Could be pressuring, could also just be free publicity. How many people have gone to this dealers website that otherwise would have zero reason to? I think this was featured on Jalopnik recently too. Maybe at that price they’re fine selling it, but also perfectly fine if it sits there forever and just spreads across the internet driving the occasional Kia buyer to their website indirectly.

For sure. Would be kind of ironic if he did this initially to spite his wife "fine- i'll put it up for sale on my kia website", but as a result, went viral.

Maybe that's like the Oakeys and Panaslonics I used to see street sellers hawking in the Bronx on the way back from Yankee Stadium when I was a kid. Jerome Ave. specials
