Well that all fine buying a 10+ year old car. But then how it has been looked after makes a massive difference when buying an older cheap car. If I want a 3-5 year old car the data points are not so useful.
That would be more true if not for the fact that Warranty Direct takes average age of vehicle and mileage into account when calculating reliability. No way of calculating reliability is going to be perfect, but theirs is the best going right now.
Yes I was jesting. Really good cars if not a little boring. If it wasn't for the weak piston rings these would run forever.
Well apart from the Cee'd (still seems odd typing that!) all of what people class a "modern" Kia's will only just have started to come out of warranty.
Wasn't the almost bulletproof XP10 Yaris built in France for Europe? I'd still recommend a 1.0/1.3 of those for someone that just past their test and needs something cheap and reliable.
