Full Disclosure: I was invited to a Kia event. This post was not required. All opinions below are my own.
My first experience with Kia was back in 2003. To be honest, I didn’t like it. I was buying a car with my husband and we decided a Kia wasn’t for us. We weren’t the only ones: According to the JD Power Initial Quality Study from 2001, they were ranked at the bottom. After that, I never really paid much attention to the brand, until recently.
It drove like a dream. I thought it would feel like a huge truck but it didn’t. It handled great on curvy roads and when I pushed the gas, it went. Like seriously, I love that even with the air on, it did its job.
