1997 Kia Sephia 1.8 DOHC


Great car for almoust no money


Starter was rebuilt at 85000 km. The dashboard looks as if sun had burned it.

Some electrical problems.

Air bag contact was replaced.

General Comments:

I can sit comfortably inside and I am 200 cm tall.

Overall has been very reliable.

It has great power and I drive her to the max.

Fuel consumption is about 8.1L/100Km.

Top speed was 200 kmh (125 mph) with no problems, wind noise was rather loud.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1995 Kia Sephia GTX 1.6


Great car


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
