2010 Kia RondoLucky Me - Treasure Coast, FL06/07/2011
This Rondo LX has the optional third row seats, which is one of the reasons I purchased the car. With the seats down, I have enough cargo room for a bike. With the seats up, I can accommodate six passengers plus myself.
The ride is smooth and the seats are comfortable. The engine has plenty of pickup and I'm getting 20 mpg City. The most important thing to me is the a/c vents in the rear of the vehicle.
There are a lot of nice little features including three ports for charging games and phones, an MP3 player that takes a flash drive, a cubby for sunglasses, and a hook for an umbrella.
I'm very pleased with this car and hope to be driving it for several years.
2009 Kia RondoMom in OC - Orange County, CA05/18/2010
I had rented a Kia Rondo in the past and when I went looking for a new car, I thought about changing from my sedan to a crossover-type. I wasn't looking for a Rondo, per se, but the Rondo was reasonably priced and having had the experience with driving one in the past, I decided to purchase it. The car has great pick-up, lots of head room (says my 6' 3" husband!), lots of room in the back seat for my 6-year old and plenty of perks (power windows, power door locks, storage slots, the A/C vent in the back for my son is awesome!) This car has some nice pick-up for a little car and looks great. Overall, very happy with my Rondo!

2009 Kia RondoFlyboy - Franklinton, NC04/13/2010
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.
