My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA SALES APRIL - KIA - The Korean brand has taken a massive drop in sales for the month.
Kia Motors America today announced April sales of 53,358 units, led by the Forte nameplate with 10,496 units sold, the highest monthly sales total in company history for the family of compact cars, going through each model, starting with the Rio which took a huge nose dive on the same month a year ago, yes the Forte did grow but only slightly.
The Optima, Cadenza and K900 all took dips, but the sales drop was helped with nearly 3000 (2939) units being sold by the all new NIRO hybrid car, The Sportage sook a huge drop, losing 2,000 units, 1,000 units down on the Sorento, and another over 2,300 drop on the Soul model.
The Sedona grew, but only slightly, so for the month for Kia, the Forte, NIRO and Sedona were the only positive points with all other models losing sales over the same month one year ago, which is really not great news for the brand.
