Planning on buying a Honda Civic Hybrid.

Hi!

I'm planning to buy a Honda Civic Hybrid (2007-2008) 1.3-litre CVT from the UK with average mileage and full service history. Are there any problems with this particular model and what should I look for?

Thank you

Is the 2004 Kia Carens a reliable MPV?

Hi there,

I'm planning to buy a car for our aupair. I saw a cheap Kia Carens (2004) I could buy from a dealer for €2,350. I'm wondering how economical and reliable this car is. I'm not sure Kia would have been as reliable then as it is now.
