Ebay Cruise Control Query

Hi,

Hope you are well.

On my cars steering wheel currently I just have the 'volume' and 'call' options features. If I were to buy this:

Would the cruise control option work, or will the car need to coded at Kia to work?

Yes, it is "plug and play". Nothing special required at the dealer (that I know of). Isn't drive-by-wire great?

WOW i was just about to write a review. I bought this part 2 weeks ago. Im the one who asked the seller to order the parts in the first place.Amazing guy there listed for $136 but he gave them to me for $125. To answer your question it is a plug and play i just installed mine in 30min. Its not hard as long as you have a few tools and if you dont then dont let someone rip you off. Its really easy. I usually average 33MPG but using it today im getting 42MPG and thats with it being a little chilly

Awesome - I ordered the part. Let's hope it doesn't take so long to ship to me. :-)

So that would work on a manual transmission as well?

OEM Rio Cruise Control

What an amazing and simple upgrade to add factory cruise control...well worth the price for comfort and improved fuel economy during long trips.

It is amazing that the kit is only half the price of the aftermarket kit and is better integrated by putting the controls in the steering wheel rather than having another stick on the side.

Even for the $136 I think it is a steel.

I have an automatic trans so i cant speak for the manual trans. My friend has a 2012 Veloster and he has to put his car in neutral for cruise to work. I put mine into neutral while cruse was on and it canceled the set. To be safe go to a dealership and ask if there are any special switches that go to the clutch and check to see if the clock springs are the same
