from Pete's Car Smart KIA
Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 KIA Rondo
Easy to drive, great visibility, unique and stylish design, feels very solid.
Upholstery stains a bit easily.
I bought my Kia Rondo in January 2007, trading in my gas guzzling Suburban. I still needed a vehicle that I could take four people in and carry things. I got the LX, 2.4L 4 cylynder.
It has plentry of power and I get 28 MPG on the highway and 24 in town or about 26 combined. This vehicle handles exceedingly well, it is quiet and very stable. The features on my Rondo are more like you would expect to pay 30K or more for.
The visibility is superb and I plan to drive it another 3-4 years and trade for another. I could not be happier.
I highly recommend this to small families in the 5 passenger version (like mine) or larger families in the 7 passenger model.
There is no need for buying the 6 cyl. version in my view. This car is not sluggish or underpowered at all.
I have had no warranty repairs and no other repairs at all. The Volcanic Red I chose is smart looking and the paint seems durable. My wife is planning on trading her Pontica G6 next year for a KIA car as well.
When American manufacturers can make a car like this for this price, I will consider one again, but for now and maybe forever I'm staying with a KIA.
I really love this car!!!! There is plently of headroom too and adequate leg room, unless you are a very, very, tall person.
The only weakness is that the upholstery stains somewhat easily, but it also cleans easily.
