I thought as Kia cs are now on this forum and joining in i thought each of us could post what we love about our Vengas,just so they know that we do love some things about these smashing wee cars,and are not just moaners.

I love the shape of the venga,from start to finish,it is actually beautiful to look at.

Spacious, good spec even onthe base models. IPOD connection is great, no more having to cart along dozens of CD's.

Agree with all the above - those who are interested always look twice at the Venga. It is also almost certain that in any given car park my Venga will be the only one there. 5000 miles in and still chuffed to bits with the car.

I have had my Venga 1 since March 2010. Other than the "BOOT PROBLEM" I have never had a problem with it. My wife and I are not exactly small and we found the internal space to be fantastic! The general all round vision when I raised the driving position made it a treat to drive. I still can't believe the comfort and road holding of this machine and there is enough power in the 1.4 to take us anywhere we want to go. Visually, in my opinion, it is a thing of beauty! Could do with a few more MPG's, but we can't have everything.

Regards Venga loving Mugwump

Hi Mugwump,The are gorgeous looking wee cars, i just hope this issue with a number of the 1.4 diesels doesnt ruin it for the cars reputation.
They have so much going for them,
Cheers,
James,

I love the punchyness of the 1.6crdi, the split level boot,the sliding and reclining rear seats,the piano black dash trim and grille,the wide track of the venga,and the gearing,as well as the amount of gadgets you get on the '3',oh and the roof,ahh the roof....Just add sunshine, you hear that god,SUN remember that?

im loving the Bluetooth,the streaming music,the sound quality from the stereo,the heated leather seats that not only heat your bum,but also your back as well.
Loving the split level boot,the reclining and sliding rear seats,the headroom,the legroom,and the airconditioned/heated glovebox.
also loving the all round electric windows and the folding door mirrors.
Loving the grunt of the 1.6crdi,the funny accererator pedal/economy thing and the 50mpg running about town.

I'm loving not having to manually change gears like stirring porridge to be nippy about town.

Another reason I love my Venga is I feel really 'safe' in it. Its hard to explain but I feel it holds its own against anything else out on the road. Maybe its because of the relitively high dashboard or the locking of the doors automatically after 10mph. Its just I feel really 'safe' in it.

Same here paul,and perhaps because it feels quite wide on the road,.
I also like the handy wee display beside the mpg ometer that shows your phone signal,very handy!
