A friend of ours had a 2001 and it was horrible. She had major problems with it and it felt like it was going to fall a part all the time. I've heard the newer ones are better, but I've never driven them.
I had an older Saturn as a kid. It ran forever and wasn't horrible priced.
Ok, car salesman here and don't look for any apologies for that fact. Sir, you are asking about an 11 year old Kia with how many miles on it? Take if for a drive on a rough road with plenty of turns, spend some time going over the vehicles service records, check it out on CarFax, and take it to a qualified technicial for a comprehensive inspection. And, if it is a $2,000 vehicle all the above might not be worth the bother. The best advice I give you is to go out and buy the Consumer Report's automobile edition and use it when car shopping for yourself and your children.
