If you have ever owned a Kia Shuma we would love to hear about your experience of this car. Also let us know about any parts you replaced and how they performed when fitted to the vehicle. Write your review in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

Kia Shuma Overview

The Kia Shuma is classed as a small family car and was produced by the South Korean automobile manufacturing company Kia Motors. This vehicle was in production from 1997 to 2003 and is also know as the Kia Sephia, Spectra and Mentor in different markets across the world. These cars have good safety equipment and are rather spacious. They are cheap to buy but this shows in the interior design and the basic looking styling. The gear changing is not that great on the manual version and is not the best to drive. They are practical and the price makes them bearable. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Kia Shuma?
