CORRECTION! The K900 is only offered this year with a turbocharged V6, with no V8 option. Big thanks to C&D and Motor Trend for getting this wrong. Last time I rely on them for info! https://www.motortrend.com/cars/kia/k900/ https://www.caranddriver.com/kia/k900

Doug, I love your reviews. However, the clock in the K900 is a Maurice Lacroix. They are a Swiss watchmaker and the Masterpiece is one of their models.

+Android Wazko Lol credibility was lost while writing for Jalopnik. They're just a bunch of hipsters that drive brown diesel Volkswagen station wagons. There were so many moments I cringed in this video. 311 hp turbo V6? Like, he didn't even question the output of a turbo V6 being the same as everybody else's NA V6? Including Kia's own V6? What is this lock button on the armrest with buttons for??? 5.7 second 0-60 time, 4/10??? That's literally pretty damn quick unless you're strictly comparing it to sports cars. That's like giving it a 0/10 for utility because it can't tow as much as an Kenworth. Or because it lacks a third row. Or removable doors and skid plates. I enjoy watching him or even reading Jalopnik articles from time to time, but that whole crew is largely for the "Hurrr Durrr too mainstream" hipster group and I find myself contemplating cancelling my internet service upon reading the stupid crap. "Corvette smells like plastic, unacceptable at 55k" "Much less capable Subaru STI costs 40k and literally is a 17k car with a plastic interior. I must hide erection"

11:00 Doug the the reason why there is a lock button at the back is cause a lot of Koreans in the upper middle class and above have drivers to drive them around, however not everyday or every moment are they present so people switch between driving the car themselves and then being driven in. So there’s a button for you to press if you forgot to unlock it and then you sit at the back

one thing you didnt mention is Kia has no rental car program when you have to get it fixed under warranty...I learned the hard way when my 2014 Soul blew its first engine at 19k miles and its second engine at only 47k miles. I got stuck paying 2 weeks rental both times...That was 400 bucks each time. They wound up having to buy it back when engine 3 died at 62k and no...i never hotrodded it. They kept putting the wrong oil in it...i made SURE i let Kia do all the oil changes for a reason...because they will fight you tooth and nail about warranty service if they dont do the maintenance.

Not hating at all. This car is extremely nice, specially the turn signal. That blew my mind. However they have copied Mercedes’ look. I have a Mercedes and the taillights are extremely similar, the climate control buttons, the paddle (they also have the same bubble feeling he’s talking about at 9:04, The speaker set up, ect.

They probably put the things on the back of the paddles for when you're turning the car and the steering wheel might be upside down. Then the plus and minus do not matter, because when you are turning the car you should be looking at the where you are going instead of the paddles.
