|It boggles my mind what people will believe just because it's on a sticker in the store. And let's not get confused here, a showroom is a store.|
Sadly, a vast many consumers now days have the motivation of a Sloth and the intelligence of a Hamster. So if it says a certain MPG on the sticker, that is what they are going to believe. In fact, some people probably won't even pay attention to what the sticker even says....let alone notice if it ends up being accurate or not.
The Dealer's Canadian sales manager used 7.5L/100 as one of his MAIN reasons why I should buy the AUSTRALIAN Soul +, other reasons where all the extras that came with the Canadian/Nth American, but did not come with the Australian 2lte plus car, these issues where not mentioned until I had payed for the car and tried to find them[things like blue tooth where there but no voice activation] Kia's accessories page seems to have nothing listed for the Australian Soul.
Kia Australia are also pushing 7.5L/100 on their official site, and the best I can get is 12+/100 that's about 60% less than quoted, I drive after morning peak and before afternoon peak traffic flows, and you wonder why I am PI***d off.
