Nice Little Transportation. — Kia Rondo gets great gas mileage and is easy to handle. Seats are up higher and it doesn't seem to have much of a blind spot.

Kia Is Building Good Cars — Drove the silver Rondo on a 3 hour trip from Topeka last night. The little car handled the wet road and rain very well. Gas mileage was good. There was plenty of room for all my stuff. Great car for the money.

No body damage, no interior damage,  4 new tires and 4 wheel alignment April 2011.

Cons

This vehicle is for a family.  I do not think it is for a single guy.

Ride And Runs Great. — Car runs and drives great, very quite, no rattles or anything. Gets around 22 mpg now, I have installed Royal Purple oil in the engine and has made a difference in performance as well as mpg. I do not drive a lot, but my car has to be in top condition, I am disabled and unable to walk long distances.

Love It! — Tons of room. drives great, headroom, stuff room. Pretty good gas mileage, 4cyl has no problem keeping up with traffic. and more. car is light and you can feel it when it is really windy. tall wagon shape and light weight help in all areas except high winds/ cros winds.

Pros

Engine Performance, Dashboard Layout, Roomy 2nd Row, Big Trunk w/ plenty of compartments, Front Visability, Autostick, Sound System

Cons

Exterior Styling, Sloopy Transmission Shift Points, Gas Mileage could be better, Car squeaked with just 18k on it.

Two Week Rental Car — I think the arm rests need to be closer to the driver. It was kinda hard for me to get comfortable. The car would sometimes squeak if I went over a bump (with just 18,000 miles on the odometer). And I was expecting much better gas mileage from this crossover-like car. And I hated the exterior styling. But there were some positives. I did like the Auto stick feature. The engine was pretty peepy (the only reason this car gets 3 stars instead of 2) & did have a good roar for a V6. There were a lot of compartments in the spacious trunk. And the 2nd row was very roomy. The interior styling wasn't bad & the sound system was pretty good. It wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't buy one either. This is clearly a girl car. Hell, there's even a hook for a purse on the passenger side.
