2006 Kia Cerato from Singapore
A reliable car that I would like to keep
So far everything is OK except the radiator had a crack on the plastic part of the housing - yes, the plastic part of the housing. Never ever noticed it, and needed a complete radiator replacement after 5 years.
Apart from that, everything is fine and it works like a horse, but probably I did not overload it too often. Here the life span is officially 10 years for cars, but I intend to keep it if it is still running OK by the end. Nowadays, it's hard to get a good manual gear workhorse here.
It's not a sparkling star, but a good workhorse - same comments from some of my friends.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
