    As long as there are other car brands out there and as long there is an equivalent from another brand, I will never buy a Kia. Lower Quality than a Japanese Car and more important poor customer service. I have purchased 3 Kia K series vans because I needed a 4x4 van and only Kia has a 4x4 Van right now, all from the different dealers, Terrible service from 3 different dealers.

    1. They promised me in writing a 3M tint, They did not deliver 3M tint. Instead the supervisor said the SA is not authorized to promised a 3M tint. I wrote a letter to the President and KIA Philippines , Dedma no reply
    2. They won't deliver the car you have to pick it up
    3. Aircon busted in 1 month of the 2 Kias , you have to wait 6 months for the spare parts coming from Korea daw.
    So we just have it repaired ourselves. Intentional gimmick by Kia so that they will not service their vehicles under warranttee.
    4. They won't deliver the plates.

    So guys, If you have a choice, dont buy a Kia, mayayabang mga tao diyan. Sinungaling pa. Tapos
    Sirain naman ang aircon.

    I think its a good alternative over the fortuners and monteros... it is diesel and can seat 5+2, the 2.2 engine is also reliable so far.

    I agree with the engine reliability...although the paired transmission is a wet DCT. I am not sure why they modified this when the fuel savings advantage (vs traditional automatic) was reportedly only at 2%-3% only. Hopefully, when AC Industrials bring it here, they will find a way to change it for Philippine conditions. And the basic trim will be competitively priced

    I think they really wanted to increase the performance. acceleration is improved by 9% which is fantastic for this 2T kimchi. the 3% improved fc is indeed small.
