Kia are South Korean automobile manufacturer :100:

Kia vehicles are not manufactured in the United States. The company’s roots are firmly planted in South Korea, where it began its automotive production and continues to be headquartered today. While Kia has a global presence, its origins trace back to the Korean market, specifically in Seoul2.

I own a 2020 (bought in 2019) Kia Soul EV and an EV6 and I’m from Canada. Zero problems from these cars. Love them to death.
