In 1957 Kia started building motorcycles, the trucks in 1962 and finally entered the automobile market in 1973. Kia did not start selling cars in the USA until 1986 when they partnered with Ford to produce some models for Mazda. Most went to overseas markets but the Ford Aspire and Ford Festiva were sold here in the United States. late the Optima, Sportage, Rio and Soul were introducted to our market.

Starting in 1992 a new company, Kia Motors America was formed here in America and the first of 4 dealerships were sold in Portland, OR. In 1994 the Kia Sephia was the first to be delivered followed by the Kia Sportage. Trouble hit the automaker in 1997 and sold 51% of the stock to Hyundai who outbid Ford.
