Nice they make a good car. there owned by Hyundai. I'm going to get a good GMC Car through a friend of mine who has his dealer license. I'd buy a Dodge but Gm's will last longer and have better resale value. I maybe getting a new career in sales at a BRP dealer. so have to switch to ski doo quads and sleds. Have to believe in the product I'm selling. LOL

We bought a KIA Sprectra back in 2003, 10 year - 100,000 mile warranty that we never had to use! Only thing I replaced was a power window switch. 145,000 miles on it and still running perfect! Its almost as much fun as the Prowler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah the 2003 was our first experience with a KIA, the wife had a dodge that she was driving to work and it was costing about 100 a month to keep it dependable, we bought the KIA new for less than 10 grand, and I figured it to be a throw away car! Well 10 years later, and it is still going strong. We are looking at cars now, but will keep the Kia for daily transport! 36-38 MPG, and a ten gallon tank at all bad!!!!!!!!!!Good Luck on the car!

I have a 2011 Sonata Turbo and it's been very reliable and the Hyundai customer service is top notch. With a 10 year 100,000 mile warranty it's hard to beat. I paid 4k less then the nearest competitor and the car looks better and performs better. It's a 2.0 liter turbo motor making 274 hp and yet I still get 35 miles per gallon. I bought as my airport car since my truck kept getting broken into. I am very happy with the Hyundai products. My friend bought the Kia Optima which is the same car and he loves it. Coming from a guy that drove BMW's and Mercedes that's hard to believe but it's true. Enjoy your new ride.

I have a 2011 Sonata as well minus the insurance turbo. Good car, full size inside, plenty of storage in trunk.:) and it looks similar to the C series Mercedes 'cept a lot more affordable. Profile looks better than C series.

my zx3 focus was a good car, in the last 40,000 miles its cost me 2200 dollars worth of parts to keep it in top shape,and now its got a bearing going bad in the 5 speed.its time to send it down the road,if not from that I would keep it.we had our minds set on a new dodge dart it was in the same price range as the kia I liked.so we drove the dart, it had a 1.4 turbo,AND not to cut anybodys ride down,I think my prowler would out run it in a 1/8 mile race.commercials can really fool you.:)
