Fuel-injection best

Asked by Bryan Towner - Shepparton

I'M CONSIDERING buying either a Hyundai Accent or a Kia Rio. Every car I have had to date has had a carburettor, but obviously whatever I buy next will be fuel-injected. Is there anything I should be nervous about with fuel injection?

FIRST to your last question. You will wonder why you haven't had fuel-injection before, it is so much better in all respects than a carburettor that you will love it. Your car will start without drama at all temperatures, will drive smoothly at all times, won't suffer from fuel vapourisation, will deliver better fuel economy and have more power. As for the Accent and Rio, I can't give you a definitive answer other than the Accent has a good reputation within the trade. The Rio isn't quite as well regarded. The feeling is that Kia is about where Hyundai was five years ago in build quality and reliability. I would favour the Hyundai, but don't have any major Kia objection.
