Description: 2000 Kia Sephia LS 1.8I4 16V DOHC 5 Speed
11XXXX Miles

I bought the car for $500. The Aim for this is 50 MPG. and as cheap as possible.

1,793 cc 1.8 liters in-line 4 engine with 81 mm bore, 87 mm stroke, 9.5 compression ratio, double overhead cam and four valves per cylinder
125 HP SAE @ 6,000 rpm

External dimensions:
overall length (inches): 174.4
overall width (inches): 66.9
overall height (inches): 55.5
wheelbase (inches): 100.8
front track (inches): 57.7
rear track (inches): 57.3
and curb to curb turning circle (feet): 32.2

This car is an "LS" has all the fancy options KIA offered in 2000 such as Air conditioning and power steering / windows / locks. Only the power windows still work and the passenger side is very slow.
