I was going to say the same thing regarding Kia and Hyundai. Takes a lot of risk away from long term ownership. Even if just the powertrain.
I would also think, due to lack of interest in sedans, they should truly make it an enthusiasts car. Put a manual in the 4cyl. While we all dream of the quadrafolio, the base model is priced right, and given the heritage of Alpha, a manual sports sedan could go a lot farther than just another "nice" sedan.
With that said, I was close to leasing one, but the back seat was still tight with a car seat for the kiddo.
I would not buy a used one without an amazing warranty. Too many unknowns, regardless of how sweet a deal it might be.
