Default does anyone own a kia?

considering we are all nba fans here and kia is the official car of the nba, does anyone here own a kia?

and im not talking about your parents - unless they are big nba fans either. i am just curious to see if there is any correlation between nba fans and owning kias. seems like they are wasting their advertising money.

One of my chick friends owns a Forte and she likes to watch the Slam Dunk competition. Does that count...

"official car of the NBA"... that's pretty-much right up there with "official investment bank endorsed by the kung fu panda."

no, i don't own a kia, nor do i have any plans to get one.

Nope, I own a Camry. I went with my parents when they recently bought a new 2012 Camry. When they checked out Kia the car just felt so cheap. The interior was not only poor quality but it felt so small. They don't know how to make the interior feel big and spacious. Plus the company just does not have the reputation to be charging a premium price on their cars. The dealers lie like crazy about how reliable Kia's are when they know they don't hold a candle to Toyota.

this is exactly what i thought - no one. why does kia even bother adverstising towards nba fans?

its the same thing when the nba hires people like justin bieber to do commercials for the nba. wtf? dont they realize that most people who like the nba are not the same people who like justin beiber? someone with a high salary made that decision - so stupid.

I guess they want to raise their brand image to be more sporty. We might not buy that idea but casual fans might. NBA is seen all over the world.

With Justin Bieber, he can attract the next generation to the NBA. We aren't the target market for the specific commercials.

Nope. And don't know anyone that owns one either. Hyundais are more common here, as cheap cars go.
