    One of the Korean makers has a 10yr 100,000 mile warranty, I forget which one.

    Anyways, are the Korean cars any good?

    I thought it was Kia, but I could be wrong.

    We bought a Chevrolet Aveo a few months ago as an el-cheapo good-gas-mileage throwdown car. It's made by Daewoo. Once I started ripping into it to put in a good stereo I was amazed by how good the fit & finish was. Other friends have Kias and they have all been very reliable.

    Kia may have it, I know that Hyundai does.

    check out for up to date car info.

    The Koreans may well have got their act together finally with the quality of their cars. I'm still going to wait around a little while to see how long they're lasting. Until then, give me a tried and true Honda. (Toyo and Nissan last too)

    Clem, what kind of Honda was it?

    the honda at work is a 4 cyl CRV w/ a/c, pw, locks, cd, base wheels. so i dont know what trim level, but its kind of amazing at what a POS the thing is. before it was out of warranty it was in the shop 7 times for weeks on end for major problems.
