Because they shouldn’t, Kia makes pretty dang good vehicles now. The Stinger looks great and the Telluride damn well might be first or second in a very competitive class.

BUT I keep seeing Kia vehicles with plastidipped or blacked out badges (like above) on everything from Optima’s to Stingers, even a Telluride last week. At least some people replace theirs with a KDM badge.


What’s with that? I just find it interesting how many I see around my city, there shouldn’t be any shame in owning a Kia nowadays.

Great, now I miss my old SI

Even my old roommate blacked out his Kia badge on his Forte, guess I never really asked why back then.
