Very Economical

Economical Wise i am extremely happy with it, however it is so sluggish if i have more than just myself and my Young Son in the Front, passengers in the back and it is really struggling to get up a steep incline without having to shift it down to Third if not Second if 4 people in the Car, in that respect i am really unhappy with it. It has taken me a long time to get used to it as in all honesty it does not feel that safe when driving on Major A Roads, when alternating between the Safety and Non-Safety Function it does tend to feel rather unsteady - more so when the Safety features are on and i feel i struggle to keep a safe speed and control of the Vehicle!
Stereo - well in regards to quality sound you may aswell play an old Mobile Phone through a Baked Bin Tin, this being my Third Kia to own i am extremely disappointed in the Stereo Quality and am purely embarrassed to play any Music when i have Passengers on board, i know it is only a low key Vehicle but to sum it up Kia could do a whole lot better than fitting a Stereo that at best sounds equals that of a screaching Seagull.
