Slow import sales, save auto industry

OlympiaNovember 10, 2012 

As an owner of my third Kia Soul, I can only speculate that a government agency may have acted with deliberation of forethought to slow runaway Korean car sales long enough for the bailed-out American automakers to recover some lost sales volume.

If my cars only made the 24 mpg attributed to the Soul during recent radio news broadcasts, I would be throwing more pollutants into the atmosphere than a flathead Ford with a collapsed piston.
