• Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    That I am ok.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Five people we know have bought a Kia after seeing ours!

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Maybe, I don't see why we would sell it to replace with a newer one as they are all the same and with the extended warranty why not keep it for longer? 46mpg and cheap running cost help. If we get bored then we might change it.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Anything that takes my fancy. Maybe an Evoque, new Merc SUV, estate car?

    When did you buy the car?

    April 2010

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Yes, we haggled well, with an additional finance discount on top. You could pay the finance off at any time with no additional charges. This gave another £1,000 off the stated price.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    What was the dealer like?

    Good, typical dealer though, not as smooth as say BMW or Merc.

    General layout and space.
