And the point that I made is that you're making a big deal of nothing. It isn't a play on words, and there's no deviousness to sell more cars. A car buyer doesn't go to a "Kia Motors America" dealership to buy a car, they go to their local Kia dealership. Here is the Kia Motors Worldwide Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Kiamotorsworldwide Here is the Kia Motors America Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/kia They're different, and they each cater to different regions and markets. Every brand does this, including American brands to overseas markets.

The point I was trying to make was that their play with words confuse people into beleiving things that will help them sell cars.

Kevin Michalski, it's no different than "BMW North America" and "Honda of America." The company is not implying it is an American car, but that the manufacturer has an American Headquarters that puts out news relating to America. Kia Motors America on FB is differentiated from Kia (global, of Korea) in this respect.

Kia Motors "America"?? The only person that would belive that their buying a "American" car when purchasing a Kia, would be an ignoramus
