Have you seen the 2012 Kia Soul hamster ads where the rodents rock out to LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem"? Maybe you've just heard about the funky, boxy vehicle that has captured the attention of of budget buyers and young families alike. Either way, you should know that the new Kia vehicle, which debuted in 2009, has literally increased in popularity every day. With over 85,000 sold over the past two years alone, the Kia Soul amazes its owners with loads of standard features, unique styling, and Kia's popular extended warranty. Kia has become the fastest growing company in the country!
It's no surprise, then, that three women, Deanna Sutorius, Vanessa Branch, and Rachel Cothey all slept, ate and lived in a 2012 Kia Soul for three straight weeks for an opportunity to be the proud owner. The contest which took place at the Halleen Kia dealership in North Olmsted, Ohio, was a grueling one. The ladies were only allowed a single five-minute bathroom break per hour. That was the only time they were allowed outside of the vehicle, other than a fifteen minute stretch-your-legs break every six hours. They were also required to rotate positions in the car every couple of hours. The ladies had, what we thought, an abnormally fun time! They passed the late-night hours by doing pranks on the Halleen staff, and no one expected all three of the ladies to last as long as they did. Co-owner Eric Halleen says, "I figured they'd last a week or maybe a week and half and it would all be over."1 Halleen was so impressed that, instead of only giving away the Kia Soul to one winner, he awarded each contestant prizes. Unfortunately, three vehicles were not given away, however two of the women received a very nice $2,500 second place prize. The women picked a number which corresponded with a briefcase, one containing the Kia Soul prize and the other two containing $2500 in cash. Rachel Cothey was the grand champion, as she walked away with the Soul.
