It seems a lot of people realize that Doug is biased against this car. Despite his criticisms, it is a fair competitor. To be fair, he does these reviews for their "quirks and features", and doesn't mention practicality, build quality, cargo space, etc. The video below is worth a watch to see the natural potential of this vehicle in Korea. The Alex on Autos - Korean K9 Luxury with the VIP package . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKw2p3_qgEA American Kia K900: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JS4EVpCKgHU If you want to judge this car to be mediocre, you might as well judge supercar owners to be overzealous and pretentious assholes. This vehicle was not made for the American market and America isn't the target market. Apparently, this car sells way more in South Korea, the Middle East, and China. This is a vehicle orientated towards the passengers rather than the driver. I watch these videos for the entertainment and novelty, not because I want an unbiased and realistic review. However, sometimes certain videos feel like Doug will pick a vehicle to review with prejudice. If you really think this is a terrible buy for $60k, how can you ever think the Pagani Huayra or the Bugatti Chiron is worth $3 million? Unless you are a multi-millionaire where $3 mil is chump change, they are NOT good value cars. Fifty loaded Kia K900s or one highly impractical and ridiculous Huayra? Owning a Huayra is like owning a working military-grade tank. You'll never get to use it's full potential unless you have somewhere to use it, say a firing range? Take the car to the track! But then you spent $3 mil on a performance car so you can either drive it one way in a straight line, or in circles. Chances are you're not going to go above 90 mph in any ridiculous performance car, so you just spent all that money on something you can't even use. Not to mention this car, while spending $60k on any car for the sake of value, isn't really a good value (since you can probably get something at least decent for $20-30k, say a Mazda 6 Grand Touring), this is a much-less pretentious and at the very least, competitive vehicle for the full-sized luxury sedan market.

I do see and understand what he's saying. But, what he may not know (completely reasonable) is, I believe the car was designed in the luxury trim and then toned down for the premium trim. Alot of his gripes are rectified with the luxury trim. I sat in and test drove the premium, then found a luxury and bought it. I'm about 2 months into ownership and definitely think the doug score is off a bit.

I found it ironic that he made fun of the K900 name ("It sounds like a robotic dog from the future") as here in Korea, it is actually called the K9. So they changed the name for the North American market to avoid the dog connotation, but not enough to...avoid the dog connotation.

Haha to be fair, the K900 is named because in Korea, the range of cars starts from K3 -> K5 -> K7 and then the newest and biggest flagship car was the K9. The K900 was changed because in global markets, it was supposed to be named the Quoris but that name was also trademarked by a Chinese car firm and in the NA market, it was named the K900 because K9 is another word for Dog in English. So you're half right!! But it wasn't to go be 400 better than Mecedes or anything.

This is the second time you've mentioned the service interval thing without understanding it. If you'd bother to check the service intervals in the owner's manual of any Kia (or any car, for that matter) you'd notice that the service intervals vary for different things. So you just changed the oil. Good for another few thousand, right? Well, no. Your air filter is due in 500 miles. You set the service interval to 500 miles and it reminds you there is service due. How is this not obvious?

Busting on KIA isn't cool. They have done exactly what Honda and Toyota did when they broke into the US market. They came in cheap and built up from there. You rented some guy's personal K900 with 78,000 miles on it. Like most brands, different packages are available so you can get the features you want. The KIA Sorento is a case in point. It starts at $25k but if you want one with anything in it, you are at mid-thirties and up, all the way to $48k. I have owned a 2014, 2016, and now a 2019. Each one was a little nicer than the previous one. They are excellent vehicles. So be fair in your evaluations. Now, I will agree that KIA and Hyundai both have screwed up on introducing their luxury cars when it comes to marketing. I am sure they will recover. They will probably never overcome the snob factor, but for those that want a nice, luxury car, the K900 is that car. BTW, the car in Korea is the K-9. They changed it to K-900 for the US market.

I don't like this car at all. That being said. All this bitching about the HUD, the back up camera, all these stupid ass amenities that no one has ever wanted or needed until it was there. When you get your car paid off and that stuff no longer works. These people are going to regret that day. More stuff is more stuff to tear up. Give me a 71 Chevy Nova when you didn't need the car to drive for you. Like your stuff, Doug. But I think this new shit is a fad that's already shot car prices up, but wait for that first repair bill.

the reason they have that climate lock on the rear seats is so that if you and someone else are sitting in the back, you can lock the climate so you or the person next to you dont accidentally change the climate because the knobs move very easily.

When evaluating a vehicle please take in to consideration the age of the vehicle. The k900 that was reviewed was a 2015 not 2019. The features that are mentioned as missing from the vehicle probably weren't available as an option in 2015.

This felt like a departure from your normal reviews. It felt more like a bash on KIA with not that much realistic review of things. Don't get me wrong, I'm also one of those people who wouldn't get a KIA simply because I'd be ashamed of the badge, but that's why I was curious about this car... and I get it, it's bad value for what it has to offer, that's fine, but saying KIA should leave this segment? So they failed once, whatever, don't buy this one, but maybe next time they'll come up with a better model with good value. If that were to happen there would be more competition in this segment, and that's in no way a bad thing.

For about the same amount of money for this car, you could buy a BMW '15 550i and the BIG difference is pounds of ft. torque: The Kia 900 is 376 lbs. of ft. torque @ 5,000 RMP compared to BMW's 480 lbs. of ft. torque at ONLY 1,750 RPMs!!! BIG difference! BMW is still the way to go.

I don't see comments about the fonts. But Hyundai/Kia has been using that font since like 2006 so you're late on that GM's font is similar to that of Volvo's just more "square-y," and certain GM products (i.e. Pontiac and Olds) used different fontfaces. Toyota/Lexus keeps changing.... and all look bad

Course the handling is like a german car, that is where their design centre now sits. They ´poached´ senior engineers from Audi and BMW, who design and test them on the Autobahn. Hence, it will handle like a german car. And even as a german car fan, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a KIA nowaydays, they are great cars, except of course on resale value as Doug mentiones (buy it used or as a demonstrator.....)

2 things. 1st, that “rear lock” from the rear center is for in case you accidentally change the rear climate control. That’s way they “lock” it. 2nd, for the rear door lock/unlock is because for the safety for other passengers. That way people will not have a chance to get inside from the other side when people unlock the rear door.

Ok, he keeps comparing this car to the S Class and 7 series. I think he’s forgotten that those cars with some options go for 80k to 90k and even go well above 100k. For 60k, this car is a bargain (put aside the name). Of course you’re not getting all features that those cars that cost 20k more, but you are getting A LOT. The only thing that could be changed is the outer design (which as of 2018, it’s getting a redesign). So Doug, you were entirely wrong bashing this car. Wayyy too biased towards the German cars.
