  1. Wear and tear question...

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    My 12 Rio had the same wear with 56,000 miles on it when I traded her away. Doesn't look all that bad to me. That spot ig going to see a lot of action from you slidding in and out of the seat.

    1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage

  3. engine swap

    2G (1998 - 2001) Sephia
    May be a dumb question, but could it be that the ECU is not recognizing the new engine?

    maybe to shine some light on where her train of thought came from!!!;)
  5. Flat Battery

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    Oh....I see......I thought maybe it was to see how long it took for someone to drive away with your car!!!! Had a friend (young pretty blonde friend) that had just bought a new Honda Civic back in the 80s. She called me a few days after purchase to come pick her up, she was stranded on the side...
  6. Door Paint Mismatch?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    What was funny was seeing the occasional body come out of the oven when one of those un-tiring robots went crazy!!!! The body would look like a golf ball there where so many dings in it!!!!
  7. Door Paint Mismatch?

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    I witnessed this first hand while working at the Honda plaint in Marysville OH. The bodies are painted as a complete unit, doors, hood, trunk lid all assembled and sprayed by robots that open and close the doors and such and are able to spray all the way around them!
  8. Flat Battery

    3G 2011 - 2016 Sportage
    On my Forte when the key is inserted, the parking lights come on. I don't know if this is the case with your Sportage but that would do it! Why would you leave your key in the ignition for 48 hours anyway????
  9. Kia Fuel Additive

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Here in the States you can pick it up at any Walmart or Auto Parts store. Chevron/Techtron
  10. Antena

    2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    Do you have remote start? That is where you will usually see the antenna for it.
  11. Said goodbye to my 2012 Rio EX

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I traded my Rio in today for a 2014 Forte EX in abyss blue! Liked the Rio a lot but in the end it was just too small. Thanks for everyone's help over these past 2 years! Headed over to the Forte forum now, take care everyone!
  12. Kia Rio USB radio random function

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    unfortunately to the best of my knowledge, there is no way to set it to stay on.
  13. Highest Mileage or Kilometer 3rd generation Rio

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    It's not constant but when accelerating it is amost always there and it has gotten increasing worse over time. I was by my dealer The other day and they had maybe 8 to 10 Rios on the lot. Maybe I should go tell them that if i drive all of them and at lest half of them do the sane thing then i...
  14. Highest Mileage or Kilometer 3rd generation Rio

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I had run premium fuel for several tanks without any improvement so I decided that it made no sense to spend the extra money If it doesn't help.
  15. Highest Mileage or Kilometer 3rd generation Rio

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    27000 miles (43400km) purchase date 3/2/12 Only issue so far Is the pinging that never seems to go away. Unfortunately the dealer says its "normal" And "what do you care you have a 100000 mile warranty"!
  16. How does your Rio drive in the snow?

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    We had a bad ice storm here in Columbus yesterday morning I had to drive though a gully to get out of my housing development. There where a half dozen cars and a firetruck heading every which way stick on the ice. I was able to go right between the lot and my little Rio never waived. It was...
  17. Anyone ever order a Type A Key?

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Yeah I had to "dumb down" my description when I went to the dealer. I used terms like basic traditional and non switched key. It seems to throw them for a loop if you actually read your owners manual and and are even a little knowledgeable about your vehicle. I didn't need my key code or Vin...
  18. Just got my Kia card

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I apologize if this is old information but I contacted The customer service line to find out how often i could "reload" my debit card. They told me that once the first round of cards are issued which should be in the next few weeks , they will be sending emails with information as to how to get...
  19. Anyone ever order a Type A Key?

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    Yeah it's not easy, my dealership couldn't tell me definitely if I did or didn't have an immobilizer but I figured for $25 bucks I would at least have a lock out key. My dealer had the blank in stock but i had to wait about a week because they do not have the equipment to laser cut the key...
  20. Anyone ever order a Type A Key?

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I had a type A key cut at my local dealer. Cost me $25 for blank and the cutting. I have the power locks w/remote as pictured and the type A key works fine.
