    This is the last car that would ever need a sport display like that. Hilarious.

    I don't know. It already has a powerful V8 all Kia would need to do is throw in some Magneride adjustable shocks and tighten the steering and maybe throw in a E-LSD diff and it might surprise you.

    Any car with an automatic tans has ZERO need for a tach anyway. Even manual trans really only need upshift lights that come on like racecars have.

    Sure they do - cars (can) run so quiet these days, it helps to have a tach so you don't forget you already cranked it and try to restart it after, say, putting your seat belt on.

    Don't have that issue with my current minivan but I've done that "restart" thing a couple of times in testers and rentals.

    I suppose you could have a disclaimer scrolling across the touchscreen that says It's Running Dummy! :D

    So does that mean you never put it in sport mode this whole time? I drove that car for a few days and figured that out immediately.
