Does anyone know if there is a Canadian version of the KIA Tech Info Site, kiatechinfo.com?

not that I'm aware of at least not to the public, the closest one is only accessable by Canadian dealers (special password, etc). In most cases the info on KGIS is almost the same for Canadian vehicles.

Yeah I know just like the World Series is the "world" series.

The Kiatechinfo/Global info site does not address any Canadian documentation and there are differences in Warranties and more. When I was in for an oil change this week my dealer wasn't aware of the latest TSB related to air conditioning. I was just wondering if there was a tech site realted to Canadian concerns or any other site that isn't central to US documentation.

global?
hmm - I hope KIA knows that the globe does not end on America only

the "global" inf. system covers both CDN and USA versions. There is no separate system (at least to my knowledge) that would discuss Canadian only.

www.kiatechinfo.com USA - free service, manuals www.kia.ca/kia-owners-manuals Canada www.kia-hotline.com Europe (paid service!) www.kia.ca/pages/owner/OwnersManual.aspx?lang=en manuals - must pick model, Canadian version - for free

Perhaps "Global" is intended to mean that all aspects of the vehicle is covered comprehensively rather than a geographical reference?

The site does not cover models with the CRDI engines therefore it is only for the North American Models

On the other hand Global Service Way site covers the European models. Note that this too contains the word GLOBAL !!!


Farfetched? maybe!

I think you will find, it is GLOBAL. But depends on WHERE you log in and WHERE your ACCOUNT comes from. It might not show you or I in the USA
anything other then what we got. But in the UK they get the diesels data and other stuff ONLY THEY get. And so on and so on. Multi informational KGIS site with a regional FILTER built in. JUST a (food for) thought here. Makes it LESS cumbersome for us and them with data WE ALL DO NOT NEED TO KNOW. And have no use for.

NOTE: This is 2011 folks. Back in the day we had MICROFISCHE/DVD in three or four versions. NA (usa/cdn/mex) UK(forget whom they were) ASIA and EU. How hard would it be NOW! to have a filter to do this in real time. ON-LINE SAT LINKS do it at dealers since 2000. If you have the CODE you can get the data not intended for your area. And only a FEW dealers get that code! Ones that work on GREY market vechs.

from this what I heard/read KGIS is only CDN, and people from other parts of the globe logged in but did not see their cars.

www.kiatechinfo.com USA - free service, manuals www.kia.ca/kia-owners-manuals Canada www.kia-hotline.com Europe (paid service!) www.kia.ca/pages/owner/OwnersManual.aspx?lang=en manuals - must pick model, Canadian version - for free
