Facebook ‘Kia Smile’ contest – one week left! January 7th, 2011

We love car stories and so do our fans!

To celebrate Kia’s tenth year as the major sponsor of the Australian Open 2011, we asked our Facebook fans to share their most beloved car stories for a chance to win an all-expense paid trip for two to the Grand Slam event. As a result, we received more than 240 stories from eager fans telling us about their random acts of kindness, drives home with their babies, memorable adventures, namesakes and friendships. The stories all made us SMILE!

Our team of judges from Korea, Canada and the UK had a tough time deciding but were eventually able to make their final selection of 10 stories to be put to an online vote by Kia fans on our Facebook page. Check out the clip below for a summary of all 10 stories.

We invite you to check out our Facebook page to cast your vote before the contest closes January 14, 2011. If you vote, you are also eligible to receive Facebook credits from Kia Motors through a random draw after the contest closes. You can’t win if you don’t vote!
