Yes, they are REALLY that bad. It is the bottom of the barrel if you are shopping in the US. I would rather have a 1996 Honda Civic vs a 2004 Kia.

Yes, the Kia brand simply hasn't been around long enough, it hasn't proven itself in the long run yet. It takes time to establish the resale value of vehicles. Hyundai went through the same phase when they first came out. They were cheap new, so they were cheap used. They did not have great quality when they first came out but now it is a fairly reliable car. But now they are a little more expensive new and a little more expensive used. some model are even in extremely high demand in the used vehicle market which is pushing the prices above average. With kia the verdict simply isn't in yet, until that time they will continue to be inexpensive. never lose of the fact that u get what u pay for.

Kia vehicle, when they first hit the United states, had a lot of mechanical issues.



They are an inexpensive vehicle that gets good gas mileage,

and if you get one that is newer than a 2002, they run well, too.

Kia has benn around for a long time, they have only been in N. America for about 16 years.

They are cheap crap, I used to work for a Kia dealer the cars are plagued with engine, transmission, air conditioning and suspension breakdowns. And the people that work on them will tell you the same thing. That's why ford sold them. Hyundai owns them now and they are trying to improve quality. But they won't do much cause they want their product Hyundai's to be superior.



I used to work for a Suzuki/Subaru dealer and I loved to drive, I worked in service and sales at different car dealerships and have had driving and crash courses(we would crash cars on purpose to see how safe they were) on many different makes. Subaru's are probably the safest cars out there. I was at work one day and went to run an errand for the service department. I wanted to take the Subaru service car. I got stuck taking the Suzuki. I got into a small car accident but the way the car reacted to the accident, well I am now unemployable because of the pain I am in. I have been disabled by this small accident. Had I been driving a Subaru I would still be working today. Why? Subaru has passive as well as active safety features, built better to absorb impacts and better handling. Thanks to the Suzuki I am in constant pain. If I was driving a Kia I would of died.

In answer to your question, yes they are okay cars they look good and if mmaintained properly they can last, but all cars can if they are m,aintained. Are they safe NO!

Buy a Subaru, Honda or Toyota
