I don't have remote locking on my 2006 Rio but the key locks all the doors with one turn in the driver or passenger door. On the inside if I lock the drivers door from the inside all doors lock at same time.
Oh aye welcome to the nut hoose Matt

Ah ok thanks for the advice! Phoned up the dealership and asked and said that the Rio1 doesnt have central locking. Bit of a let down as they assured me it did!

Are you able to complain (i.e. miss guided information), perhaps they might 'do something'? It seems unfair that you were told something by someone who hadn't been experienced/ kowledable at the time of purchase?

Could complain but it would be my word against theirs and doubt they would do anything, what could they do anyway? :(

I know for a 8-9 grand car, it doesnt even come with central locking! Terrible!

did you not notice when you pick the car up or on a pre purchase road test or even in the information booklet on the rio if you was misled then i have a right the only other option is you can have it fitted kia do a upgrade kit aswell so that can be something to look at ?

Nope it looks just like the other models i believe, and in the booklet for the specifications it just has a blank on for the rio 1 under remote central locking. Doesnt mention any other locking system for the rio1. Is there definately a kit for it?

sad but true all manufacturers do these entry models they make them as cheap as possible so they can then advertise the model from £**** this makes the car look more attractive on paper some makers of Germancars only import 3 or 4 carswith this low spec as they know that customers will not want to buy thebase car because the spec is so poor, sometime these cars are only available in 1 colour usually with steel wheels budget tyres no radio wind up windows no airbags no anti-lock brakes 1 years fullwarranty with a 2 year extended lesser coveretc


these cars also weigh less so they are the ones that get put forward for emission's testing then they will submit the highest spec car for crash testing, press road tests etc



its a wicked worldso read the vehicle spec before you sign on the dotted line
