Thought I would add a good news story for once after adding to several bad news topics.

Last week I returned from the Lake District after very happily towing my 1000Kg Elddiis caravan and it managed just under 40mpg. I was very pleased!!!!

By the way,I chucked a bottle of Millers conditioner in the tank, a tankful or so ago. It has been much better since.

I have had the Venga for nearly a year and although there have been a few negatives there have also been lots of pluses. Am beginning to really like my Venga. ( Touch wood here, last time I said this about my Sedona it blew a gasket on me 20 miles later)

Maybe its the day. I have managed to escape much of events elsewhere so I could be hyper, but the Venga is generally an OK car.

I'll go along with that!


I am very happy with the Venga. My previous car was a Focus estate and the Venga beats it all ends up. It is comfortable, roomy, easy to drive, great driving position, handles well (providing you don't want Clarksonesque power slides round bends), flexible boot, great gearboxand many more plusses. I have had the niggles that others have had, but 99% of the time, it is a super car.



I suppose the "glass half empty brigade" will now have a field day, but I'm sticking with my 1.4 diesel and believing that Kia will eventually sort the throttle lag syndrome out when enough of us have raised the issue with our dealers.
