Default What car should I buy?

Okey,I went to the KIA dealership.I am really confused between KIA OPTIMA HYBRID LX AND KIA SX TURBO.Which one is better to buy in mileage,reliability and other things.What exactly hybrid cars do?I was going to buy KIA OPTIMA HYBRID LX in 26000 $ and I am leasing for 3 years which would cost me 300 $ with zero down payment but I need more time to decide.please tell me if kIA cars are better or should I look for other cars?

Kias have had decent overall reliability ratings and are one of the few makes that gave seven (7) year warranties on their (gasoline and diesel) cars in Europe. This alone means that they expect few warranty claims.

Hybrids are entirely different products where Toyota Prius has lead the pack with excellent results and keeps a firm hold on its segment of the market. Honda, with its Insight, is probably as good, trouble is it came later when the niche was saturated by Toyota and, to a lesser degree, by its upmarket branch Lexus.

Kia and the rest are relative newcomers and there is no long enough history or figures to speak of. This makes your purchase a matter of trust - not much to base your decision on, so take a long, serious look at the warranty clauses (especcially the small print!), maintenance arrangements (a 5-year deal would be an excellent option) and discounts before committing yourself.
