Re: I Don't Wanna Buy a New Car
may be bit different in the USA, Can only speak for UK vehicles
Have a look at ex demo models, I got Sue a fantastic Honda civic estate 1.6 diesel. With only 6,000 miles on the clock. And no road tax to pay either from a main dealer. This was a fraction of the price of a new car,even had satnav. Sue can get between 60 and 70 MPG around the houses
got rid of this Kia ceed estate( Korea built)
the build quality was rubbish, even the so called alloy wheels started to rust around the hub not the rim.Radio that might or might not work and Kia dealers refused to replace it even under warranty, saying it was electrical which the warranty didn't cover, even though it was new at the time. Only got it as it was all we could afford at the time
You can instantly tell the difference between the Honda and the Kia as soon as you shut the door,tinny sound against a firm clunk on the Honda.
Have to say after having the Kia getting into the Honda there was no comparison. I just could not believe how much better the Honda was.
I have always been a fan of Japanese cars-Toyota -Isuzu -Honda- Nissan and had a good few of them. Not once has any let me down
Had a Kia Sorento new and the wiring packed up causind seveal problems Went to 2 kia main dealers and they also refused to replace the wiring faults ,even under waranty
Can only come to the conclusion Kea only interested in selling cars,after that service/repairs you are on your own. The 7 year thing advertised is a "come on" they don't back it up
That Honda is Sue car ,I have the Nissen Xtrail Tekna, ordered it with 7 seats+ towbar ( had trailer at the time)
