of course, on all other car forum NAV stands for the navigation systemNAV, or Naturally Aspirated Veloster means that its the non turbo version. Ive seen ppl refer to the turbo as NAVT but i dont think they are right, its only VT.
A stickied topic is one that can only be made a sticky by a moderator, basically it is an important topic and will show up at the top of the sub-category in the forums. For example, the "what you paid" topic in the general discussion section is a sticky because many ppl post in it and it makes the topic easier to find in the forum. Finally a bump is when someone posts in a normal, non stickied topic to bring it to the top in the list of recent topics.
btw, HYUNDAI stands for: Hope You Understand Nothing's Driveable And Inexpensive...

Great question, great answers. Sticky-ed.Hi, wasn't sure where to post this but could someone define some quick vocab for me? And yes I know these are probably very obvious but; what does NA stand for? as in NA veloster. What is a sticky or bump? Thanks!
Korean Domestic MarketOk, so I'm a total noob with some of the vocabulary out there. I keep seeing an acronym I cannot find the meaning. KDM. What does it stand for and what does it mean?
I still have to tell myself when I see NA or NAV in these threads it's not North American or Navigation.
