Default Help me choose a car

I'm thinking about buying a new KIA since I've been over here.

I'm looking heavily at the K5 (Optima) and the K7 (Cadenza-which isn't out in the States yet).

An Optima fully loaded is only $30k, where as the Cadenza is around $40k.

Am I going crazy or what? I mean I've always owned GM of some sort, and never planned to buy anything but a domestic. What would you guys do?

All I can say it that late model Kia'* and Hyundais don't break.

My daughter bought a Brand new Santa Fe 5 years ago and it now has 65000 miles. I have changed the oil and done brakes and tires. That'* it!! Plus she isn't really easy on a car.

I'd feel like I'm going against my own grain if I bought one though. I'm the kind of person that will pay more just to have American...but when you think about KIAs are built in America while most "domestics" are not.

i know a few people who have bought new kias, no complaints anywhere. nice options and warranty for prices gm cant touch. if gm cant offer a good product at a reasonable price thats there problem.

can you bring it back for reasonable money, or i think i heard somewhere the military will for free if you buy it while deployed?

Why would I buy it here when I can buy it in the States? Importing is such a hassle.

I would buy the Genesis, if it was worth it buy the Korean one and import it. It'* so different than the American version though so no way.

Another thing I would have to do is get rid of my car. don't know if I wanna do that or not.

Haha, yeah. The American Genesis doesn't compare to the Korean version. At all.

2011 Kia Optima SX? I'd get it in black or blue, maybe even silver.


2011 Ford Fusion Sport? Also in black or blue.


2011 Chevy Malibu LTZ? Would be in black or silver.
