1998 Kia Sephia LS 1.8 DOHC from North America
I wouldn't give this car the liberty to sit in a junk yard!
I first got this car about three months ago and it is already giving me problems. I bought it used and I can see why the previous owner wanted to get rid of it. The things that have went wrong in my 3 months of owning it is:
The overdrive goes out
It has a hard time going into reverse
It has shut off on me
The inside falls apart easily (for example I touched the air vent and it feel apart)
I was cleaning it and a piece of paint come of it about as big as my fist.
The heater went out of it momentarily
It has no power at all (I know it's a 4 cylinder, but it should have more than it does)
The radio doesn't pick up anything
Plus the service engine light comes on.
There has been other things that have went wrong with it, but I can't remember them now. I have this advice for anyone considering a Kia. Don't buy it, it will give you more trouble than you deserve.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
