Go from Point A to Point B with Soul

You have seen the commercials for the Kia Soul in Bridgewater, NJ. Funny little creatures drive around post-apocalyptic landscapes with robots battling it out until the dance breaks out. They sit in their vehicle rocking out to some hip hop tune while their fellow creatures are driving cardboard boxes and falling over. The commercials are cute, eye-catching, and funny in an odd sort of way. Who knew that hamsters could sell cars? While visiting your local Kia dealership will probably not reveal to you these giant hamsters, it can reveal to you the truth about cars in general and Kias in particular.

Point A

A car’s main function should be to get you from point A to point B. That is it. Every other vehicular function in American society is not a function of the car itself but is a function of perception. Even with numerous calls to not judge a book by its cover and judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin, people are still judged based on their appearance rather than their abilities and how they apply those abilities. Cars, like clothes, are a part of that character.
 
Point B

People in the United States have grown up with the car as the primary rite into adulthood. It represents freedom from the parents and prying eyes. It represents the freedom to go anywhere, to take any job, and to be anyone. A car is the be all, end all of American public life. Without a car, you are nothing more than a schlep looking for a ride.
 
The Right Car

The car in American society is imbued with so many mythical stories and characteristics that it is important for the driver to remember that the car is just a machine and nothing more. Even if it is a really cool car with the street cred of a Kia Soul in Bridgewater, NJ, it is still just an object to be used at the discretion of its owner. The right perspective on your car will help you maintain a good quality of life.
