    My car

    I bought my Kia Magentis 2.5 in 2004 and it has never had anything go wrong with it, It always starts first time and is ecomonical to run if driven carefully. It is comfortable to drive and the road holding is good. The only down side are the alloy wheels and they are rubbish. I would recommend anyone to buy the Magentis, they are a cheap car but only in price. The build quality is out of the top drawer.

    My car

    The Kia dealer loaned me this car for a week while getting my new Sportage ready. This is a way undervalued car. For the price, I think it is great. It's comfortable and very quiet.

    The only problem I had was its low profile. This did not help my bad back when getting in and out. If I were in the market for this sort of saloon, I would be happy to buy one. There is a new model in the pipeline and the way Kia is improving its line-up, it should be worth waiting for. See my Sportage review for comments on residuals.

    My car

    It's great value for money, comfortable and reliable.

    Why do you not include this model it on your valuations listing for second-hand cars?
