Question about Kia Rondo

1 Answer

Can Kia Rondo be used as a delivery vehicle?

I deliver, install and maintain aquariums. I also make pine stands and canopies for them. I have a friend who has been making iron stands for me. The problem is delivery. A have a Kia Spectra5 station wagon. The Spectra is the same as the Hyundai Elantra, on the large end of compact car or the very small end of mid-sized car. Larger tanks are 5 or 6' long. Not that I see them often, but there are some 7' long tanks out there. Getting a 5' tank is a hassle in my car. I like to be out for the day and do 3-4 deliveries. Hard to do this unless they are 3' tanks, like a 38 or 40. More common, like 4' tanks like 55's or the very popular 72 bowfront barely fit two. I'm thinking Rondo, because it gets nearly as good mileage as my Spectra5. It's thousands less than Mazda 5. It's cheaper than a Chevy HHR or PT Cruiser, which are smaller. It is an oddball model. How has your experiences with it been? Is it worth spending an extra $2,500 on a Mazda 5? Thanks.

I think you'd be better off buying a used minivan or delivery truck then a new car. You'll have alot more room for your tools and supplies and it will cost you less up front. You can get a nice 2001 Nissan Quest for under $7000 or an American utility van in good condition for around the same or less money.

2007 kia rondo seems to use alot of gas


I have the same issue of low gas mileage. My 2008 Kia Rondo with V6 (2.7Lt) gets 20-21 mpg in average. Even for highway mileage, it is around 21-22mpg. Very poor gas mileage. Disappointed. I hope it would improve in the future.
