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!
nashtitans09 - 17 days ago
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"

+waffle911 Yeah, they share platform/drivetrain development costs/research. So they are very much the same in terms of tech but are still competitors.

Im guessing the lock button on back seat armrest is so you can actually rest your arm there without accidentally pressing a button.

Are you genuinely trying to review this car or is it more like a poking fun at it kinda thing, sounds more like the latter..... you should post some genuine content
Jack D

He should be poking fun at it. It's a 60k Kia for crying out loud. It's laughable. By the way, watch his other videos. He does the same type of thing in all reviews.

Daniel - 14 days ago
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

Kia is such an underappreciated brand. They put in things that would most consider useless but to some they might be useful so they think why not have it anyway . They really care about having options for everyone
Jack D

Actually they are such an overrated brand. Just like Hyundai and Subaru. The Kia fanboy brigade is getting ludicrous.

The lock for the controls in the back is for the passenger so he/she does not accidentally change his or her settings if for example they are asleep.

netrioter - 19 days ago
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.

Why don't we focus on the more important parts of the cars? Like the engine/trans. Etc. It's way more important than the knob on the stereo. Not even sure if Doug has ever showed under a hood.

Does this offer massaging seats full roof moon roof, or changeable interior lighting colors without changing the gauges? How do the quality and features compare to the Continental high end trims? Seems slightly lesser to the Libcoln.

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. Nonetheless, it’s a very nice looking car.

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.
