Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Kia Magentis saloon?

The Magentis is a safe pair of hands. We've heard no reports of common weak spots in the car, so its reputation as a soundly built, mechanically robust piece of kit seems justified.

However, it's important to choose one that comes with a full service history. Tough though it is, the Magentis isn't unbreakable, and it does require servicing every 10,000 miles or once a year.
