap car nevertheless.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
