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.
Rondo LX vs. EX
2009 Kia Rondoushtate - North Carolina05/03/2010
We bought a 2008 Kia Rondo EX around 11 months ago and a 2009 Kia Rondo LX 2 months ago. I have over 40 years of experience with cars and have never encountered such a quality difference between two variations of the same car.
If we had bought the LX first, we would not have purchased another Kia. We are pretty happy with out Rondo EX and generally disappointed with the LX.
2009 Kia 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.
