I just wondered how Kia can continue selling cars with so
many problems as mentioned on this site

I have ordered the venga
but I did this before looking on
this forum

Now I have doubts as
to the reliability of the product.

Am I right to be concerned?

Nah, every manufacturer has duff cars. But remember this..as humans we rarely praise. We always moan about things. Probably 95% of all owners have no issues but you only hear about the 5% who do have issues.

Enjoy your car :)

Exactly,enjoy it, If anyone knows about kia problems its me...my first experience of a kia was driving my dads ceed- A fantastic car in every way, so i decided to buy a venga- more my size of car- disaster of a car, but it was replaced with another one that is great!, Of the x number of thousand venga s on the road in europe,the number of problems is low considering the amount of cars they have shifted lately!,And yes,the cars are only as good as the person who is tightening the bolts,or programming the robot,everyone has off days.
I personally think the Ceed,Venga,And sportage are great cars.
Enjoy it!
James.

Since the late 90s I have bought 9 kia's and have ordered the 10tha picanto for the wife in addition to this my sons have had 2 ceed sw's a pro ceedand a picanto between them and my daughter has just picked up her new picanto, her second, and the incdence of problems with any of these cars has been vey low or non existant, and when there has been a problem its been sorted under warranty no trouble. In comparison to this during trhe same period I also have had peugeot, citroen, seat, fiat, nissan, and mazda which have all had a lot more problems during ownership the citroen was a particular pain in the ass and spent more time at the dealers thanI had it.
What the other guys said is right any manufacturer has problems, but the majority ofKia ownershave none and these are the ones you dont hear from.
Just buy it and enjoy it and remember if its broke they got 7 years to fix it, lol

My Venga is about 10 weeks old...it's an automatic in 3 spec...I absolutely love the car. It's in black and after a good clean it looks stunning. I even had one person come up in Sainsburys carpark to ask if it drove as good as it looked. Friends at work were all amazed how good it looked/drove and its equipment levels and would all consider one as their next car.
Well done I say for doing exactly what Kias advert says about 'Parking the cliesheys'...you got a great car coming...enjoy.
Don't forget to let us all know after a week or so what you think of you Venga...(heck I hope I ain't tempting fate now lol)...

As always I repeat that the venga is a superb design doing everything one would wish for.


But if you have one of the cars with the unresovable turbo problem the 7 year warranty only means you can take it into the garage regularly in the hope they will cure it. For the unfortunate few (or many?) this is not happening. It is not a case of a few disgruntled owners. All this costs time money and inconvenience, let alone frustration and annoyance.

iI the assembly lines are as efficient and monitored as we are told, there should not be "Friday" cars!



Ask James, who got converted from 1.4 to 1.6 at Kia's expense.
