WARNING!!!!! by Unlucky Kia owner on 08/27/2002. Trim: 1997 Kia Sephia GS, Owned 5 years.

Overall review: STAY AWAY FROM THIS CAR

My Worst Nightmare by Screwed in Va on 04/21/2002. Trim: 1997 Kia Sephia LS, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Very little
Cons: This has been the WORST car I have ever bought. It has had the Transmission, Distributor and Cap, Clutch and several other things replaced some in the 1st year. The check engine light often comes on. It needs Oil more often than it seems like it should. The people at the Dealer would always tell me they can't get it to duplicate what I said it was doing and just never seemed trained enough or the car itself. I am quite sure it is a lemon and now I am stuck with this piece of junk that has a very low resell value. This car has been a NIGHTMARE. DO NOT BUY A KIA
Overall review: JUNK JUNK JUNK

Great First Car by Royce-Pittsburgh area on 06/30/2012. Trim: 1997 Kia Sephia RS, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Its my first car, and its been a very good car. My aunt's mom bought it brand new in '97 and its been in the family since, i am the third owner with it having just over 55,300 miles on it. It drives just as nice as my grandmothers 2011 Hyundai Elantra. it has better than what i expected acceleration, and handling.
Cons: It makes me feel small on the highway next to large BMWs and minivans, especially buses and tractor-trailors.
Overall review: I would buy another Kia in a heartbeat.
