Here are 3 stories about friends who own KIA cars:

1. KIA Spectra is nice car but give alots of QA issues on small small things, Cobra alarm, sport rims etc...

2. KIA Citra (previously called Caren) is a good buy, an old friend own one, the only problem is Caren smaller look compared with Citra, not sure how true is it.

3. NEVER, or try to avoid to buy KIA Ria... this is another version of Proton car.. cheap but problematics.


Thank You Rolling Eyes

My office colleagues has many types of cars, from BMW to Kancil, mostly brand new. Razz Very Happy So, wat car u want to know more? Ekekeke. Cool

I guess many realise that the car is not worth to get. Thats why the demand is not there and the price will still remain. Not like our car which demand is there and its much worth every cents spend on.

There's a new model of Rio just launch last week. The KIA claimed that the model name is JB Rio which is CBU. Selling price is exactly 75k OTR including the road tax and insurans. 1.4c.c engine, ABS with EBD etc. The quality is good. Only one thing i notice at the engine area is most components are stamp with Hyundai and KIA logo. I heard that Hyundai has been taken over in Korea to manufacture lower end vehicle. But in Malaysia has been seperate with Hyundai because NAZA has taken over the dealership.

The new car webpage can be seen at http://www.kia-rio.com/ (but it take times to load. Rolling Eyes

My Korean ex-colleague told me that Hyundai bought over Kia because Kia do not have the market. So KIA is more for cheaper market compared to Hyundai.

Yaloh, but how come KIA's car is more than Hyundai's car on Malaysia road. Rolling Eyes Maybe its because Naza is the authorised dealer of KIA. Rolling Eyes But KIA sales price is not too much different with Hyundai.

yup, you're right. Its about the AP issue. But because its the tax which is high thats why its almost the same price as Hyundai.
