What is this discussion about?
Kia Rondo, Wagon
#4 of 51 Review quote

"Hmm. Imagine what might happen if and when Kia gets those quality scores up there among the average and above-average brands."
This was the last line from from a review in the Globe and Mail back in November 2006.
Which is interesting as here is the latest report from J.D. Powers on Initial Quality Study dated June 6th.
"Among non-premium brands, Kia posts the largest improvement in ranking, moving from 24th in 2006 to 12th in 2007"

MotorWeek--read the review or watch the video
Mostly positive review.
I would deem this short review as probably negative. The reviewer focuses mainly on his dislike of the four-cylinder transmission but doesn't say much about the V6 or anything else.

Thanks, I've added the Motorweek one to my list (like the video), I already had the Winding Road which I thought was a very poor and extremely short review, not because of any negative comments (thats what we want to know and to check it out to see if it is actually correct) but not very thorough. Their comment about competing with the HHR for example with regards to the 4 cylinder engine, I've read comments about the HHR engine saying the same thing. Makes you wonder sometimes what these testers were driving before they reviewed, as most of the negative comments on the 4 cylinder don't seem to relate to actual owners use.
What engine do you have in your Rondo "medicineman". (you didn't fill out your profile)

You can read about my thoughts on the 4 cylinder and the handful of negative reviews over here. Not that it's all that enlightening--far from it.

I think you'll get a kick out of this positive review, so check it out:
BTW, the review mentioned this: "Aux input jack for iPods and Cowon Mp3 players is coming for 2008."
