hello! it's my first time to post here.
we own a 99 model besta. it's been reliable until lately when we started having problem with its transmission. when we back up, the reverse releases. we've gone to several repair shops and they couldn't fix it. a friend who owns the same model said that he experiences the same thing. help!

hi! im a new registrant, first time to post.
my view about kia besta van, is that it's a disappointment. (no offense meant to anybody.) most probably because we bought it second hand, and it's a 96 model.
since we had it, about five years ago, we've experienced a whole lot of breakdowns. The aircon was gone after two years, then we had the belt fan replaced at least four times in a month, until it worked, etc., etc. Now we had to replace some shaft and the front windshield (you don't want to know why).
Can you guys give advice or recommend a good and reliable technician. Also, please give suggestions on where i can find a replacement for the broken front windshield.
Thanks a bunch! Mornin!

I own a KIA BESTA since 1995 and it's been working perfectly well. I still get 15KM per ltr on regular city driving. It's roomy, fast and powerful. I guess the secret is on proper preventive maintenance.

oh by the way, if you have overheating problems, it's probably because you have the original radiator built for KOREA's weather condition. For Philippine use, you have to replace your radiator with the bigger once, 3 or 4 rows to suit Philippine hot weather conditions.
