Hello I have just joined the owners club though I have had a few Kia's starting with Kia Carens and now a Kia Venga 1.4 CRDI Ecodynamics 3 up to now have no problems with previous cars but can not say I have had no problems with this one.The problem is the same as other Venga owners dealer has done 3 upgrades so far with not a lot of luck in fixing or improving the engine problem. One time it was so bad the onboard computer went into limp home mode but when the garage quizzed the computer why it happened it showed no fault found. I think some of the problems maybe caused by software errors but who knows especially when the computer denys there is a problem. If someone produces a car built with old technology which every mechanic oh sorry Technician might understand.
Hi roddy welcome to the club. Hope ypu get it sorted but one of the Venga boys on here got so peed off he took it further and ended up with a new 1.6CRDI Venga. Give "jamesskye" a shout on the Venga section he may be able to direct you in the right way.
