2010 Kia Rondo Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Breaking with segment trends, the Rondo is much smaller than most other vehicles with three rows of seats. It slots below Kia’s larger Sedona and competes with the other mini-minivan on the market, the Mazda5.

With its third-row bench, the Rondo can seat seven. There is a choice of a four-cylinder engine or a small V-6.

New for 2010
A two-person third-row seat is now standard on all trim levels, which also get turn-signal indicators in the side mirrors and an EcoMinder indicator that rewards efficient driving by turning green.

Exterior
The Rondo has a two-tier grille, large headlights and openings on each side of the bumper that can house optional fog lights. An accessory body kit includes fender flares and ground effects for visual flare.

  • New designs for 16- and 17-inch wheels
  • Standard power mirrors
  • Standard automatic headlamps
  • Optional roof rails
  • Optional chrome door handles and side moldings
  • Optional power sunroof
  • Optional fog lamps

Interior
The Rondo now has three standard rows of seats that can accommodate seven people, though larger passengers won’t want to climb into the third row.

The Rondo’s interior features rounded dashboard panels and air vents. The gauges and center controls have orange illumination. The Rondo has some innovative storage solutions, including a dashboard shelf atop the glove compartment.

  • Standard air conditioning
  • Standard power windows and locks
  • Standard keyless entry
  • Standard 50/50-split third-row bench

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
