    Thinking of obtaining another vehicle in addition to the 2002 Sonata LX.
    Anyone have any thoughts about comparing Hyundai to Kia? Price,
    features and hardiness are all important. Thanks.

    ok.. especialy sorento... ..

    but if you drive hyundai... maybe its better to get new hyundai :)

    discount for regular service on cars cose we go to the same company :)

    Thanks for the reply. Sounds like Kia and Hyundai have similar models
    and about the same warrantee. Our Sonata has been reliable to the point
    of being boring when compared to our Ford.

    Is not a wagon. It's a hatch so it has a high liftover and a slanted
    back. I wish the Elantra wagon still existed as I have seen around in
    from previous years. Compare the current Elantra to the Kia Spectra
    if you need pictures.

    I know, I own one. A Midnight Blue Elantra GLS hatch

    Kia has a wagon or two in their stable. Nothing that I'd own, tho.

    Alle new engines and chassis are made by Hyundai, and Kia comes "after"
    making a n usually good work of refinement in style and interiors; but the
    mechanic side is from former Hyundai models.
