    My car

    I have had my Kia Picanto for two years now. You cannot beat the value for money running costs. It zooms up the motorway and I even overtake some very fast cars! It is easy to park and we always take it up to London instead of my husband's car. My husband reckons no one would be interested in stealing it! I can thoroughly recommend it and I have had no complaints. It has never let me down (touch wood).

    My car

    I have had my picanto now for several months and its our second car as I have a company car , but I must say for a small car its packed with extras , its very good to drive and is nippy around town. Very cheap to run and we get 55 to 60 mpg so great.

    I would recomend this little car to anyone its a great small faimly car and with the low CO2 rating its cheap to tax.

    My car

    Ive had my picanto for just over 8 months and in that time i has proved itself very well. i regualy travel to an from germany form the north east of england and for the type of car it is, it holds its own on the auto barn vey well. for my first car i made the right choice gting my picanto. the only down side i would say is that if you need a decent size boot you may strugle. but with the back seats folded all th way down its gives you more than enough space. i would recomend someone looking for a small car to have a look at one if not buying one of these fun little cars.

    My car

    I Love my little car . its a brilliant little run around , my model is a picanto 1.1 Glamour, 5 door, i bought it second hand from a kia dealers in August '07, it came with Alloys , rear spoiler and skirting , its a 55 reg and only had 5000 miles on the clock ,personally i think its a nippy little car considering the size of the engine , i used to do a lot of miles a week going to and from work all motorway driving , it keeps up with all the other cars , ok its a bit sluggish going up hills but what can you expect from a 1.1 , i dont find the noise at high speeds too bad , ive driven worse , i do admit that the boot space could be a bit bigger , but that would mean sacrificing the leg room in the rear seats , and id rather have my passengers be comfortable , ive fitted three in the back with ease and space , The dash board is very basic but has lots of nooks and crannies to store all you need , its been a good runner , you make savings all round with this car , on the price of the car , the road tax , the insurance , the fuel , after this car my next one will deffinately be another Kia Picanto . ive had VW's, Fords , mercedes , but this car is the only car that i have had that i will get again !its the best little car you could buy .
