Barry,
Enjoy your car. I think the XR trim is the same as XE but with leather rather than cloth seats. In which case it will not have the auto lights - but you're not missing much from what I have read.

Yes, you will have the 7 year warranty (in my experience it does work but it's worth reading the documentation as not everything is covered for the full 7 years.

The petrol model seems to have less issues than the CRDi which can suffer from EGR valve sticking and DPF regeneration problems.

Let us know how you get on.

Richard

It's funny what's important to the main occupant of the front passanger seat. When we were living in Germany the main requirement for any new car was a long wave radio so that we could pick-up radio 4 (and the Archers)....I bought a SAAB 900 with LW but the reception was terrible....the poor SAAB dealer never heard the end of it until he realised the wrong aerial had been fitted.
Anyway are you battered? What's the alternative if it does have an Aux input??

Lol Richard.

Paid the balance of the car :)
It's in mint condition 1 owner it's got less miles the I thought. (22,000)
No marks or dents ect. Full dealer stamps.
Part of the deal the Kia dealer will service & mot and fit 4 new tyres.
All for £9,950

Must say Kia hq have been good with giving me some information about the car.

AND yes Richard it's got a USB port for the wife. (maybe get a treat tonight ;-) )

I could not believe how silent the engine was on tick over.
