2000 Kia Clarus S 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Capable but unexciting
Not a lot actually, everything still works apart from the air conditioning, but it probably just needs recharging.
Poor MPG, only JUST getting 30mpg on a run and a lot less around town. Engine runs OK and has been serviced, so it can't be that??
Not nice to drive, dull and old man-ish with lifeless steering and slightly awkward steering wheel position.
Fit and finish OK, although some trim quality is cheap and flimsy. Performance is unexciting too; not much torque or flexibility.
Very relaxing cruiser though, sits at 70mph for mile after mile without trouble.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
