Love, love, love this vechile! Very roomy and comfortable for driver and passengers. Handles great. Fast pickup. Rides like a luxury 8 cylinder. Gets the great gas mileage of the 4 cyl it is. I would definitely recommend this vehicle!
Value meets comfort

Big enuf for 6'1''driver, lots of comfort (door post not in way to get in, driver seat pumps up, lots of head/leg room, back seats have real room, fast AC), small enuf to park downtown (no longer than my old camry), easy to drive (enuf power with 6 cyl to merge/scoot, tighter turning radius than camry), room to haul lots of stuff in back with easy fold down seats. No digital control screen (could care less). Plugs in - yup, front & back. Looks like every other crossover - Lexus, Rav,etc but no head turner. Negs? Listed as a station wagon (ignor that, its a crossover and sits up higher than sedans), roof rack but no crossbars, gas mileage normal 22/28 but wish it were better, no cargo bay liner, floor matts cheap and ill fitting, no window tinting.
All of which is easy to live with/fix. Overall, a best price car in its category. Yea Kia!
a good, solid, inexpensive car

i picked four stars comparing this car to other cars in the basic size group - it's not quite as nice, not quite as luxurious, not quite as comfortable.
BUT - it's definitely nice, luxurious, and comfortable *enough*, especially for the price! it has an aux plug in the console ready for an ipod, comes satellite ready, has an easy-to-use cruise, and drives really smooth. plenty of room for adults on the back seat, even though i like my driver's seat pretty far back. plenty of room for a large harnessed booster.
please consider a rondo if you're thinking rav4, cr-v, mazda5, or other small suv. it's a bit less fancy, but a lot less cost!
