I don't get why these aren't fricking everywhere

Here in Australia, people drive everything but the classic formula: light, simple hatch with an NA engine and 5 speed manual. They're currently 21k driveaway which is about 13.5k USD.

The default car for couples or retirees is at least a rav4, if not a ranger or prado. These are obese shoppers that drive to the shops or their nan's house and that's all.

    Ya I'd rock that thing. I had a gas hog through out college and was just a scared b***h to try anything else. I now rock a Civic, some days wish I had a Honda Fit or older Matrix. And plan on getting a truck after getting a house.

    I'm a marketing manager who lives in the suburbs and commutes to work on a highway. I live alone, so of course I need a car that can seat twelve and is equipped to drive across arctic tundra. It just makes me feel better.

    It's Korean. The engine will fail within 10k miles. Nobody with half a brain would buy one of these.
    Just buy a normal Japanese designed/built car like a normal person. Stop being moronic.

      It’s interesting seeing how different countries have perceptions on brands. Hyundai and Kia have good reputations for reliability in Australia. Probably on par with or exceeding Toyota since they offer longer warranties and longer capped price servicing. I bought a Mitsubishi and told my American friends and they were absolutely horrified, saying it would break down, be unreliable, saying no one should buy one etc. However Mitsubishi also has a good reputation here. Yeah they’re cheaper, but there’s nothing bad mechanically about them. They are just outdated and not as premium (but they are much cheaper to make up for it).

          Mitsubishi offers a 10 year full comprehensive warranty and 10 year capped price servicing, Hyundai/Kia will do 7 with unlimited km. Toyota used to only offer 3 but now do 5. That’s a crazy difference in terms of confidence in their product. Even the cheap Chinese shitboxes from MG, SAIC, etc offer 7.

      My place of work has 3 Kia's since 2010 when they did the whole line up refresh and they have been nightmares. However the engines and transmissions have given zero issues. It's just everything around it.

    Probably because they're slow, uncomfortable, cheaply made and too small. Even in Mexico where the average median income is only a $15,000 most people just go for one size larger. The new K4 is probably going to sell very fricking well here.

        A lot of people love to criticize men (with pointed vitriol) for driving big trucks that they probably don't need, but little has been said about the very female landboat SUV plague in such a manner.

    Actually have one these (2019 model).
    Problems I have had in order
    1. The brake pedal never came out all the way and it would make the ECU freakout and cut acceleration. After finding out this problem, everytime after braking I had to put my foot behind the pedal to bring it back up fully. It was fixed but they had trouble order the small spring to fix it.

    2. there is this plastic part that holds the fuel lines, handbrake cable and brake lines in place and everytime it rains heavy it would fall off and my lines would be hanging about 3 inches from the road. After the third time it fell off I went frick it and used zip ties and it holds it better than the OEM part.

    Would a small van make for a good daily driver in Sydney? I've never driven a van before but you get a lot of space for shopping and if someone smashes a trolley into it would you even notice? Where's the downside?

    Does Kia actually stand by the 7 year unlimited warranty or is that just bullshit? If these Picantos can last at least 100,000km without any issues then it would be worth it to me.

      The Rav4 is 44,000 dollarydos for the base model. Cars like the Picanto cost half of that. You're a fool easily parted with his money.

    Looks like its hitting the same niche that Ford Fiesta used to in the US. Bought a brand new base model manual fiesta in 2017 for 11k out the door in New Hampshire. Had zero issues with it, zero recalls, eventually traded up to a minivan because of kids, but I agree entirely with you OP. You'd probably be ahead financially having two cars, the one that pleases your particular type of autism(big truck, muscle car, luxury flex SUV) and one for racking up miles for daily work and groceries.

    Because most Australians aren't poor, and for 20k you can get a pretty decent used car that will last longer than a Piccanto. Having said that, the Sport looks good, but is still slow as frick.
