2000 Kia Shuma LS 1.5 from Macau
Engine very noisy when cold, some knocking or tapping noise like from valves.
Right rear vision loose (the mirror itself, not the shell)
Internal plastic fitting comes off from roof.
Left rear windows rubber seal shape changed (when I got the car)
Strange noise like the sound "Add" when press the paddle in deep.
Suspension strange noise like the sound "Add" when go through uneven roads.
Instrument panel clear plastic cracked by itself in summer hot days.
Air conditioner fuse like parts (The one in the box at the engine room) out of order, needs to be replaced.
Steering wheel not straight the first day when I just got the car from the dealer.
Too many problems and faults, although they are not major. But still waste owners a lot of valuable time.
It's good in terms of value, but annoy by a lot of minor problems.
Hope Kia can improve the quality of parts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
