Too bad they don't make those anymore.
Again, if Kia (or anyone else) is going to put creature comforts in their vehicles, all I ask is that they work right. I don't think that's asking too much. How hard could it be, really, to make a working avg MPG display and a working automatic headlight function? Sure, they work right 90% of the time on this Kia, but 90% isn't good enough IMHO.

All prove you WRONG!
I just care less about the add-on non mission critical nonsence stuff and gee whizz screen (int MPG/MILES on TANK/Hand Job in progress) crap stuff while I am driving said car. And weather the world comes to an end if it malfuctuions slightly. And does not work like it needs to get you back from the moon, life and death crap is all Jfisher FYI.
Everything that needs to work does. Stuff that does not is warrenty or fixable if need be. No sleep loss or henny penny the sky is falling over it. The rest of the extra crap is crap period. Waste of time to worry over. 90% you said? Nice. Hummmm there is a childrens tale writting about that too ya know. It is called The Princess and the Pea.
But yes I was ticked off to hell when the slide out on a motor and Pop Up Touch screen for the $34,000 Hardin-Karmon sound system in the used (new owners bought at BARRET-JACKSON) of SHAQ's 2000 RR Silver Seraph in OX BLOOD RED with Chrome Bentley ARNAGE R type reworked with RR center caps rims. Did not work properly all the time your right. I had for the month I babysat it and was living large. M73B54 5.4L V12 Twin turbo (custom) and ZF5HP30 5spd. And no tunes! unless you played with it to get the sub-woofer inline was hard to take and live with. Yes for sure. Oh the A-G-OO-NN-Y of it all. But then at 124MPH dead silent and floating along on a road we will never tell you about, WHO CARES! The Mirrors did not whisle either again.
Have a nice day jfisher. There is plenty of COORS LIGHT in the cooler. Go soak in the hotub.
