Kia like a decade ago went to Toyota to learn about their TPS( Toyota production system). Which is what created Toyota solid quality control. I was devised by some big brain European and it's what propelled them.
Kia just basically copy pasted that since their earlier cars were trash and they realised they had a problem they needed to fix.
I don't agree with the link I posted though buy kiss reliability is top notch now. But not better than Toyota obviously.
Funny thing though is I don't understand why other car manufacturers haven't been able to emulate Toyota's success. Especially European companies

They look cool but you only get like 180hp unless you shell out for the top trim GT model.

K5 pricing is completely fucked in my area, new GT-Line AWD cars are listed for $35k+ and GT models run close to $40k if you can even find one. That's absurd when a used Stinger GT costs about the same with a better engine and AWD; there are a lot of other cars out there with more power at the $40k price point that isn't a FWD econobox.

i always think it says КИ

>>25917595
kia couldn't afford 1cm spacing on the lettering

I cant imagine that 'KN' didn't come up during meetings about the badging redesign, the only logical explanation is that these retards unironically could not afford to space the letters or some gook bean-counters came up with a fairytale about how much money would be saved during manufacturing.

I sat behind one at a light trying to figure out what russian brand was ки and how the fuck it got into the US. It took me a couple minutes to figure out it was a kia

Lexus didn't like it and Kia couldn't sell it as an option, though any Kia dealer will install it if you provide the badges. Or you can just install them yourself.

Are family crests a thing in China? Why don’t the CEOs of these Chinese car companies just use their family crest for a logo like Cadillac, Buick, and Mitsubishi. Some vague squiggly chrome thing doesn’t inspire confidence in the product.

Because the government doesn’t want people to be reminded of how great the Empire once was. This was the intention behind Mao’s “Cultural Revolution “.

Sabe thing happens on a smaller scale in the US where, for instance, you can’t make movies about certain past moments because there wasn’t a single blank person in that context, but good luck getting funded on a movie without at least one blank person.

That’s too bad because if they made a car that was %100 for/by Chinese consoomers tastes and requirements with a MODESTLY stylized dragon for ornamentation it would probably wind up being popular worldwide. Chinese auto industry needs its beetle/mini/2CV/civic/Lada to be taken seriously and spur interest in Chinese cars as a whole. These reliable, thrifty, servicable cars could trickle down to the peasant class and ruralites and bring the medieval country side into the modern “Chinese century”. It would go a long way to bolster Xi’s standing with the people.

Exactly like the quality of 'people' that drive them.

Are all chink manufacturers dogshit? In my cuntry I've been seeing a bunch of people buying geely coolrays and I thought it looked decent, until I remembered how Gayly has a history of ripping off Rolls Royce luxury cars. Are those things ripoffs too?
