From friends who own Kias- and a finger on the Korean pulse- I can say that it should be reliable for a while- just keep up on your maintenance- but plan on gettin' rid of it before 100,000- things will start goin' south- unless you have money to burn

Thanks for the advice, I will keep that in mind.. I was thinking about owning this for a year and a half and then selling/trading it for a new vehicle purchase.

Some commonly reported problems have to do with the air- conditioning and with turning. Here's an article that covers the most commonly repair issues and thier costs: https://www.carchex.com/research-center/car-repair-cost/kia- extended-auto-warranty-soul-repair-problems/
