I'm sad about the Rondo being gone in the United States. I see tons of them here in Oklahoma so they must be being sold on the second hand market. CarMax has a lot of them. I guess Canadians are more tolerant of seat stains than Americans! haha. I think the newer Kias are ugly, and they have that red dash lighting like some Mazdas which I hate, too.
You still have your blue Rondo, Conwelpic? It's a few years old now - has it served you well?

yes, but its not blue, its Aqua Silver (Silver with a hint of green). Its a 2008 and it will be four years at the end of October. Yes, its served me very well and never had a problem with seat stains. Its getting close to 71,000 km (over 44,000 miles). Only 4 warranty claims since purchase and all taken care of without any problem, I get all my service done at my local dealer, again very good that's why I still use them.
It's still as tight and rattle free as the day I bought it. Still on original brakes and tires.
The 2012 Rondo will be still be the same MSRP as the 2011 model, but no changes in the vehicle. I would expect an early change next year with a complete overhaul or replacement. The Rondo is still a very strong seller for Kia Canada, outselling the Mazda 5 over the last three months (April to June). In June they sold 917 units, which is equivalent to selling 8700 in the US.

Our 2007 EX V6 was in an accident and written off this past March. We liked that Rondo so much that we bought a 2011 EX V6. The on-the-lot price was almost identical to that of our 2007, despite being 4 yrs newer and with a few upgrades.
Our 2007 only had one warranty claim, though I did have to replace all the brakes (partly my fault though).
