Advice: Purchase the 2.7V6 EX edition.With nearly 15k miles on my 08 Rondo V6 EX, I couldn't be happier with my decision to purchase this vehicle. It has a quiet, roomy interior, gauges and controls are layed out well and visibility is excellent. I drive nearly 100 miles a day and the Rondo's performance and handling are better than I expected. Passing power is smooth and the responsive steering makes highway and driving on backroads pleasant. Loaded with safety features, I feel safe and secure in the Rondo. I'm 6'3' and traveling for long periods of time are not a problem in the Rondo. The steering wheel controls, door panels and dash board light up nicely at night. Stereo system, Aux. input work well with my IPOD touch. And again, the cabin is quiet and the engine hums at 80mph, with low 2500 RPMs. In idle, the engine is almost silent. Fit and finish are excellent. A great value for the dollar. With all the glass - I tinted my windows. I recommend this. Again. The 2.7 liter V6 EX Rondo is well worth a test ride! Note: I use to sell Kia as an Internet Manager and keep in mind that Kia's aren't 'cheap'. Their price is based on US Currency verse Korea's. You buy more with the US Dollar for Korean products. Kia is a fine name and product!
