Our 2016 Kia Sedona Review

I have never seen myself as the mini van type. To be honest, I really enjoy driving smaller, zippy cars. It's what I am use to. Though to be fair - there are mini vans, and then there are cool vans with a lot of storage and a long list of really nice features. With that being said, I recently had the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Kia Sedona SXL for an entire week. I'm not saying that I am … [Read more...]

Kia Knows Power, my 2015 Kia Sorento LX V6 review

I recently spent a week with this beauty! The 2015 Kia Sorento LX V6. If you follow me on social media, you already know I have mad crazy love for Kia, but this one, wow, she stands out! Not only is this SUV a beauty to look at, offers a ton of convenient options, and amazing comfort inside - but she has the goods under the hood!

2014 Kia Soul Review

Just before my recent trip to L.A., I was already rocking the Hollywood lifestyle, by test driving the new, transformed 2014 Kia Soul! Yeah - this one! The new Kia Soul features a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine, clean hip body lines, shorter height, and tight steering. The model I reviewed was totally tricked out inside, bringing the fun to an all new grown-up level. The Kia Soul is … [Read more...]

Kia Knows Quality, My Kia Optima EX Review

I recently had the chance to review the 2013 Kia Optima EX. The exterior color (Dark Cherry) and design of this car is absolutely beautiful! Inside, the leather interior and dash board are equally impressive. She's a beauty! Maybe I've been spoiled a little by my previous reviews but my first thoughts once inside was disappointment over the lack of navigation system, back-up camera, or … [Read more...]

2013 Kia Forte 5-Door Review

I recently had the opportunity to drive the 2013 Kia Forte 5-Door for a week. This car is a pretty sweet ride! Stunning, inside and out! The leather seats with cloth trim add some nice personality to the interior. The leather-wrapped steering wheel and metal-finish interior accents give the Kia Forte a really sporty edge without ruling it out as a family car. I know it made this mom feel … [Read more...]

The New Kia Rio Makes Driving Fun

We recently spent a fun girls weekend in Sandusky, Ohio, just a couple of hours away from home. After two full days of fun mother/ daughter activities, that "just a couple of hours" driving home, can feel like a lifetime. Trust me, I've made that drive several times over the years, and have complained pretty much the entire way. Well, not this time! Not while driving the fun Kia Rio! When I … [Read more...]

The 2013 Kia Sorento Review

We recently spent a fun family weekend at an in-door water park, a few hours away from home. We had such a good time. Even though the weekend was spent focusing on entertaining the girls, the time spent on the road driving a 2013 Kia Sorento was no heart-ship for us as parents. The 2013 Sorento offers plenty of room, and is packed with modern technology, and features that make everyday driving … [Read more...]
