Hi All,
Ceeds, and other KIAs, are getting very popular in my neck of the woods.
Within a 500m radius of me these have arrived (there could be more) in the past 6 weeks.
Ceeds 4
Ceed SW 2
Pro-ceed 2
Picanto 4
Rio 5
Soul 3
Sportage 2
Sorento 3
Venga 2
Plus an older Carens and a couple of Shuma's.

All the latest ones, except 3, are from the same dealer.

Think I'll start my own branch of the Owners Club

I've only ever seen one pro on the roads around my area. But the soul!! It's like the Italian job they keep coming in threes! There everywere. Think the lack of pro's is down to my local dealer only having the 1. And not showing off the higher spec variants. Compared to some of the higher spec ceeds people tend to look more at them

Since my original post on 19 Oct 11 I've now counted a further 31 KIAs', on an increased radius from me to 1000 metres.
This past week I've had my White Ceed2 on the front drive while using the garage to repair the granddaughters rust bucket and two people have asked over the front gate "how do you find it" while an 'elderly' lady knocked on the door to ask "can I sit in it, please'

Counting KIAs' for a hobby !, sad innit

Really funny is before I got My Pro 4 , I didn't see any in my neighbourhood , only a cuople of Carens , & a Sorento . But I now know of another 2 Silver Pro's in the neighbourhood . Don't want them to be too popular , don't want them to become like a golf !

Now to start counting the Optimas. That should be really interesting as only 1600 are coming into the country this year.

That 'elderly' lady who asked to sit in my Ceed 2, she's 7 yrs younger than me BTW, stopped me while out walking the dog today to inform "I've ordered a Ceed 3 in blue"

In our area there are many more Ceed's, Sportage's and Soul'sthan I've ever noticed before.
Kia are selling an awful lot of cars here anyway. That's for sure.

That is helped by the excellent dealer in Fife. My SW may be one of the ones you see.

That'll be Flear and Thompson then.My last car was a wee Merc 1700 cdi and I was never happy with the paintwork from day one,
and I also had numerous suspension faults and brake pads that never ever fitted properly.
In the first 2 years of it's life brake pads replaced every 3 months and that at the dealers.
The Cee'd SWis a wonderful car by comparison,
no problems whatsoever and the paintqork glistens when it's clean.


At this time of year it's not clean for long. "It's white, did you guess?"

In 1998 I took a punt buying a new kia Sportage for i think just under £10,000, whan i hadn't heard of them, but i have to say from day one i was very happy and any problems i had were sorted either by the dealer or kia customer services, since then we have had 9 new kia's of various models,
and for a long time i seemed to be the only one around the area with one, but now its very different i see them everywhere,I now have a Sportage FE and have ordered a picanto for my wife and daughter, and my sons both have ceed's one pro andand sw.

Hello Kia Customer Service,
Nice to see you here on the group, it's probably the most efficient way to keep your finger on the 'pulse' of 'KiaWorld'
If you really take note of all the comments here, in particular the negative ones, and react positively to them then Kia could be way out in front in the Customer Care centric.

Once again welcome
