Model Highlights

Only one engine is available in the Rondo for 2010-- a 175-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder. The only transmission is a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The Rondo shares some components with the mid-size Optima sedan, so it's more of a tall wagon than an SUV. That means the Rondo handles with no tipsy feeling; a 4-wheel independent suspension includes anti-roll bars front and back to keep body lean under control. The Rondo's efficient powertrain manages an EPA rating of 20 mpg city, 27 highway.

Kia has clearly designed the Rondo around creating the most interior space possible; its interior is surprisingly huge given its compact exterior. The second-row seats have plenty of headroom and legroom for full-size adults, and the third-row seat, now standard for 2011, can comfortably seat smaller occupants, expanding the Rondo's seating capacity to seven. The seats all fold to expand cargo space when needed, and the second row slides fore and aft to adjust either the legroom or the amount of cargo space in back. The interior has cup holders for each row, plus a number of storage cubbies.

A total of six airbags, including seat-mounted side bags and full-length side-curtain bags, help protect occupants of the Rondo; active head restraints help reduce the chance of whiplash injury in a crash, while electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes might help prevent one.


Model News

The Rondo lineup got simplified for 2010. It's available only in the LX trim and with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. The previously third-row seat is now standard equipment.


Value Writeup

The Rondo is shorter than most mid-size cars yet has an incredible amount of interior space; it's an ideal alternative for those who want something similar to, but smaller than, a minivan. Rondo also offers more standard safety features--including electronic stability controls--than some vehicles in its class. And Kia's warranty adds a lot of value; it covers powertrain components for up to ten years or 100,000 miles.

Summary
Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Rondo and Sportage, model year 2007-2011 Sorento, model year 2007 Sedona, model year 2010-2011 Soul, and model year 2011 Optima vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and causing the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of PARK without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Kia will send an interim notification to owners in May 2013. When parts are available, owners will receive a second notification and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's recall campaign number is SC098.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
