Maximum Value In A Large Luxury Sedan — No one has any idea this car is a Kia. Guests in the car always comment on the good looks, comfort and amount of room inside the car - and in the trunk. From the front it looks like a Mercedes - from the rear it looks like a Lincoln. The leather seats are very comfortable, even after 10 years and 90,000+ miles Even the carpets and mats have held up well. If this car had all-wheel-drive and a more European type suspension you wouldn't know it was not a Mercedes sedan. It's hard to imagine more style, luxury, reliability, performance and comfort from a large sedan that can be bought today for WELL under $7,000.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Unexpected luxury and reliability in a full-size sedan that cost far less than comparable cars in it's class. The build quality is excellent, with only a few shortcuts taken. The front end suspension, while a bit 'soft', holds its alignment well, And it runs on 87 octane fuel.

Cons: A few quirks: inability for fog lights to be on separately from low beams... outdated LCD display is tied to the factory [Infinity] stereo - side mirror memory tends not to work well.

Great Drive! — Had this baby for almost 2 years now. The only thing that's ever gone wrong so far has been the throttle sensor (twice) but it's always been under warantee (no cost to repair). I just drove it to and from Florida and the only problem I had was a careless woman hitting me on the way home, lol.

Pros: The style, features, ride and quality you get for the cost.

Cons: Honestly can't think of any.
