Thoughts on the 2012 Kia Ceed diesel?

2012 Kia Ceed diesel: is this a reliable car? I've found a private seller with one for €6,000 - is this good value?

Hi Patricia,

A price of €6,000 for a 2010 Ceed from a private seller isn’t bad, but it’s worth pointing out that there are dealers offering similar models for similar money, so that’s worth bearing in mind. Ceeds are very reliable, and a 2012 car should, if it’s been serviced at a Kia dealer the entire time, still have two years of its original manufacturer's warranty to run. Keep an eye out for creaking and squeaking interior panels and issues with the stereo system, but other than that they’re pretty robust.
