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.
2010 Kia Rondo
2010 Kia RondoAADRW - Lake Forest, CA03/07/2011
We were looking for a car/van that sat 7 passengers. With two small children in carseats, we wanted a car that could carry all of us, plus grandparents if needed. We looked at minivans but their mileage is just terrible and we could only afford one that was over 5 years old. We considered the Mazda 5, but the third row simply didn't look safe. With my Rondo, I can fit 6 people comfortably, we average 24 mpg, I can park it on a dime, and even though it's a used car it's still under the original manufacturer's warranty. We are VERY happy with this purchase. My one criticism is the upholstery is a very light beige that is easy to get dirty.
Really Nice Car!
2008 Kia RondoEndo - Athens, GA04/07/2009
Bought the Rondo a little over a month ago, and so far we love it! It has tons of room inside, and with the back seat down you can fit all sorts of stuff in it. It has plenty of cupholders for everybody and they're pretty sturdy. We also like the fact that it has air vents for the back seat so that your passengers can feel the a/c or heat just as well as you can. It has a lot of power (we got the V6), and the brakes will stop on a dime. Although we've only had it for a short time, it's been a great car!
