    Depends on the model year but you usually can't go wrong with either a Corolla or Civic. The Kia is decent but I wouldn't put it quite on par with either the Honda or Toyota.

    1. Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic

    2. Kia Optima

    Hint: Good cars don't need long manufacturers warranties: They sell on their merit. Kia/Hyundai have come along way and it shows. Much more reliable than they used to be in the 1980's, but so are most automotive brands. There's a reason Toyota and Honda are default cars. They are great cars. I've seen crappy looking older Toyotas and Hondas that ran better than nicer looking cars from other brands.

    I would go with the civic but they are all good cars. The optima will be the most fun to drive.

    Kia is a good car anymore and has a much better warranty than the Honda or Toyota, but I would go with Toyota first, and a tie for second between the Honda and Kia depending on which styling you prefer.

    My mechanic says Kia is "junk", so go with the other two.

      Not "junk" but not as good as honda or toyoyta or mazda.

      If someone only has $2000-2500 to spend, a Kia might be a better bet than a totally worn out Toyota with 225k. You might get a kia with 80-90k.

    I still have a 1997 Toyota corolla and it is the most reliable car i ever had. I hope the new ones are that reliable too.

    Toyota’s more reliable, but the Corolla is the most bland and unattractive car in the world. I heard Kias reliability have improved a lot, their warranty’s are good, and they are much better looking with better interiors.

    kia is 3rd of those 3. Of course, if you are talking older used cars, they might be half the price.
