  1. Yow –the grand prize winner of advertising  as “buy this and you’ll be_______” where i saw NOTHING about this car that supports such a dream. Does it spray you with cologne? Does it run on compressed air? Does it have the best stereo in the world? Does it do ANYTHING on this level? Nope. Which makes it an embarrassment no vehicle can live up to.What KIAishness is in here? Is this a KIA way of being in the world? Yow. Hope you wiped up after this.
