Has Kia really come far in reliability over the years? *Telluride related*
I really, really want to get a 2020 Kia Telluride for the wife but I can't get past the Kia brand and my idea that it's a shitty brand. I've read some things online that claim Kia is not what it used to be and that it's quite reliable now but I just don't know what to believe. For all I know, Kia could've paid the author to write the article I read.

I'm sure there are many on here who know more about cars than I do so please tell me. Is Kia a reliable vehicle on par with Toyota and Honda or would you rather stay away?

TIA

I think their quality is actually very good. The Telluride looks pretty good too.

Quality is more important than reliability. Reliably poor performing cars are just that, reliably poor.

I've heard nothing but GREAT things. Plus, that Telluride looks fricking sexy. If only they would make the KIA logo less kia-e and not as distinguishable lol

I've read that it really depends on the model.

They still make shitty small sedans/coupes but the larger products (other than minivan) seem to be on par with midmarket competitors

My wife is going to need a new vehicle next year and I'm really leaning towards the Telluride as of now.


Tried going look at one last weekend and the dealer said they didn't have any because they were selling as soon as they got them.

If they changed the logo, you'd never know it wasn't a high arse end SUV.

You also are convinced I'm some Storm2k alter or something so I'm not sure if I want to believe you

I personally wouldn't buy a Kia because it's a Kia

100% agree. If they did that, the sales would fricking skyrocket.

They have a 10 year 100k mile warranty. I would assume you are safe with their vehicles.

There was one behind me the other day and I thought it was a range rover then it passed me and it was a fricking kia. Good looking car besides the kia logo.

How far did they have to go?

Kia has been a solid company for a while now.

I've read that they're having issues keeping stock.

This has always been my thinking, too. The Telluride makes me want to change my opinion but the last thing I want to do is give up $35,000 only to have to do it again 5-7 years later.

Get past the Kia brand stigma...it is not the Kia of 15 yrs ago. Them and Hyundai have earned their seat at the table with the rest of the typical mid level car makers
