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.

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.
