Forget Kia of the past
Interior globe - easy fix.
Seems to spit out fuel when filling to the first 'click'.
Not a fault, but the trans or throttle should be reprogrammed or something!!!
Very comfortable, drives nice, interior reminds me of a Volkswagen. This interior is unique to the Cerato range, as it has soft touch vinyl on the dash and doors, and cloth on the doors, unlike the earlier Ceratos.
My model is the Si hatchback with the 6spd auto; very good, but feel that the throttle or trans should be reprogrammed or something. Not that it's a bad trans, but it does take time getting use to it. But I think it's due to my driving (I'm very light on the pedal; when I need a downshift, I lightly tap it expecting it to change).
At highway speeds, it picks up speed flawlessly. Factory Bluetooth very handy, and the black interior is beautiful.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
