Mainertodd clone cars for sure, but I like the looks of the Rio 5 door over the new Accent.

Kia's have gone a long way, and when reviews say millions of owners are pretty happy with reliable new Kia's, it says something. Mitsubishi cars, my Mirage and many others, very reliable.
Here is the kicker though Dirk: lacklustre service by Mitsubishi's mediocre dealer and parts networks... they aren't up to par. Like to the standards of what Kia is today in 2019. In 1999 Kia was the small fish now look.
Yes Dirk you do see more older Mitsubishi's on the road, than old Kia's. But maybe new Kia's are really good too and will last the test of time.
