Kia has been around since just after the Korean War, just not selling into the USA. today KIA and Hyundia are merged with an excellent design team making real good autos and trucks (yes truck, just not very many imported into USA).Especially the Sedona and Kia sportage for 2007 have excellent track record for good autos.
