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

It should be pretty solid. Kia has always had a good reputation for quality and reliability, even back before the days of the seven-year warranty. We have heard of old-shape Automobileens having engine failure problems, but it’s a difficult issue to diagnose ahead of the fact. Just make sure it has a full (or at least close to full) service history.
