While the layout has to show that the design of KIA’s showroom is very nice but still got problem feedback by the workers themselves. According to the salesman, Manley and Alex, they have to giving a similar request that been receiving a lot of feedback and complaint from customers. First, the layout on showroom is just one entrance only. That is very dangerous when there is happen the fire. Moreover, there is lack of parking lot for the customers which are not enough the parking lot when the showroom held the fair. Third, the building structure makes them have a trouble.

About the problem of the hot surrounding in the indoor of showroom is a physical problem but the design cannot change because it should be follow the company identity. The design of showroom for KIA is the same as others country. The design cannot make change which is should follow the company identity, so the showroom really can move to other locations which is better than the showroom of P. Ramlee Road.
