While Kia was founded in 1944, the Korean automakers didn't start actually manufacturing cars until 1974. Throughout the next several decades, Kia formed partnerships with several other auto manufacturers, and in 1987, Ford brought the first Kia to the United States under the name of the Ford Festiva. Throughout the 1990s, Kia's US presence grew as its affordable vehicles gained a reputation for value.

Today, Kia has a partnership with fellow Korean automaker Hyundai that has helped it improve vehicle quality. Customer confidence has grown as Kia cars and SUVs have shown noticeable improvements in quality and featured some of the industry's best warranties.
