In 2004 KIA got money an lots of help from Hyundai ... (actually a few years earlier) The Sportage and the Tucson were very close relatives as was the "new" Spectra and the Elantra... A breath of fresh air into the lungs of KIA... Cars that didn't rust out and drive trains that became known for reliability (10 years/100k warranty) on par with Honda, Toyota, .. The beginning of the "New" KIA...
Then came Peter Schreyer of Audi fame... and people started looking at KIAs...

2009 I came real close to buying a Soul, when the dealer tried to sell my an extended warranty, and said
that the timing belt had to be replaced at about 60 thousand miles I walked away.
