Re: Kia cee'd

The reviews of it are very good, probably the best Kia ever made.....7 year warranty and apparently even the indicator stalks are on the 'proper' side.

Re: Kia cee'd

On the left. Kia's and other cars from Korea/Malaysia etc normally have the indicator stalk on the right and wipers on the left whereas European cars have indicator stalk on left and wiper stalk on the right.

Looks nice, a bit pricy though?

Re: Kia cee'd

In Richard Hammonds column in the Daily mirror on friday it says the seven year warranty is now bumper to bumper/100,000 miles.

Scroll down to the Up to speed section that is below the pic of the rolls royce.

Re: Kia cee'd

The info I have on the warranty is :
3 years/unlimited mileage full manufacturers warranty
3-5 years/100,000 miles full manufacturers warranty
5-7 years/100,000 miles powertrain warranty
10 years/unlimited mileage manufacturers anti-perforation warranty (annual bodywork inspection required for which a charge may apply)
3 years roadside assistance covering the uk and mainland Europe

I will double-check the warranty status when I pick the vehicle up on Tuesday, its a 1.6 GS Manual/petrol which is a bit pricey at £12,245.00 and I have it on loan for 3 days.  I wanted the 1.4 S but that one was not available.

[size=16pt]Things I like about the cee'd:-[/size]
Nice slick gearbox, pedals area is roomy with a resting plate for left foot.
All round visibility good, all manoeuvres are a piece of cake
CD/MP3/Ipod player
Plenty of boot space and lots of leg room in back
Lots of handy storage spaces for those all important nick nacks
Air conditioning with cooled glove box -



Things I don't like about the cee'd :-
Indicator stalk is on the RIGHT.   roll This I find most ironic as the name cee'd derives from the word "Community of Europe for European Design".  The vehicle was Designed by Europeans, tested on Europeans and buit in Europe but do not follow the trend of European cars to have indicators on the left.
Speedo is NOT visible from the passenger side (no allowances made for extra speedo)
Speedo markings are 20/40/60 etc., with a tiny line in between, difficult for learners to see where 30 mph and 70mph is
Space saver tyre
VERY bright orange dash illumination, very in your face especially when driving in the dark.

Overall, a very reasonably priced vehicle for its class in comparison to others, but not, in my opinion one I would buy as an instruction vehicle.

Re: Kia cee'd

I use the Kia Picanto and have no problems with the indicators being in the right (proper  ;D side)

Pupils coming from different cars get used to it within 20 mins or so and rarely have problem after that, in fact would have as many wiper errors in the Pug as the Kia.

Vanda, the rest of Europe have the indicator stalk on the opposite side to the gearstick, Kia are one of the few manufacturers giving us the same.

According to the "experts" the indicator stalk should be on the opposite side to the gearsick to enable us to indicate if the need arose when changing gear  neutral.

Almost all of the rest of the world use this system, we are the odd ones out due to penny pinching by Ford in the late 70s when they decided to stop changing the stalk over when adapting LHD cars for UK and Ireland,(unfortunately I am old enough to remember it well  ;D ) apparantly they saved millions and all the other main manufacturers followed suit.

I believe however Kia/Hyundai have decided to adapt cars for the UK market onto the "wrong" side from July/August time.

Probably best.
