Homologation code needed for Pregio

Hi, very happily Iīve brought a Kia Pregio 2.5 over from Holland to Spain with the intention of importing it. But, the required homologation code (contraseņa de homologacion) does not appear anywhere! Can anyone please help with providing the code. Iīm really stuck! Thanks in advance.

Hi, yeah thanks. That only gives the structure of the code. I need the actual homologation code for the specific vehicle. Oddly enough it does not appear in the papers nor on the engine/car. The official KIA dealer is supposed to give me the certicifate of compliance but canīt seem to get it together. KIA Netherlands canīt provide either so itīs now in the hands of KIA Korea. I.m stuck with a fantastic van which I canīt drive legally because of paperwork !

Sorry that info didn't help. From what I found after posting, it seems the vehicle needs to be (certified) by an engineer to obtain the homologation code...

Hopefully these links may be more helpful:

How to import a vehicle or car into Spain

Spanish Homologation for new and used imported vehicles or cars

In short, I would go to your local ITV test centre and ask them specifically how to get the vehicle certified, in Spain.

I would also consider contacting your Embassy: they are there to help, someone on staff must have gone through the same process / be familiar with the procedure or process to obtain the necessary certification.

Thanks for all your time and effort Gottacruise, I have been to the ITV where itīs been explained to me. A technical engineer can only draw up the neccessary document after he/she receives the homologation code so thatīs why I need it first but canīt get it at the moment.

Funny thing of it all is that according to EU regulations the homologation docs are not needed anymore! Problem is that the Spanish havenīt adjusted their legislation !

Greetings PregioJur,

That's a lousy deal, being stuck like that. Maybe try visiting the local Kia Dealer in your area, hopefully they can provide some feedback and/or another resource for a "Plan B", ie: an auto importer resource you can contact that has done the process previously.

Keep us posted, ok? Myself and others here would like to know how you make out with this.

Regards,
GottaCruise
