Yeah, My Soul gets 5 mpg less, so why wouldn't Kias payment estimator, estimate 5 times more. Wonder who regulates that?

They doctored that too, The foreign car company have never played fair, with past recalls, so why do think they will with other regulations,.

Alot of estimates are done under ideal testing lab conditions which is NOT the average American driving experience. Even the lawn tractor manufacturers got caught over estimating horse power on the engines in many cases only using output numbers from an engine without a load or hooked up to anything.
Also it might be comparing apples and oranges but I think Samsung another Korean company got caught taking bribes and making false claims. Maybe there is somekind of undo pressure on Korean executives for success OR that's the way they do business period. I do hear for the most part Koreans are good honorable people.
But after seeing what goes on in corporate America for numbers nothing surprises me anymore.
