Bought a 52 plate, 2.5 V6 auto with top-of-the-line SE trim for £3000 when just over 3 years old!

Good things: well equipped - tiptronic-style autobox, cruise control, ABS, traction control, leather-faced seats, electric driver's seat, remote boot and petrol flap, nice split 60/40 rear seats, proper 3-point rear seat-belts, useful cubby-holes, proper climate-control. Brisk progress possible with the larger engine.

Bad things - only 4 speeds in the autobox, poorish fuel consumption (typically an average of 25-26 mpg), nasty plastics in the interior, seats are only partially leather and have vinyl backs (ugh!), ride poor on rough surfaces with a knocky, "whumpy" sound, though smooth on the motorway, cam-belt replacement by dealer is VERY expensive, headlights not the best (but improved when I fitted aftermarket, brighter bulbs) and the Kia dealer is pretty useless (but may improve now as it has been absorbed into the Ford dealer).

On the whole, it's a decent, cheap car for the price and specifications.
