      Yes my Kia Soul + also probably one of the very best I've ever owned and had about 40 cars in my life and am almost 80 now. they can say what they want but I really like mine and don't care what anyone says.

      Im getting my first car and looking for reliability mostly.What would you recommend a 2004 kia optima or 2002 honda civic?

      @CL no Hyundai and Kia's are cheap to get replacement parts for.

      The only exception to this rule is the modified hybrid automatic transmission if it ever were to fail.

      Seen only one of those die under warranty and warranty cost was $12000. But remember no one buys a Hyundai for the hybrid.

      Cause it's honestly stupid to spend $10000 more on a car that gets maybe 7 mpg difference in fuel economy. It would take the average driver 15 years to reach that benifit

      So right on with warranties Scotty! I ended getting a whole new emissions system replaced on 2004 Hyundai Elantra in 2011, after automotive repair bereau found out Hyundai didn't do anything about check engine light problems my car had!

    What's funny is that out of 1 Honda CRV and 3 Kias that I've owned over the years, it was the Honda CRV that left me stranded once, and it was only a year old. Battery died after 1 year in a snowstorm. I came out to the car after work and it was too weak to crank. Needed a jump from a coworker. Honda released a fix/TSB for it months later - some kind of bug in the charging system. One of my Kias was a 2004 Kia Spectra. Drove it for over a decade and it always got me to point B. Now my mom drives it.

      Between the Korean cars and Japanese cars, I opt for the Japanese cars.
      l don't want PAKURI cars.
      PAKURI in Japanese means cheesy copy.
      All Korean industrial products are copy from Japanese industrial products.

        I hate how often you show the Kia Pride/Ford Festiva when talking about old kias. My 1988 Festiva is still going just fine. Fact is, the car was designed by Mazda (the Mazda 121, Kia Pride, and Ford Festiva are all the same car) So Im with you, I wouldnt buy most Kias myself, but the 121/Pride/Festiva were (and in some cases 30 years later) are good cars.

                      We had a 2016 Kia Sedona. It was a disaster. Worst car we ever owned. Scotty is right, the dealer was lousy at fixing it. We dumped it after a short period. The quality was so bad I did not feel safe having my family in it. Always wondering what would fail next. I would take a Honda 100x over a Kia and I am not a Honda fan.

                            My 06 Kia Optima has almost 160k miles on it. But, that's just because I'm on the 2nd engine. First one blew out at 87,000 of the 100,000 warranty.

                              Definately Honda if you are planning on having the car past the warranty period. Kia / Hyundai won't even make it past 3 years without engine issues due to their engine manufacturing practices, speaking from personal experience and that of friends.

                                Wtf, Kia is worse than dodge.

                                  I worked for Honda and Hyundai dealer until very recently, Honda had a lot less warranty issues indeed but Hyundai have some pretty good cars these days . They make very good cars and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Hyundai. Honda is my favourite manufacturer but Hyundai would definitely be a close second.

                                    I bought a 2020 Kia Soul with the new IVT transmission. When I tried the Honda HRV I noticed that the tiny cvt transmission at high speeds listens like it going to blow up and the 1.8 engine feels really weak. California is plenty of Kia Souls. Kia forever.
                                    A 2014 HYUNDAI ELANTRA MADE 1 MILLION MILES WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS.

                                        I've owned both brands (a Civic Si, an Accord (6MT), an Integra GSR, a Sonata, an Elantra, a Sedona, and a Odyssey). The only problems I ever had with any of the cars was with the gears starting to grind (syncros) on the Si and the GSR, and with the Si/GSR engines burning some oil at VTEC.
                                        I'd factor in owner "abuse" or "lack of maintenance" as a major factor in how long any car lasts.

                                                        Honda cannot be compared wth kia. Kia is still at a learning stage. Jst making cute models dsnt mean they r reliable

                                                          Scotty - I would think that the difference in warranties [length] is also important. Thank you.

I can say both are good cars the Kia is great commuter car and gets 40+ on the hwy. The Honda is better road trip car and AWD is awesome in the slick stuff.. if you are worried about resale buy a Honda if you just want a good driver nothing wrong with new Kia..

                                                                            BTW also own another Honda , 1989 wagon and it's been an awesome vehicle.

When I bought the car a year ago it had 77,000 miles on it today I am a little over 105,000 miles with no issues at all so far. I get 38 miles per gallon highway and about 29 gallons mix daily driving. At times the car does feel sluggish when pressing on the gas from a red light so I put cataclean in the gas tank once a month. I also put Lucas complete engine treatment in my engine oil each time I get my oil change with full synthetic oil.
