Re: I will never buy one!!!

It might just be that the most important safety equipment of all was not use,the gray matter between the drivers ears.It doesn't matter what you drive if your dumb enough ya can wreck it.
Common sence is labled totally wrong it should be called uncommon sence because it's not that common.

Ditto. I watched a lady hold up an entire lane yesterday in afternoon traffic at a green light because she wasn't paying attention to anything but her cell phone. Jackass[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

Re: I will never buy one!!!

If you look at the numbers a Camery is more American than a Seberling. Ya, NAFTA was a great idea, let's not say for who.

I have no idea what happened to that Kia, but as a member of the shiny side down club I'm glad I don't drive a Kia. Hey, maybe someone doesn't need a SFA, and would perfer something more comfortable, cheaper, and efficient to get around in. Fine, I would never pass judgement on that person like some of the name calling that has gone on around here, BUT (isn't there always a but?) that picture scares me. Anything can roll, anything. It's now it holds up in important. I don't trust something that folds up like the Kia in that pic.



Hit? Them tires rub. Rubbin's off roadin.

Re: I will never buy one!!!

I have a friend who now has 2 titanium disks in their back, false teeth, pins in both arms and both legs thanks to a blow out on a turn in a 8 month old Kia. The thing rolled twice and then flipped 3 times end over end off the side of the road and down a slight hill. The thing disentigrated, that picture is nothing compared to what happened to his there was no roof or doors left on the little peice of she-at. This was all caused by a blow-out at 50 miles per hour on a 4 lane road in a slight curve. I like little 4 wheel drives as much as the next guy and I have laid my sami on it's side before but I have never seen a car totally break apart like these thing do. I don't know why the structural integrity is so poor, but please noone buy one of these little death traps for an everyday driver or you may not be as lucky as my friend.
