I purchased the most simple model of this car, so there aren't many bells and whistles such as electric locks or windows. Overall, it has served us for ten years with minimal mechanical issues. It has been serviced the entire time and only one owner, so that may have much to do with it. It is pretty small inside and out, and now that I have three young children, our family just doesn't fit anymore. Just recently had an issue with the passenger side tie rod, and we are choosing to fix that ourselves. It has some get-up-and-go compared to our minivan and a tight little turning radius. I like the upholstery. It is dark and very easy to clean. It is small and sleek looking, but a fairly feminine build which suits me fine as a woman. The back seat will not accommodate three car seats, and a... (more)
Story
Surprisingly, this vehicle drove around in the recent Matthew Storm here in Virginia Beach and didn't break down when we had passed many others who were stranded. We drove the vehicle down our street in water up to the windows, and it kept chugging along right up into our angled driveway. I've never seen a vehicle 2/3 submerged before, and I was sure it would die, but luckily, it is still bein... (more)
Pros
First off, the car was inexpensive and well within our price range; we needed something simple to get from A to B with decent gas mileage. I am a fairly short woman at 4'9", and I can comfortably reach the pedals and see over the dash of this vehicle which is more of an issue in most vehicles than you would think. As I mentioned earlier when we have had to work on issues with this vehicle, it has been fairly easy to get in and out in a day or two. The parts are also fairly inexpensive, which really helps when you are on a budget. It is comfortable for both driver and front passenger, but t... (more)
Cons
This vehicle is definitely not meant for either very tall individuals or families in my personal opinion. A moderate-sized adult backseat passenger will have the front seats pushing into their knees more often than not, and your children will be so close that they will be arguing constantly. There is a spot above the driver's side door frame that started to peel, and now the paint needs to be touched up in this spot. We have had a few issues with the front end. Most recently the tie rod has gone out, which caused the vehicle to drive pretty noisily. We have had some uneven wear on the tire... (more)

Overall, I really am glad that I bought this car. It is difficult to find decent cars for under $4,000. I had a fender bender in October 2016, and my registration on the car I had then was about to run out in December. I could drive my car, but it was totaled since it would take more money to fix than the car was worth. My budget was less than $4,000, and I looked for a decent used car right up to the end of December. The Kia was smaller than I've driven, but I have really enjoyed it because I can "scoot" around in smaller spaces, and I get good gas mileage. I only paid about $3,850.
Story
I locked my keys in the car once; fortunately, I was in front of the house. I didn't have a spare key since they cost about $40. I hadn't locked the keys in the car in at least 20 years, so I was anxious. The price to unlock the car was only half of what it would have taken to get the spare key. Whew!
Pros
The car is in good shape except for the paint on the hood. The salesman said he had experience with Kais since his daughter wrecked one. He said his daughter rolled in the car several times, and his daughter was completely unharmed. The airbag system really worked. The interior looked pretty good, as if it had not been used much. The trunk has enough room since the back seats fold down. The mileage on the Kia was pretty high (around 156,000 miles), but if I didn't know that already, I wouldn't expect such high mileage. The windows are manual, so no problems there.
Cons
As I mentioned, the paint on the car is in pretty fair condition except for the hood which needs to be repainted or replaced. The car came with an aftermarket stereo, which is not ideal because it won't turn off. There is a problem with the driver's side rubber insulation since it starts to come off sometimes. I have been able to press the rubber back into place, but my mechanic indicated it would be fairly expensive to replace. The only thing I have had to replace is the battery. I think it would be about $40 to get a replacement key. Also, the color is orange, which is not my favorite
