Hello Venganians! I own a 6 months old Venga andrecentlyi 've been noticing that the engine is getting louder and louder. Is this normal for a new 6 month old car?
Finally today i noticed a continues rattling sound once the engine is active. Please has any one experienced this?
By the way todays out door tempwas 8 degrees C.

Thanks alot.

Is it a diesel or petrol Venga. I find diesels tend to get noisier in winter especially when cold, mainly its combustion noise.

My advice is to get it to the dealers as soon as possible. If it is a distinct mechanical knock, don't drive it, have it recovered using the Kia RAC system.


I had a 1.6 petrol auto and it was as sweet as a nut. Pass anything on the road except a petrol station.

Thanks so much battyrebor. i am turning the car in for repairs this week. It seems a valve in the engine block went loose, hence the rattling sound.
