Kia Cee'd or Skoda Octavia?

I want to buy a new car and am considering a used Kia Cee'd SW or Skoda Octavia (2009-2010), but I'm concerned about the price of parts. What do you suggest I buy?

Kia Cee'ds are made and have always been made in Slovakia, next door to the Czech Republic where Skodas are made. So it's unlikely to be any more of a problem with parts than with Skoda . And if buying a diesel, a 2009 cee'd 1.6CRDI is not only chain cam, it doesn't have a DPF. Octavia 1.6TDIs and 2.0TDIs do. Only 1.9TDIs don't.
