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
Pros: all around airbags.
Cons: liked all of itLove the look... the way it handles.. small but roomy... great look and very convient.. great gas mileage..
Pros: The gas usage and the mp3 input.
Cons: The size of the interiorI found the kia spectra to be a very wise financialy sound purchase it is great on gas consumption, very durable and trustworthy. But not for drivers over 6'0 tall.
Kia Sedona 2007
Pros: Very roomy and comfortable. Saftey features.
Cons: I don't have a MP3 player like my friend's new vanI enjoy my van. It is stylish and comfortable. My friends and family love my van. They loved it so much that my sister and best friend went out and brought one. I love the safety features and towing features.
WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR THE WORLD
Pros: The look and function.
Cons: Blind spot.I absolutely love this car! It gets amazing mileage and seats five (including driver) comfortably. Sporty vehicle and get for young and old alike. Sound system is amazing and KIA is great on warranties. Very customizable car with endless options and a million possiblities :) love this car and am very happy with what I got.
Bob is impressed
Pros: Design and warrenty
Cons: nothing at this pointI traded in a2003 Toyota highlander with 112000 miles, great car, but parts where super high, so I went for the Sorento with the four cylinder engine, Good choice, quality is great and it does everything that the highlander did but some what cheaper. I live in Arizona and all my driving is long distance and on the interstate, mostly with the cruise at 80 mph. The four is more then adequate. I am a convert, sorry Toyota
