Which would you advise between buying a 330i / 530i BMW or a Kia Cadenza?

Asked by three4rd Aug 08, 2019 at 08:58 AM about the Kia Cadenza

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm looking to replace my 95 Buick Riviera and have come across both BMW 3
and 5 series sedans and the Kia Cadenza as being rated good cars; however,
I'm also seeing here that BMW can take a good deal of maintenance and
repairs. I'm not looking for that quite honestly since my Buick took alot over
the course of 24 years. Any advice on either?

Stay away from anything European, maintenance costs alone will eat you alive, an parts costs are through the roof. now as far as Asian imports, steer clear of Mitsubishi, Kia and of course any that are no longer made like Daewoo, Honda is still holding their own followed buy Toyota. HTH

So what would be your top suggestions in the luxury class that is not European or Asian import?


Many Japanese cars are built in the US. https://www.businessinsider.com/all-the-japanese- cars-made-in-the-usa-2017-11


I did not state stay away from all Asian imports, Honda's Accord is nice, all of those under the Acura and Lexus. I am particularly fond of Lexus having owned them in the past.

I don't know. Right now, at least on the screen, I do like the Kia.
