Re: Volvo or Kia? A tough decision... (Evolvo)

They didn't mention which model people are trading in for a Kia...perhaps the typical '80s 740 Turbo with 220K miles and blue smoke billowing from the tailpipe. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Volvo or Kia? A tough decision... (towerymt)

I love the part about and while Kia quality is still terrible, it was the most improved brand in J.D. Power & Associates Inc. initial quality survey this year.<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Haha, the irony of it here in London we used to have two Volvo dealers here, the second being more family operated changed to Kia after Volvo prices went way higher than they used to be, before the 850 changed to S70. Mind you the line up of cars changed too. They wanted to sell something more in the 240 price range so I can understand the comparison a little bit.

How many Kia's could Kai get for his Volvo if Kai could stand to drive Kia's? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Volvo or Kia? A tough decision... (Evolvo)

"We see Volvo drivers coming to our showrooms to trade in their cars for the Sorento," says Mark Juhn, Kia's chief operating officer.<br>DUH! Obviously, they are not new Volvos and I doubt the people coming in with them owned them from new. I'm sure its people who've gotten used handed-down Volvo's from their parents and they want a new car. Well no poop. Goddamn, I am sorry for my language, but this is ridiculous. I'm not worried that Kia will start to take Volvo's business. I'd call the COO if I could. What a freaking MORON!!!!!!!!! ARGGHHH!!!!! I'd take any Volvo of any condition over a Kia. I think we all would.

What a joke... A $5,000 used Volvo will outperform a Kia in anything you can throw at it. I'll take my 15 year-old 240 over a new Kia any day thank you very much <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">
