Owners of the all-new Kia Magentis sedan and Carnival minivan have expressed extreme satisfaction with their new cars. Both products earned top honors in their respective categories in Strategic Vision's 2006 Total Value Index. Strategic Vision surveyed more than 64,000 new car buyers who purchased their vehicle between October 2005 and March 2006, asking an array of questions about their first 90 days of ownership. Components of Total Value include reliability, warranty, anticipated resale value and durability.
"The Total Value Awards are a significant achievement because they are a direct reflection of the positive experience Kia owners are having with their new vehicles,” said Len Hunt, executive vice president and COO, Kia Motors America. "The all-new Magentis and Carnival offer high levels of comfort, convenience and safety at a tremendous value, and is further proof of the excitement our next generation products are delivering to the brand,” Len Hun added.
