We got the car thinking it would be great as we got the model with the third row for our Grandchildren. It worked great as they are all under 80 pounds. However it would never work for an adult. The problem is that the car is falling apart. Three or four weeks into having the car the roof rail fell off. Don't know where, it was just was gone when we got home. Now another problem is happening. The emergency brake is not working. I'm hoping that it is under warranty, but since it is a brake I am not sure. The power is pretty good for a four cylinder, the gas mileage is just so so. The gas cap door doesn't shut well unless you really push it well. Ether that or this car is really a target for gas stealing.
2008 Kia RondoSteelersman - Oklahoma City, OK03/27/2012
I love my car the back seats fold down and make a great area to travel with my wolf hybrid and his buddy a yellow lab. with the seats down the upholstery where the folks sit in back stay clean the nice. The little V6 gets up and goes! The controls are all very well placed. As an older man it is so much eazier to get in and out compared to my Honda Civic.
Great Mileage, Sporty and Plenty of Room
2007 Kia RondoPamela WR - Chicago, IL06/25/2009
I live on the south-side of Chicago and had to go to Rockford, IL for the weekend. I filled the tank, left on Friday and returned on Sunday. By the following Thursday (6 days later) my tank was still half full! You can't beat that. It's roomy, sporty and has a lotta zip (get up and go), not to mention easy to park.
Be wise, buy a Kia Rondo!
