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.

It's safe, economical, and roomy enough to run around town gathering groceries and kids.
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!
