But I will at least give them that they are not Hyundai style copying yet. At least they are chopping 2 cars together, not just taking some car and making a direct replica.
But I also feel the same way on materials. I have never owned a Kia but I have been given one as a rental. It to me is lower in quality than even a Ford/Chevy. The last Ford rental I was in, it was a brand new small-SUV. I dont know the name... But you pressed on the dash and the whole thing bowed in. Like the whole thing was made of jello. Then the steering wheel was like an old I Love Lucy episode. Turn the steering wheel back and forth, and you keep moving in a straight line. The Kia had the same dash problems, and squeaking ontop of that. Evertime you get in, "squeeeeeeeak". Put your hand on the armrest, and it wails somemore. Cant say I have ever had any of those problems in the Hondas, Toyotas, or Lexuses/Lexi (like octopus/octopi maybe???) that we own.
