Ya know what I wish you the best of luck getting everyone to swtich over. Just because you had bad luck with your kia doesnt mean everyone else will have bad luck with theirs. I havnt had any issues with mine. Out of all of the vehicle manufactures out there there is always going to be a lemon in every bunch.

Well said Spec SX, no one wants any body to have 'bad luck' with their cars, but to try to suggest that everybody gets rid of their cars and switch to something else is total fantasy.

The Kia Cee'd is by far the best car I have had, I have had Datsuns, Nissans, VW's, Fords, Vauxhalls, Morris (going back a bit) & Renaults.

Can I join Harrisking's world???

Don't wish anyone bad luck with their car, now with that being said I snuck over to a couple of U.S. car forums & guess what--there's trouble in river city there to. I've had my KIA for awhile now-no trouble-and so far one of the best cars for the money I've ever had. Guess I just don't expect enough. Anyway I'm more than satisfied, & my wife loves the car--gotta keep mama happy.

American cars (or Mexican/Canadian-made cars, since that is where alot of "American" cars are made now) have some of the worst quality issues out of any country's cars....

After owning a Ford Taurus that had over 3,000 dollars worth of repairs within a 1-year period (alternator went out, oil leaked, power-steering was kooky, headlight issues, gearbox issues, etc) even though the car had less than 30,000 miles on it, I will never own another American car again unless I get a steal on a new one.

And it isn't just me. Nearly everyone I know that has an American car has problems with theirs.

I will always buy Euro or Asian from now on. Better quality, better price, better value.

I too had a Ford Taurus, it was a 1996 and a POS, it use to eat alternators and one of the pulleys for the cerpentine belt kept coming off, it only had 82,000 miles on it. The interior was cheaply made and falling apart, the transmission was another downfall. I'd never go back to owning an American automobile. My next automobile was a 2002 Optima, I got over 100,000 out of it, before I traded it for my current 2004 Optima. I'm sticking with Hyundai/Kia products.

Wow... sounds just like my old Taurus! It had the alternator go out in it, and the cloth inside the roof area started dry-rotting and falling off even though it was kept in the dry all the time! My transmission also had big lurches in it (would nearly knock you senseless) every time it down-shifted.

I'm like you..... Kia/Hyundai FTW!!! (That's "For The Win" for those of you who aren't PC-talk savvy)

Oh yeah... and most Japanese cars are well made as well.... I would looooove to have a Subi. Easily the most reliable cars on the road. My sister had one with over 200,000 miles on it when she bought it! And she put another 60,000 on it before she sold it! And the only problem she ever had with it was that she wore the brake pads out twice in its lifetime and had to get a new battery because the battery in it was over 12 years old and was just starting to crap out! We still see the people who bought it driving around town in it.... that car has to have over 300,000 miles on it by now!!!!!!!

My grandmother has a Subi, my friend's mom has a Subi, and I know a few other people with Subi's. Everyone I know has no complaints with theirs and loves them to pieces...

Oh... how I would love to have one of the new Legacy GT's.....

OK... enough ranting... so yeah.... Jap/Korean cars FTW!!!!!11!!1one!1!

Tum...love subi's. I had an 85 wagon traded at 175k, an 86 XT parted out at 150k, and an 85 XT Turbo that I got with 225K (for free!) and sadly sent to the graveyard at 295k.

The engines run FOREVER, but the bodies suck.

The bodies don't suck at all..... How would your body hold up if it had run over 100,000 miles?!?
