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

by brian from Loomis | February 19, 2019

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.

getting over 70mpg with some charging

I'm happy with the car. They have a good warranty and it seems well designed and sturdy. I did have issues with the UVO head unit but they are replacing it tomorrow.
