Kia K900 Isn't Fun to Drive, Consumer Reports Says

Lately, Kia’s K900 has been the talk of the town and many drivers have been wondering what this vehicle is all about. So, we can’t help but find Consumer Reports’ review on the K900 pretty interesting.

It seems that they made a 2 and a half minute long video in which they discussed whether the vehicle is worth its price and whether Kia did a good job with this new luxury sedan. According to Consumer Reports the car doesn’t deliver that confidence one expects from such a sedan. They even went as far as to associate it with “grandpa’s Oldsmobile Regency” when it comes to the whole ride experience.

Although this association isn’t an appealing one, it’s interior does have some luxurious suede lining and an enormous back seat. Unfortunately, the guys from Consumer Reports don’t find the white stained wood that attractive and the fact that the sun shades aren’t powered is definitely a minus.

All in all, they don’t seem to think that it incorporates that “wow factor” a luxury sedan should. Still, Consumer Reports agree that in case you don’t want to spend too much on a car such as a Mercedes S Class, the K900 with its 5.0-liter V8 engine or even in a V6 configuration with a 3.8-liter Lambda V-6, might be the car for you.
