    WagonR 2017 Or Picanto 2017 ?

    Hi Guys A quick update.For those of you asking about the fuel efficiency I and few other online buddies have noticed better efficiency with the Ceypetco Euro 4 Octane 95 compared to the one in IOC.However please remember these are just contributing factors what Really matters is how Hard you are on your pedal & your driving style !

    Automatic Transmission -D3

    Hey all, Just a small clarification.Read in few sites that d3 on automatic transmission is used for hills, stop & go traffic. When in congested traffic conditions which is common in colombo driving what advantage does it give over driving with D ?. Is it okay for the transmission to be driven in d3 in the long run ?.

    Hey, Thanks for the update.However theyve not charged for a air filter this time.I Anyway checked mine,looks okay. Also ive a dashcam in the vehicle. It works whenever engine is switched on.Guessing from the time and different footages they seem okay except for discussing some office politcs, lol.Which we are not saints at. Ha ha.Thanks again for taking the time and for the heads up.

    Manual Airconditon

    Sorry if its a funny question. This is my first car so please forgive me if this is stupid. Just want to know is it nessecarry to switch on & off the manual ac everytime the vehicle is switched on and off or is it okay to operate it with the key,That is let it be switched on always so it starts & switches off whenever the vehilce is started ? What is the right practice that wouldnt harm the vehicle ?

    Hi buddy, Lol your biological explanation on point.Made me laugh like hell.Did my first service today.Professionilsm at its best by the Kia service center but I am sure this comes with a price.No doubt KIA is called the poor mans audi.Since its my first car,everything is worth it. Thanks to each & everyone who helped me with your time and analysis.Gave this old man such a piece of mind.Thanks again. P.S Uploading few interior pics for your viewing pleasure as the car looks, brand new after service.

    Hi Sorry for the delay. Amazing car if you are not going to be worried about fuel consumption.Does 10 inside city and out around 12-13 out of city but there are other guys who have mastered thid car who claim they get about 13-1,Which i guess comes with a lot or experience. Its more of a learning and if you drive it wisely can probably juice out bit more.Its a rev happy car so if you keep it in low revs it performs better. Not a expert at explaining stuff but will give it a try.If your drive the car like a bycycle where you peddle and coast and then peddle when required this car is pretty good(look up eco driving tips on google) but if you always want to keep your leg on the accelerator and race then not the car for you.Like above commentors the car feeling is amazing,no denying that but if you are concerend about fuel then get the wagon r.

    Thank you all.Actually its a bit lighter..The brochure had a darker colour for Alice blue & lighter colour for celestial blue my kids chose the Alice blue with reference to the colour on the brochure and are bit upset about the lighter shade as it looks like the blue for celestial blue from the brochure. Thanks for the compliments on the color. Thanks again to each & everyone of you who guided me & gave sensible advise. Btw any recommendations to get seat covers ?.thanks again !

    The driver in me wanted to go for the manual but considering this is going to be used by my son & daughter prioritising the safety & convenience went for the auto.
