A great compromise on a plugin hybrid

I really like this car. I love being able to avoid the gas station for months at a time and using a more responsible form or energy. The mileage is also incredible :500 miles on one tank, and of course 24 "free" electric miles every time you charge it up. The charger can get dicey: you have to make sure it is fully inserted into the port. Also, be aware that this model comes with no spare, only a "can of goop", which is not going to be able to repair a serious flat. There have been transmission problems reported with this model. Mine was actually bought back by Kia from the original owner because of a transmission problem. But, all in all, I really enjoy owning this car.

Many issues that are not model specific

I have been to the dealer multi times in just over a year with issues. Can't wait to get rid of the car and go with a different company.

Horrible car, do not buy or believe the mpg

This car has nothing but problems. The brakes continue to lock up and i get about 35 mpg on electric. Dealership says thats normal. What happened to 105 mpg it avertises? The car pulls to the right due to the electric system constantly regenerating even when not in the electric mode. I had to have the vehicle fixed twice, towed once, and this is all within the first 1500 miles. Kia will not take responsibility for the defect. I am highly afraid car will start on fire due to the overheating brakes. Heat radiates off them despite driving for only 5 miles on freeway.
