This is what I ended up getting, and I'm actually pretty damn happy with it:




It fits all my criteria. Only 15k miles. Gets badass gas mileage (~35 mpg highway). Very reliable. Low maintenance. And I got a hell of a deal on it. I guess I sell Kias, so now I can tell people I actually own one... lol

330i ZHP. 6speed manual. 20cty/30hwy. I average 26-27mpg in mine.

Good balanced of sport and practicality.

Maintenance wise they aren't too bad, if you do the maintenance yourself. Parts are reasonably priced.

I am an atheist.
I believe I will only have this one shot at living and I intend on making the most of it.
For that reason I will never own a Kia.

You only live once, buy something you will enjoy. Please.

Isn't that the hatch version of the one that won the sports car champion? Granted this is a completely different car. But still.

Not a horrible car.

Lol, I'd happily let you drive a Kia. Then sell you one
