2004 Kia Picanto LX 1.1 from Singapore
A good car from Pt A to Pt B if you don't mind the slightly slow pickup.
My steering fluid container tilt forward more than other car, so fluid keep spill out.
Exhaust create "wow, wow" sound.
Signal will not auto cancel if turnis less than 180 deg.
Forward Passenger's door a bit of rattle sound.
Need to complaint a few times on the defects before the service centre work on it. Bad servicing!
Later batches seen to have less problems.
This car is nippy and no problem in keeping up with traffic till my soundproofing and 175/60/R14 tyre installed. It slow down a little. But still good in fuel consumption. I am getting between 14km/l to 16+km/l on RON95.
Space, no problems for five normal size persons.
Cute little car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
