It would be nice to try it sometime.

All the good pieces & specs. are there, decent looking as well. Most reviews I've seen rate it as "real close" to making it overall, with downchecks still on driving/handling "feel".

There could still be some bias there, so I'd like a drive B4 deciding for myself. Sounds like a fun ride & might be good enough to start changing some opinions.

Cheers!

Man....



This is another one of those "As if we didn't know" threads that seems to amuse people who think that they have some sort of secret knowledge key that everyone else doesn't. It's also full of butt-rubbing people who agree with this that or the other- all we need now is to take it to Facebook so everyone can "like" and "dislike". It's like we're all a bunch of Snowdens exposing the obvious that everyone else is ignoring because.... well, it's obvious.

Not every car is assembled in the native country because it's a good business model to build the cars you sell in the countries you sell them in.
Kias and Hyundais copy Ford design as much as any other manufacturer copies a successful vehicle in any time period. Original thinking doesn't sell.
If you want a Kia, go get one.
If you want a Ford, go get one.
If you want Duesenburg, good luck.

Once you've said your peace, get on with it, nobody cares except to ape you into another internet emo-kid. It's obvious I expect that exact reaction- surely nobody on here would go back to the original topic!

This is what I imagine you as.

All in good fun, of course.
