    2005 Kia Sorento

    Cons: I wish it had heat and ac both front and back.

    I love my KIA. I bought it used with 17000 miles. I love being able to call the shop if I have a problem and getting right in and getting it fixed. The only problem I have had is my tail lights kept blowing out. They finally put in a heavy duty plug and haven't had a problem since. I also had a sensor go out and it took a couple of days to fix it or get the part, but I was on a trip anyway, so it still wasn't a problem.

    2006 Kia Sportage

    a very good car

    Pros: 4 wheel drive

    Cons: seats are cold in winter

    4 wheel drive works very well in winter snow and light off-roading. Drives nice on highway

    2006 Kia Sportage

    Loved the car when I bought it. Very comfortable great performance. We are selling it because we have 129,000 miles on it and last year I spent $2600 in repairs and this year already $600. Kia repair shops are by far the worse i have ever dealt with. Many times took it back two and tree times to get the same thing fixed. After $3000 miles took it in for my first oil change. They did something wrong and it threw a rod because of it. Had to replace the engine. Of course it was on guarantee but that was just the beginning. Will never own another Kia.

    2011 Kia Sorento

    Car Reviews

    Pros: Most features, best priced, highest quality product available.

    Cons: NOTHING!

    I love my Sorento! I researched 10+ SUV's and this one is hands down the best value out there in terms of overall quality and eye catching design. Gotta love the 10 Year Warranty. I bought mine from Jim Butler, Kia and dealt with Andrew and got it at a great value.

    2011 Kia Forte Koup

    Great car!

    Pros: Bluetooth, 6-speed auto, USB inputs

    Cons: Car could have more power to match the looks

    The Koup is my 4th Kia and I have to say the best. over all I love the car-looks great, drives good and is very comfortable. I have the EX. Power could be better, but not bad for a 156HP 4cy with 6-speed auto. I love this car and recomend it to anyone that wants a nice looking 2 door car for a good price.

    2011 Kia Rio

    Plainest little car you'll ever love

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: Appearance

    This is my second 'base model' Kia Rio, I love it! Never have to drop a gear going up big hills. I like the simplicity, feeling the road, and reliability. My last Kia didn't owe me a dime when I finally traded it at 130k. Great warranty, nice car as long as your ego isn't hooked to the cool factor of your ride.

    2010 Kia Forte

    Think twice before buying

    Pros: Its a tie between the slipping transmission and the customer friendly service department

    Cons: Everything

    I've got less than 10K miles on this piece of Korean krap, and the transmission slips, it's full of rattles and squeaks, and the service department at my local dealership can't duplicate any of the problems, so therefor they can't fix any of the problems.
