The car exceeds my expectations and does everything that I want it to. It is very practical and comfortable on long journeys, it also has plenty of room and the accessories, dash and steering wheel controls are fantastic and easy to use, making life a lot easier whilst driving

Nothing serious has gone wrong, gas struts on tailgate poor in cold weather, gear change can be notchy, n?s rear wheel bearing is noisy,but dealer says it is ok. Reasonable costs for service & fuel useage, but burns more than I would expect on short runs in cold weather.

I WAS VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY HOW GOOD THIS CAR IS. I TRADED IN A BMW FOR SOMETHING MORE RELIABLE AND CHEAPER TO RUN. IT IS THAT, AND THE COMFORT GIVEN BY A 7 YEAR GUARANTEE IS FANTASTIC. I SEE THIS KIA AS ON A PAR WITH FORD OR VAUXHALL.

Good value for money, great warranty (7 years), comfortable, roomy, good to drive despite what clarkson says, economical, just a pity that it is not under 120 gms CO2.

No issues at all, save for a burnt out rear wiper, replaced under warranty. Servicing reasonable, fuel costs reasonable, insurance reasonable.

Bought car because of the many positive reviews. A rougher ride than my previous car, a Focus. But far better fuel usage

Very practical. Plenty of boot space in our estate version. Drives well, but not as well as our previous Focus estate.

Perfect apart from the power steering failing. Not as fuel efficient as claimed.
