KIA Proceed 1.6 diesel 113 BHP 2008 :-

4 x Barum Bravauris 2 tyres (225/45 x 17 91W) purchased via Tyreshopper and fitted at National Tyres 307

These tyres have performed just as well as the original Michelin Primacy ones fitted .... they have given better mpg (albeit by only 1 mpg !) ....worn out at earlier mileage but better value for money considering purchase cost of each (ran both sets down to 2mm limit)... and less worry over getting a puncture and less time running on lower tread in the wet.

This car has blown out smoke on nearly every start up from 2 year old ! but it has 'never missed a beat' in the 6 years I have had it except for a problem I had with it 'stuttering/cutting out' one time when it needed a new fuel filter ... that cured it ...I would suggest to all owners to get the fuel filter replaced EVERY year ...not just at 2 yearly intervals as in the service schedule.

These service plans are not huge sums in relation to the 'added up' dealership service costs if you intend to keep the car .... and it will seem even less if you do encounter any major problem that needs to be fixed under the warranty (KIA can't have any case to not accept it ...after all the 7 year warranty must show their confidence in their product) ....less likely any arguing hassle etc you would have to deal with. The extra is a small price to pay I would say.

The disks on my Proceed lasted 44000 from new and I'm a steady 'non boy racer' type of driver
