a very good car
Pros: 4 wheel drive
Cons: seats are cold in winter4 wheel drive works very well in winter snow and light off-roading. Drives nice on highway
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.
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.
Pros: Bluetooth, 6-speed auto, USB inputs
Cons: Car could have more power to match the looksThe 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.
Plainest little car you'll ever love
Cons: AppearanceThis 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.
Think twice before buying
Pros: Its a tie between the slipping transmission and the customer friendly service department
Cons: EverythingI'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.
2011 kia soul
