I understand that early in the life of the Venga, Kia made some changes - when were these? If I was looking to buy a used Venga what reg is the revised Venga? Any way of telling from pictures if it's the latest version?
Just don't buy one with the 1.4crdi unit, they don't work properly. The 1.6 petrolauto & 1.4 petrol drink fuel faster than a 40 tonne truck. The only one which seems towork ok for the minute is the 1.6 crdi, though you can only get this in the 3 model which is circa £17,000 buy a Polo blue motion instead.
I have the 1.6 auto and disagree that it drinks like a fish. Of course its not as economical as a diesel, but the venga has a much better mpg then my old Vauxhall Aguila auto and astra auto.
Forgot to day sorry....the onboard computer says my average mpg is about 40ish. As my wife only has an auto licence we have to have an auto....then again, with such good diesel mpg figures attainable now perhaps I sould trade in my wife and get a diesel..think of the money I would save on fuel...and clothes..and new hats...and perfume...and new curtains...and...
My 1.4crdi is turning into a nightmare & customer services is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard. Its mpg is now only around 40mpg & I have since test drove the other models at a different dealership & another 1.4crdi locally with similar results. My 136000 mile 1.9dci laguna was getting 40 mpg around town & 50+ on a run.
