Here are a few of the Kia K9 clips just released an hour ago. The one directly below this text is the one that makes the car look best. Great sound design on these first three clips. Why cant HMG put these kinds of sounds into their cars?
While every other automaker races to abandon dying segments in North America, Kia is releasing all new generations of cars that were already at the bottom of those doomed segments to begin with. Seriously, look here!
Now, I know that you suddenly want to invite me in to bust up that chifferobe but gird yo’self, fella! I can’t believe I still own this but...well shoot, I figgin’ love this Amanti! It’s been so long now that I wonder to myself, “How did this even happen?” Psh, doesn’t matter! I’m thankful it did happen. This 13 year…
I dont have any other big news besides this peek at the facelift. The Sedona is another vehicle that could very well receive the 2.2 diesel in North America because HMG (especially Kia) is solidly in the DGAF-phase of brand growth. Also, as diesel becomes less popular in Europe everyone is trying to make up the…
We will see the 2019 RJ next month and it’s looking great already! HMG is definitely bringing the Bentley feel downmarket while retaining the simplicity and ease of operation that is becoming a Korean car trademark.

We here at the Wobbles Institute of Data Extrapolated Without Research — or WIDER since no one pays attention to that second dubya — have created a 100% mostly accurate three step process that determines the answer to, “How much should my car payment be?” Rather than be snarky and hit you with an unsolicited life…
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, 24 of the 36 available Kia Stingers are the GT2s. I’ve said before that the Stinger is the type of car that should average 2,000 monthly sales in order to be truly considered a hit. And have no fear Oppo because every ingredient for severe depreciation is present and plentiful!
If youre wondering why I haven’t speculated on the Supra/Z4 in awhile it’s because I’m still feeling on target with this speculation from November. I still say that this BMW-Toyota partnership is all about a mild-hybrid powertrain that will be introduced in the Bimota Zupra (specifically the Z4 M50i).
Here is my ultra basic quick check for determining what market a 2018 sedan/liftback is competing in. Just take the price and find the segment (pretty much size classification). With just two things, you’ll have a basic way of telling whether it is a luxury car, premium car, value car and blah blah blah.
No round housings!
Like a Chevy Volt Coupe with 403 hp / 960 lb-ft, half the efficiency, and a tenth of the practicality. This and the Aston Martin Rapide are the only “true” four-door coupes out there, everything else is just a sedan. This is the car that had Stealth Mode before any Mustang, 32 miles of electric range, and is a great…
I honestly don’t have anything to say, just had a good night driving. That’s enough, right?
Lasted *90,000 miles on the Michelin Defender LTX M/S tires. I wrote an update about a year ago before the WK2 hit 100,000 miles. Total runtime was 42,734 miles (November 17, 2015) to 131,941 miles (February 9, 2018).
Pick your top four favorite auto brands then make a four vehicle garage. That’s it, so show us which brands you love most and as always, enjoy yo’self!
Only odd thing I’m seeing is that while there are base GTs with the M-LSD for $41,450, there are also a few GT2s out there priced at $52,300. One of those Yellow GT2s is here in Albuquerque apparently. The base Sunset Yellows are the best value across the entire Stinger lineup and are likely to be the variant with the…
There were 455 K900s sold in the US last year. For comparison, Bentley sold 1,152 Bentaygas and McLaren sold 1,110 cars in the Land of the Free and Home of the Whopper. Though presumed dead after skipping the 2018 model year, the US will be getting an all new K900 for 2019.
I’m working on a market analysis in order to bring you all some new speculations. For those that don’t know, I consider myself an automotive branding and market enthusiast. Sometimes I post these preliminary glances before hitting you all with bigger posts on why come this happenin’ and other things that make you…
A win for Wobbles! I’m a firm believer that durability is up to the manufacturer but reliability is in the hands of the owner. The XF drives better and better every weekend and there are no electrical issues, not even hiccups in keyfob detection!
