Great little car


Nothing has gone wrong.

General Comments:

Adequate acceleration.

Good handling.

I am 6'3" and I have lots of room behind the wheel, and the seats are extremely comfortable.

The ride can be a little bumpy sometimes, but is otherwise very good.

The stereo is excellent, and so is the air conditioning. The ashtray is in a funny place, and one has to take one's eyes of the road to flick ash.

It appears that Kia thought out this car very carefully, because everything seems to be so convenient...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
