We reported in our October issue that Ann Arbor Automotive had sold its Acura, Nissan, and Hyundai dealerships to Detroit-based Fox Motors. We neglected to mention that Ann Arbor Automotive had also run a Kia dealership and service center off of Jackson Rd., behind the Hyundai and Nissan dealerships.
That Kia dealership has since been sold to the Michigan “family deal” group. LaFontaine Kia of Ann Arbor employees told us that Fox had not wanted to buy Kia along with the other businesses, possibly since Kia, a subsidiary of the Hyundai Motor Group, is working hard to establish its own identity.
