I have been driving the Rondo now for the past 5 weeks. I purchased it with less then 13k on it. So I still have the remainder of the 60k warranty. It is a pleasure to drive in town and on the highway but is not as steady in turns at turnpike speeds. But if you back off on the speed a bit it pulls through the turns nicely. The V6 engine is peppy but I'm disappointed with the fuel economy. I expected a couple of MPG more on the highway then what is stated on the sticker but I have to nurse it a bit to get the sticker MPG. It averages 26mpg highway and that is if you don't push it too much. Not bad but I also have a 99 Ford Contour V6 with 125k that gets over 30 mpg on the highway. Kia has a ways to go with their fuel economy. But all in all it is a fun car to drive and serves me well.

This is a nice little car with great head & leg room. Not a solid build for the money as there are rattling sounds as you drive. The 4 cylinder engine has great pick up, but a little disappointed in the milage. You have to baby it to get the milage on the sticker. Running the AC definitley kills the gas milage. Great car to manipulate the roads and parking.

Am really enjoying the new car - lots of room to throw the dogs in the back (or help my youngest move stuff into the dorm). Good gas mileage & fun to drive!
