2007 Amanti Owner`s Manual

2007 Amanti Owner`s Manual
kia, the company
Congratulations! Your selection of a Kia was a wise investment. It
will give you years of driving pleasure. Now that you are the owner of
a Kia vehicle, you’ll probably be asked a lot of questions about your
vehicle and the company like “What is a Kia?”, “Who is Kia?”, “What
does ‘Kia’ mean?”.
Here are some answers. First, Kia is the oldest car company in Korea.
It is a company that has thousands of employees focused on building
high-quality vehicles at affordable prices.
The first syllable, Ki, in the word “Kia” means “to arise from to the
world” or “to come up out of to the world.” The second syllable, a,
means “Asia.” So, the word Kia, means “to arise from” or “to come
up out of Asia to the world.”
Drive safely and enjoy your Kia!
Foreword

and determines whether the ignition key
is valid or not.
If the key is determined to be valid, the
engine will start.
If the key is determined to be invalid, the
engine will not start.
To deactivate the immobilizer system:
Insert the ignition key into the key cylinder and turn it to the ON position.
To activate the immobilizer system:
Turn the ignition key to the OFF position.
The immobilizer system activates automatically. Without a valid ignition key for
your vehicle, the engine will not start.

key with other immobilizer keys near it.
Otherwise the engine may not start or
may stop soon after it starts. Keep each
keys separate.

To start the engine, you have to input
your password by using the ignition
switch.
The following procedure is how to input
your password of “2345” as an example.
1. Turn the ignition key to the ON position. The IMMO indicator (
) will
blink 6 times and remain on indicating
the beginning of the limp home procedure.

seconds and 10 seconds (for example,
for “3”, turn the ignition ON and ACC 3
times).
4. If all of the digits have been input successfully, you have to start the engine
within 10 seconds. If you attempt to
start the engine after 10 seconds, the
engine will not start and you will have
to input your password again.
After performing the limp home procedure, you have to see an authorized Kia
dealer immediately to inspect and repair
your ignition key or immobilizer system.
CAUTION
If you cannot start your engine in
spite of limp home procedure, have
your vehicle towed by an authorized Kia dealer for inspection and
necessary repairs.

SAFETY BELTS
✽ NOTICE
2GHB3002
Pre-tensioner seat belt
Your vehicle is equipped with driver’s and
front passenger’s pre-tensioner seat
belts. The purpose of the pre-tensioner is
to make sure that the seat belts fit tightly
against the occupant’s body in certain
frontal collisions. The pre-tensioner seat
belts can be activated alone or, together
with the air bags, where the frontal collision is severe enough.
The pre-tensioner seat belt is installed at
the front seats, and the sensor is
equipped inside the buckle, where presence of passenger is sensed by the fastening of the seat belts. Therefore, pretensioner will not activate if the passenger is not fastened with the seat belts.
Likewise, it will activate if buckled even
without a passenger in the seat. Pre-tensioner seat belt is designed to activate
when the seatbelt is in use. To ensure
the pretensioner seatbelts activate in
event of a possible seatbelt buckle
switch malfunction, the system is
designed to activate regardless of
whether a seat belt is in use or if no seat
belt use is detected within 6 seconds of
turning the ignition switch ON.
➀

1KMB3311A
The seat belt pre-tensioner system consists mainly of the following components.
Their locations are shown in the illustration.
➀ SRS air bag warning light
➁ Seatbelt pre-tensioner assembly
➂ SRS air bag control module
WARNING
To obtain maximum benefit from a
pre-tensioner seat belt:
• The seat belt must be worn correctly.
• The seat belt must be adjusted to
the correct position.
3 30
Knowing your vehicle
Load limiter
When the pre-tentioner activates, if the
system senses excessive seat belt tension on the driver or passenger’s seat
belt, the load limiter inside the pre-tensioner will release some of the pressure
on the affected seat belt.
WARNING
When the pre-tensioner seat belts
are activated and the air bag is
deployed, a loud noise may be
heard and fine dust, which may
appear to be smoke, may be visible
in the passenger compartment and
are not toxic.
Although, it is harmless, the fine
dust may cause skin irritation and
should not be breathed for prolonged periods. Wash your hands
and face thoroughly after an accident in which the air bags and/or
pre-tensioner seat belts were activated.
WARNING
• Because the sensor that activates
the SRS air bag is connected with
pre-tensioner seat belt, the SRS
air bag warning light on the
instrument panel will blink or illuminate for approximately 6 seconds after the ignition key has
been turned to the “ON” position,
then the light should go off.
• If the pre-tensioner seat belt is
not working properly, this warning light will illuminate even if
there is no malfunction of SRS air
bag system. If the SRS air bag
warning light does not illuminate
when the ignition key is turned to
“ON” , or if it remains illuminated
after blinking or illuminating for
approximately 6 seconds, or if it
illuminates while the vehicle is
being driven, please have an
authorized Kia dealer inspect the
pre-tensioner seat belt or SRS air
bag system as soon as possible.
WARNING
The pre-tensioner seat belt assembly mechanisms become hot during
activation. Do not touch the pre-tensioner seat belt assembly for several minutes after they have been activated.
WARNING
• Pre-tensioners are designed to
operate once. After activation,
pre-tensioner seat belts must be
replaced. All seat belts, of any
type, should always be replaced
after they have been worn during
a collision.
• Do not attempt to inspect or
replace the pre-tensioner seat
belts yourself. This must be done
by an authorized Kia dealer.
3 31
Knowing your vehicle
WARNING
• Do not strike the pre-tensioner
seat belt assemblies.
• Do not attempt to service or
repair the pre-tensioner seat belt
system in any manner.
• Improper handling of the pre-tensioner seat belt assemblies, and
failure to heed the warnings not
to strike, modify, inspect, place,
service or repair the pre-tensioner seat belt assemblies may lead
to improper operation or inadvertent activation causing serious
injury.
Always wear the seat belts
when driving or riding in a motor
vehicle.
3 32
Safety belt restraint system
WARNING - Safety belts
To minimize the risk of serious or
fatal injury in an accident, the driver and all passengers should use
the appropriate safety restraints for
their age and size. The presence of
air bags does not change the need
to be properly restrained by a safety belt or size-appropriate child
restraint. In fact, air bags are
designed to work the best when
passengers are correctly restrained
in the vehicle. Be sure you are
familiar with the information in this
section, including the information
on infant and child restraints. Read
the safety warnings on the sun
visors of your vehicle also.
We strongly recommend that the driver
and all passengers be properly
restrained at all times by using the safety
belts provided with the vehicle. Proper
use of the safety belts decreases the risk
of severe injury or death in accidents or
sudden stops. In most states, and in
Canada, the law requires their use.
All seats have lap/shoulder belts. Inertial
locks in the safety belt retractors allow all
of the lap/shoulder safety belts to remain
unlocked during normal vehicle operation. This allows the occupants some
freedom of movement and increased
comfort while using the safety belts. If a
force is applied to the vehicle, such as a
strong stop, a sharp turn, or a collision,
the safety belt retractors will automatically lock the safety belts.
Knowing your vehicle
Since the inertial locks do not require a
collision in order to lock up, you may
become aware of the safety belts locking
while braking or going around sharp corners.
WARNING
Always use the rear seat position(s)
to install your child restraint(s).
Never install a child restraint system in the front passenger position,
as an inflating air bag could cause
serious or fatal injury to a child in
that position.
The rear safety belts use a special autolock feature designed to allow a child
restraint to be used without an added
locking clip. These safety belt positions
normally lock only under extreme or
emergency conditions (emergency lock
mode). However, they can be adjusted so
that they remain in fixed and locked when
a child restraint system is in place. (Use
this auto-lock mode only to secure a child
restraint, never for passengers restrained
by the safety belts.) Page 3-46 gives
instructions on placing the safety belt in
the auto lock mode.
The driver’s safety belt can only operate
in the emergency lock mode.
Safety belts provide the best restraint
when:
• The seatback is upright.
• The occupant is sitting upright (not
slouched).
• The lap belt is snug across the hips.
• The shoulder belt is snug across the
chest.
• The knees are straight forward.
To help you remember to fasten your
safety belt, a warning light will come on
and a chime will sound. See Safety Belt
Warning Light and Chime on page 3-35.
WARNING - After a collision
• Lap/shoulder belt assemblies
may be stretched or damaged
when subjected to the stress and
forces of a collision.
• The entire restraint system
should be inspected following
any collision. All belts, retractors,
anchors and hardware damaged
by a collision should be replaced
before the vehicle is operated
again.
3 33
Knowing your vehicle
WARNING - Cargo area
(if equipped)
Passengers should never be
allowed to ride in the cargo area of
a vehicle. No safety belts are provided for the cargo area. Persons
riding in the vehicle without a fastened safety belt are much more
likely to suffer serious bodily injury
or death during an accident.
WARNING - Twisted belts
A twisted or jammed safety belt
cannot restrain you properly. If you
cannot untwist or unjam the safety
belt, have an authorized Kia dealer
repair or replace it immediately.
Never drive or ride with a twisted or
jammed safety belt.
3 34
WARNING - Belt use
Safety belts must be used correctly
to work properly in an accident.
Each seating position in your vehicle has a specific safety belt assembly that includes a buckle and
tongue designed to be used together.
For greatest effectiveness, follow
these guidelines in using safety
belts:
• Use the shoulder portion of the
safety belt on the outside shoulder only. Never wear the shoulder
portion under the arm.
• Never swing the safety belt
around your neck to fit over the
inside shoulder.
• Never wear the shoulder portion
of the safety belt across the neck
or face.
(Continued)
(Continued)
• Wear the lap portion as low as
possible. Be sure that the lap belt
fits snugly around the hips.
Never wear a lap portion of a
lap/shoulder belt over your waist;
it should always go over the
stronger area of your hips.
• Never use a single safety belt for
more than one person.
• The front seatbacks should
always remain in a comfortable,
upright position when the vehicle
is moving.
Knowing your vehicle
WARNING - Safety belt
care
• A damaged belt may not give you
the protection you need in an
accident.
• Inspect your safety belts periodically for excessive wear or damage. Pull out each belt fully and
look for fraying, cuts, burns or
other damage. Pull the safety belt
out and let it retract a number of
times.
Make sure that the
lap/shoulder belts return smoothly and easily into the retractor.
• Check the latches to make sure
they latch and release without
interference or delay.
• Never close the doors on any part
of the lap or shoulder belt.
• Any belt not in good condition or
in good working order should be
promptly replaced.
CAUTION
Never close the doors on any part
of the lap or shoulder belt. It can
damage the safety belt or buckle
which could increase the risk of
injury in case of an accident.

Never allow a child to stand or kneel on
the seat of a moving vehicle. Never allow
a safety belt to be placed around both a
child and an adult or around two children
at the same time.
It is best for children to be seated in the
rear seats.
WARNING - Children on
laps
Never hold a child on your lap or in
your arms in a moving vehicle.
Even a very strong person cannot
hold onto a child in the event of
even a minor collision.
Many companies manufacture child
restraint systems (often called child
seats) for infants and small children. An
acceptable child restraint system must
always satisfy Canadian Motor Vehicle
Safety Standards. Make sure that any
child-restraint system you use in your
vehicle is labelled as complying with
Federal Safety Standards.
The child-restraint system should be
chosen to fit both the size of the child and
the size of the vehicle seat. Be sure to follow any instructions provided by the
child-restraint system manufacturer
when installing the child-restraint system.
WARNING - Infants and
young children
• Infants and young children are at
much greater risk of serious injury
or death in an accident or sudden
stop if they are unrestrained or
restrained improperly. Follow all
instructions in this section of your
Kia manual and the instructions
that came on and with an
improved child safety restraint
system. The child restraint must
be correctly installed in the vehicle, and the child must be correctly installed in the child restraint.
• All children under 12 are safest in
the back seat.
• Never install a child or infant seat
in the front passenger position.
The baby could be injured or
killed by the air bag if it deploys in
an accident.
• Never allow a child to stand or
kneel on the seat of a moving vehicle. Insist the child sit down in an
approved restraint system.

Knowing your vehicle
WARNING - Hot metal
parts
Safety belts and seats can become
hot in a vehicle that has been
closed during warm/hot weather;
they could burn a child. Check seat
covers and buckles before you
place a child anywhere near them.
3 42
Restraint of larger children
As children grow, they may need to use
new child-restraint systems, including
larger child seats or booster seats, which
are appropriate for their increased size.
A child who has outgrown available childrestraint systems should use the belts
provided in the vehicle. When seated in
the rear outboard seats, the child should
be restrained by the lap/shoulder belt.
If the shoulder belt portion slightly touches the child’s neck or face, try placing the
child closer to the center of the vehicle. If
the shoulder belt still touches their face
or neck they may need to be returned to
a child restraint system. In addition, aftermarket devices are available from independent manufacturers which help pull
the shoulder belt down and away from
the child’s face or neck.
Larger children should use one of the
seat belts provided.
WARNING - Shoulder belts
on small children
• Never allow a shoulder belt to be
in contact with a child’s neck or
face while the vehicle is in
motion.
• If safety belts are not properly
worn and adjusted, there is a risk
of death or serious injury to a
child.
Knowing your vehicle
Child restraint system
(if equipped)
For small children and babies, the use of
a child seat or infant seat is required by
law. This child seat or infant seat should
be of appropriate size for the child and
should be installed in accordance with
the manufacturer's instructions. It is
strongly recommended that the seat be
placed in the vehicle's rear seat since
this can make an important contribution
to safety.
Children riding in the car should sit on
the rear seat and must always be properly restrained to minimize the risk of injury
in an accident, sudden stop or sudden
maneuver. According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly
restrained in the rear seats than in the
front seat.
You are required by law to use safety
restraints for children. If small children
ride in your vehicle you must put them in
a child restraint system (safety seat).
Children could be injured or killed in a
crash if their restraints are not properly
secured. For small children and babies, a
child seat or infant seat must be used.
Before buying a particular child restraint
system, make sure it fits your car and
seat belts, and fits your child. Follow all
the instructions provided by the manufacturer when installing the child restraint
system.
ADAIRBAG
WARNING
• A child restraint system must be
placed in the rear seat. Never
install a child or infant seat on the
front passenger's seat.
Should an accident occur and
cause the passenger air bag to
deploy, it could severely injure or
kill an infant or child seated in an
infant or child seat.Thus, only use
a child restraint in the rear seat of
your vehicle.
(Continued)
3 43
Knowing your vehicle
(Continued)
• Since a safety belt or child
restraint system can become very
hot if it is left in a closed vehicle,
be sure to check the seat cover
and buckles before placing a
child there.
• When the child restraint system
is not in use, store it in the trunk
or fasten it with a safety belt or
LATCH system so that it will not
be thrown forward in the case of a
sudden stop or an accident.
• Children who are too large to be
in a child restraint should sit in
the rear seat and be restrained
with the available lap/shoulder
belts. Never allow children to ride
in the front passenger seat.
(Continued)
3 44
(Continued)
• Always make sure that the shoulder belt portion of the lap/shoulder belt is positioned midway
over the shoulder, never across
the neck or behind the back. The
lap belt portion of the lap/shoulder belt must always be positioned as low as possible on the
child's hips and as snug as possible.
• If the seat belt will not properly fit
the child, an approved booster
seat in the rear seat must be used
in order to raise the child's seating height so that the seat belt
will properly fit the child.
(Continued)
(Continued)
• Never allow a child to stand up or
kneel on the seat.
• Never use an infant carrier or
child safety seat that "hooks"
over a seatback; it may not provide adequate security in an accident.
• Never allow a child to be held in a
person's arms while they are in a
moving vehicle, as this could
result in serious injury to the
child in the event of an accident
or a sudden stop. Holding a child
in a moving vehicle does not provide the child with any means of
protection during an accident,
even if the person holding the
child is wearing a seat belt.
Knowing your vehicle
Installing a child restraint system
For safety reasons, we recommend that
the child restraint system be used in the
rear seats. Never place a rear-facing
child restraint in the front passenger
seat, because of the danger that an
inflating passenger side air bag could
impact the rear-facing child restraint
and kill the child.
Since all passenger’s (except driver’s)
safety belts move freely under normal
conditions and only lock under extreme
or emergency conditions (emergency
lock mode), you must manually change
these safety belts to the auto lock mode
to secure a child restraint.
✽ NOTICE
WARNING
• Before installing the child
restraint system, read the instructions supplied by the child
restraint system manufacturer.
• If the seat belt does not operate
as described, have the system
checked immediately by your
authorized Kia dealer.
• Failure to observe this manual
instructions regarding child
restraint system and the instructions provided with the child
restraint system could increase
the chance and/or severity of
injury in an accident.
WARNING
• Do not install any child restraint
system in the front passenger
seat. Should an accident occur
and cause the passenger air bag
to deploy, it could severely injure
or kill an infant or child seated in
an infant or child seat. Therefore,
only use a child restraint system
in the rear seat of your vehicle.
• If the child restraint seat is not
anchored properly, the risk of a
child being seriously injured or
killed in a collision greatly
increases.
The driver’s safety belt incorporates the
emergency lock mode only.
3 45
Knowing your vehicle
Placing a passenger safety belt
into the auto lock mode
The use of the auto lock mode will
ensure that the normal movement of the
child in the vehicle does not cause the
safety belt to be pulled out and loosen
the firmness of its hold on the child
restraint system. To secure a child
restraint system, use the following procedure.
E2MS103005
Installing a child restraint system by
lap/shoulder belt
To install a child restraint system on the
outboard or center rear seats, do the following:
1. Place the child restraint system in the
seat and route the lap/shoulder belt
around or through the restraint, following the restraint manufacturer’s
instructions. Be sure the safety belt
webbing is not twisted.

3. Pull the shoulder portion of the safety
belt all the way out. When the shoulder
portion of the safety belt is fully
extended, it will shift the retractor to
the “Auto Lock” (child restraint) mode.
4. Slowly allow the shoulder portion of
the safety belt to retract and listen for
an audible “clicking” or “ratcheting”
sound. This indicates that the retractor
is in the “Auto Lock” mode. If no distinct
sound is heard, repeat steps 3 and 4.
5. Remove as much slack from the belt
as possible by pushing down on the
child restraint system while feeding the
shoulder belt back into the retractor.
6. Push and pull on the child restraint
system to confirm that the safety belt is
holding it firmly in place. If it is not,
release the safety belt and repeat
steps 2 through 6.
7. Double check that the retractor is in
the “Auto Lock” mode by attempting to
pull more of the safety belt out of the
retractor. If you cannot, the retractor is
in the “Auto Lock” mode.
To remove the child restraint, press the
release button on the buckle and then
pull the lap/shoulder belt out of the
restraint and allow the safety belt to
retract fully.
3 47
Knowing your vehicle
WARNING - Auto lock
mode
The lap/shoulder belt automatically
returns to the “emergency lock
mode” whenever the belt is allowed
to retract fully. Therefore, the preceding seven steps must be followed each time a child restraint is
installed.
If the safety belt is not placed in the
“auto lock” mode, severe injury or
death could occur to the child
and/or other occupants in the vehicle in a collision, since the child
restraint will not be effectively held
in place.
✽ NOTICE
When the safety belt is allowed to
retract to its fully stowed position, the
retractor will automatically switch from
the “Auto Lock” mode to the emergency
lock mode for normal adult usage.

Securing a child restraint seat with
“Tether Anchor” system
Child restraint hook holders are located
on the shelf behind the rear seats.
1. Open the tether anchor cover on the
shelf behind the rear seats.
2. Route the child restraint seat strap
over the seatback.
For vehicles with adjustable headrest,
route the tether strap under the headrest and between the headrest posts,
otherwise route the tether strap over
the top of the seatback.
3. Connect the tether strap hook to the
correct child restraint hook holder and
tighten to secure the seat.
Knowing your vehicle
WARNING - Tether strap
If the tether strap is secured incorrectly, the child restraint seat may
not be restrained properly in the
event of a collision. Do not mount
more than one child restraint seat
to a tether anchorage, since the
anchorage can then fail in a collision.
WARNING - Child restraint
Check that the child restraint system is secure by pushing and
pulling it in different directions.
Incorrectly fitted child restraints
may swing, twist, tip or come away
causing death or injury.
WARNING - Child restraint
anchorage
• Child restraint anchorages are
designed to withstand only those
loads imposed by correctly fitted
child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for
adult seat belts or harnesses or
for attaching other items or
equipment to the vehicle.
• The tether strap may not work
properly if attached somewhere
other than the correct tether
anchor.

Child seat lower anchors
Some child seat manufacturers make
child restraint seats that are labeled as
LATCH or LATCH compatible. LATCH
stands for “Lower Anchors and Tethers
for Children”. These seats include two
rigid or webbing mounted attachments
that connect to two lower anchors and a
tether anchors at specific seating positions in your vehicle. This type of child
restraint seat eliminates the need to use
seat belts to attach the child seat in the
rear seats.

2GHA2127/SBGQ03102
There is a child restraint symbol located
on the lower portion of each side of the
rear seatbacks. These symbols indicate
the position of the lower anchors for child
restraints so equipped.
LATCH anchors have been provided in
your vehicle. The LATCH anchors are
located in the left and right outboard rear
seating positions. Their locations are
shown in the illustration. There is no
LATCH anchor provided for the center
rear seating position.
The LATCH anchors are located between
the seatback and the seat cushion of the
rear seat left and right outboard seating
positions.
3 50
Follow the child seat manufacturer’s
instructions to properly install child
restraint seats with LATCH or LATCHcompatible attachments.
Once you have installed the LATCH child
restraint, assure that the seat is properly
attached to the LATCH and tether
anchors. Also, test the child restraint seat
before you place the child in it. Tilt the
seat from side to side. Also try to tug the
seat forward. Check to see if the anchors
hold the seat in place.
Knowing your vehicle
WARNING
When using the vehicle’s “LATCH”
system to install a child restraint
system in the rear seat, all unused
vehicle rear seat belt metal latch
plates or tabs must be latched
securely in their seat belt buckles
and the seat belt webbing must be
retracted behind the child restraint
to prevent the child from reaching
and taking hold of unretracted seat
belts. Unlatched metal latch plates
or tabs may allow the child to reach
the unretracted seat belts which
may result in strangulation and a
serious injury or death to the child
in the child restraint.
WARNING
If the child restraint is not anchored
properly, the risk of a child being
seriously injured or killed in a collision greatly increases.
WARNING
• Do not mount more than one
child restraint to a single tether or
to a child restraint lower anchorage
point.
The
improper
increased load may cause the
anchorage points or tether
anchor to break, causing serious
injury or death.
• Do not install a child restraint
seat at the rear center seating
position using the vehicle’s
LATCH anchors. The LATCH
anchors are only provided for the
left and right outboard rear seating positions. Do not misuse the
LATCH anchors by attempting to
attach a child restraint seat in the
middle rear seating position to
the LATCH anchors.
In a crash, the child restraint seat
LATCH attachments may not be
strong enough to secure the child
restraint seat improperly in the
rear center seating position and
may break, causing serious injury
or death.
(Continued)

Knowing your vehicle
What your air bag system does
Driver’s air bag and front passenger’s air
bag are designed to supplement the protection offered by the safety belt in certain frontal collisions. Likewise, side air
bag and curtain air bags are designed to
supplement the protection offered by the
safety belt in side collisions. Safety belts
are designed to reduce the injury of the
driver or passengers in case of impact or
collision. No safety belt or air bag system
can completely eliminate injuries that
may be caused in collisions or impacts.
To help reduce impact on driver or passengers in any collision, safety belts
must be correctly worn.
What your air bag system does
not do
The importance of using
safety belts
The air bag system is designed to supplement the protection offered by the
safety belt system. IT IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE SAFETY BELT.
There are four very important reasons to
use safety belts even with an air bag
supplemental restraint system. They:
• help keep you in the proper position
(away from the air bag) when it inflates.
• reduce the risk of harm in rollover, side
impact (vehicles not equipped with
side and curtain air bags) or rear
impact collisions, because an air bag is
not designed to inflate in such situations and even a side curtain air bag is
designed to inflate only in certain side
impact collisions.
• reduce the risk of harm in frontal or
side collisions which are not severe
enough to actuate the air bag supplemental restraint system.
• reduce the risk of being ejected from
your vehicle.
3 53
Knowing your vehicle
✽ NOTICE
Your vehicle’s Supplemental Restraint
System Control Module is equipped
with a recording device that may record
the use or status of the safety belt
restraint system by the driver and front
passenger in certain collisions.
3 54
WARNING - Air bags &
safety belts
• Even in vehicles with air bags,
you and your passengers must
always wear the safety belts provided in order to minimize the risk
and severity of injury in the event
of a collision or rollover.
• Always wear your safety belt. It
can help keep you away from the
air bags during heavy braking
just before a collision.
• If occupants are not wearing safety belts or correctly seated, they
cannot be protected, and thus
face serious injury or death.
(Continued)
(Continued)
• Driver’s and front passenger’s air
bags are designed to inflate only
in certain frontal collision, and
side and curtain air bags are
designed to inflate in certain side
impacts. Frontal air bags will generally not provide protection in
side impacts (vehicles not
equipped with side and curtain air
bags) or rear impacts, rollovers,
less severe frontal collisions.
They will not provide protection
from later impacts in a multiimpact collision.
(Continued)
Knowing your vehicle
(Continued)
• If your vehicle has been subjected to flood conditions (e.g.
soaked carpeting/standing water
on the floor of the vehicle, etc.) or
if your vehicle has become flood
damaged in any way, do not
attempt to start the vehicle or put
the key in the ignition before disconnecting the battery.
Disregarding this precaution may
cause air bag deployment, which
could result in serious personal
injury or death. If your vehicle is
subjected to flooded conditions,
before starting the vehicle, have
the vehicle towed to an authorized Kia dealer for inspection and
necessary repairs.
Air bag system components
• The SRS air bag consists of the following components;
1. Driver's air bag module
2. Passenger's air bag module
3. Side air bag module
4. Curtain air bag module
5. Front impact sensors
6. Side impact sensors
7. SRS air bag control module
8. Driver's seat position sensor
9. Occupant Classification System
(Front passenger's seat only)
10. "PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF"
indicator (Front passenger's seat
only)
11. Driver's and front passenger's
safety belt buckle sensors
12. Retractor Pre-tensioner
Assemblies
13. SRS "AIR BAG" warning light
• A diagnostic system that continually
monitors the system operation.
• An indicator light to warn you of a possible problem with the system.
• Emergency power backup in case your
car’s electrical system is disconnected
in a crash.
The SRS uses a collection of sensors to
gather information about the driver’s seat
position, the driver’s and front passenger’s safety belt usage and impact severity.
The driver’s seat position sensor, which
is installed on the seat track, determines
if the seat is fore or aft of a reference
position. Similarly, the safety belt usage
sensors determine if the driver and front
passenger’s safety belts are fastened.
These sensors provide the ability to control the SRS deployment based on how
close the driver’s seat is to the steering
wheel, how close the passenger’s seat is
to the instrument panel, whether or not
the safety belts are fastened, and the
severity of the impact.
3 55
Knowing your vehicle
The advanced SRS offers the ability to
control the air bag inflation with two levels. A first stage level is provided for
moderate-severity impacts. A second
stage level is provided for more severe
impacts.
According to the impact severity, seating
position (only driver) and safety belt
usage, the SRSCM (SRS Control
Module) controls the air bag inflation.
Failure to properly wear safety belts
can increase the risk or severity of
injury in an accident.
Additionally, your SRS is equipped with
an occupant classification system in the
front passenger’s seat. The occupant
classification system detects the presence of a passenger in the front passenger’s seat and will turn off the front passenger’s air bag under certain conditions.
For more detail, see “Occupant
Classification System” later in this section.
3 56
CAUTION
If the seat position sensor is not
working properly, the SRS air bag
AIR
warning light ( BAG
) on the instrument panel will illuminate even if
there is no malfunction of the SRS
air bag system, because the SRS air
bag warning light is connected with
the seat position sensor. If the SRS
air bag warning light does not illuminate when the ignition key is
turned to the "ON" position, if it
remains illuminated after blinking
for approximately 6 seconds, or if it
illuminates while the vehicle is
being driven, have an authorized
Kia dealer inspect the seat position
sensor and the advanced SRS air
bag system as soon as possible.
WARNING
• Modification to the seat structure
can adversely affect the seat
position sensor and cause the air
bag to deploy at a different level
than should be provided.
• Failure to properly wear safety
belts can increase the risk or
severity of injury by causing the
air bags to deploy at a different
level than should be provided.
• Do not place any objects underneath the driver’s seats which
could damage the seat position
sensor.
• Do not place any objects that may
cause magnetic fields near the
front seat. These may cause a
malfunction of the seat position
sensor.

Knowing your vehicle
The location of OCS warning indicator
OGH036367N
If there is no passenger in the front passenger seat or if the passenger in the
front passenger's seat is very small,
(such as a child), the front PASSENGER
AIR BAG OFF indicator may go ON.
When this indicator is ON, the front passenger's air bag will not deploy.
The front passenger’s side air bag will
not deploy if the front seat is unoccupied.
The front passenger’s side air bag may
deploy if the front seat is occupied by a
small occupant.
Always be sure that you and all vehicle
occupants are seated and restrained
properly (sitting upright with the seat in
an upright position, centered on the seat
cushion, with the person's legs comfortably extended, feet on the floor, and
wearing the safety belt properly) for the
most effective protection by the air bag
and the safety belt.
• The OCS may not function properly if
the passenger takes actions which can
defeat the detection system. These
include:
(1) Failing to sit in an upright position.
(2) Leaning against the door or center
console.
(3) Sitting towards the sides or the front
of the seat.
(4) Putting legs on the dashboard or resting them on other locations which
reduce the passenger weight on the
front seat.
(5) Improperly wearing the safety belt.
(6) Reclining the seat back.
• The "PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF"
indicator illuminates after the ignition
key is turned to the "ON" position or
after the engine is started. If the front
passenger seat is unoccupied or is
occupied by very small person, or is
occupied by someone who is improperly seated, the "PASSENGER AIR
BAG OFF" indicator will remain illuminated. If the front passenger seat is
occupied by someone of adult size and
body shape, the "PASSENGER AIR
BAG OFF" indicator will turn off after 6
seconds.
• If the "PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF"
indicator illuminates, the front passenger's air bag will not deploy.
The front passenger’s side air bag will
not deploy if the front seat is unoccupied.
The front passenger’s side air bag may
deploy if the front seat is occupied by a
small occupant.
• If the "PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF"

• Do not place sharp objects on the
front passenger seat. These can
damage the occupant classification system, if they puncture the
seat cushion.
• Do not install accessory seat covers on the front seats, since these
will interfere with proper sensor
operation.
✽ NOTICE
• If luggage or other objects are placed
on the front passenger's seat or if the
temperature of the seat changes while
the seat is unoccupied, the "PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF" indicator may
blink. These conditions do not indicate a problem.
• Do not put heavy objects on the front
passenger's seat. This may cause front
passenger air bag deployment in the
event of an accident, thus increasing
your repair costs.
WARNING
• The front seat passenger air bag
is much larger than the steering
wheel air bag and inflates with
considerably more force. It can
seriously hurt or kill a passenger
who is not in the proper position
and wearing the safety belt properly. The front passengers should
always move their seats as far
back as practical and sit back in
their seats.
• It is essential that the front passenger always wears their safety
belts, even when the vehicle is
moving in a parking lot or up a
driveway into garage.
• If the driver brakes the vehicle
heavily prior to an impact, unbelted occupants will be thrown forward. If the front passenger is not
wearing a safety belt, he/she will
be directly in front of the storage
compartment when deployment
occurs. In that situation, serious
injury or death is possible.

Air bag inflation condition
Front air bag
Front air bags (driver’s and front passenger’s air bags) are designed to inflate
when the impact is delivered to front collision sensors depending on the intensity,
speed or angles of impact of the front
collision.
3 67
Knowing your vehicle
AIR19B
2GHA2125A
Side air bag (if equipped)
Side air bags (side and/or curtain air
bags) are designed to inflate when an
impact is detected by side collision sensors depending on the strength, speed or
angles of impact, collision or rollover.
3 68
Although the front air bags (driver’s and
front passenger’s air bags) are designed
to inflate only in frontal collision, it may
inflate in any collision if front impact sensors detect a sufficient impact. Side air
bags (side and/or curtain air bags) are
designed to inflate only in side impact
collision, it may inflate in any collision if
side impact sensors detect a sufficient
impact.
If the vehicle chassis is impacted by
bumps or objects on unimproved roads
or sidewalks, air bags may deploy. Drive
carefully on unimproved roads or on surfaces not designed for vehicle traffic to
prevent unintended air bag deployment.
To protect occupants, front air bags or
pre-tensioner seat belts may deploy in
certain side impact collisions.
1GHA2272
Air bag non-inflation conditions
• In certain low-speed collisions the air
bags may not deploy. The air bags are
designed not to deploy in such cases
because the risk of injuries which can
be caused by the air bags exceeds the
benefits they provide in protecting
occupants.
Knowing your vehicle
1GHA2273
AIR19A
1GHA2270
• Frontal air bags are not designed to
inflate in rear collisions, because occupants are moved backward by the
force of the impact. In this case, the air
bags do not provide proper protection.
• Front air bags may not inflate in side
impact collision, because occupants
move to the direction of the collision,
and thus in side impacts, frontal air bag
deployment does not provide occupant
protection.
However, side or curtain air bags may
inflate depending on the intensity, vehicle speed and angles of impact.
• In a slant or angled collision, the force
of impact may direct the occupants in a
direction between the front and side air
bags, and thus the sensors may not
deploy any air bags.
3 69
Knowing your vehicle
1GHA2274
AIR21
1GHA2275
• Just before impact, drivers often brake
heavily. Such heavy braking lowers the
front portion of the vehicle causing it to
“ride” under a vehicle with a higher
ground clearance. Air bags may not
inflate in this "under-ride" situation
because deceleration forces that are
detected by sensors may be significantly altered by such “under-ride” collisions.
• Air bags may not inflate in rollover accidents because air bag deployment
would not provide proper protection to
the occupants.
However, side air bags may inflate
when the vehicle is rolled over by a
side impact collision, if the vehicle is
equipped with side air bags and curtain air bags.
• Air bags may not inflate if the vehicle
collides with objects such as utility
poles or trees, where the point of
impact is concentrated to one area and
the full force of the impact is not adequately delivered to the sensors.
3 70
Knowing your vehicle
How does the air bag system
operate
• Air bag only operates when the ignition
switch is turned to the ON or START
positions.
• Air bags inflate instantly in the event of
serious frontal or side collision (if
equipped with side air bag or curtain
air bag) in order to help protect the
occupants from serious physical injury.
• There is no single speed at which the
air bags will inflate.
Generally, air bags are designed to
inflate by the severity of a collision and
its direction. These two factors determine whether the sensors send out an
electronic deployment/inflation signal.
• Air bag deployment depends on a
number of factors including vehicle
speed, angles of impact and the density and stiffness of the vehicles or
objects which your vehicle hits in the
collision. However, factors are not limited to those mentioned above.
• The front air bags will completely
inflate and deflate in an instant.
It is virtually impossible for you to see
the air bags inflate during an accident.
It is much more likely that you will simply see the deflated air bags hanging
out of their storage compartments after
the collision.
• In order to help provide protection in a
severe collision, the air bags must
inflate rapidly. The speed of air bag
inflation is a consequence of the
extremely short time in which a collision
occurs and the need to get the air bag
between the occupant and the vehicle
structures before the occupant impacts
those structures. This speed of inflation
reduces the risk of serious or lifethreatening injuries in a severe collision
and is thus a necessary part of air bag
design.
However, air bag inflation can also
cause injuries which normally can
include facial abrasions, bruises and
broken bones, and sometimes more
serious injuries because that inflation
speed also causes the air bags to
expand with a great deal force.
• There are even circumstances
under which contact with the steering wheel air bag can cause fatal
injuries, especially if the occupant
is positioned excessively close to
the steering wheel.
3 71
Knowing your vehicle
WARNING - Seated
positioning
• Driver should sit as far back (at
least 250 mm (10 inches)) away
from the steering wheel air bag as
possible to reduce the risk of
injury or death in a collision. The
front passenger should always
move their seat as far back as
possible and sit back in their
seat.
• In the event of a collision the air
bags inflate instantly. Passengers
may be injured by the air bag
expansion force if they are not in
proper position.
• Air bag inflation may cause
injuries which normally include
facial or bodily abrasions, injuries
by the broken glasses or burns by
the explosives.
3 72
Noise and smoke
When the air bags inflate, they make a
loud noise and they leave smoke and
powder in the air inside of the vehicle.
This is normal and is a result of the ignition of the air bag inflator. After the air
bag inflates, you may feel substantial discomfort in breathing due to the contact of
your chest to both the safety belt and the
air bag, as well as from breathing the
smoke and powder. We strongly urge
you to open your doors and/or windows as soon as possible after impact
in order to reduce discomfort and prevent prolonged exposure to the
smoke and powder.
Though smoke and powder are nontoxic, it may cause irritation to the skin
(eyes, nose and throat, etc). If this is the
case, wash and rinse with the cold water
immediately and consult the doctor if the
symptom persists.
WARNING
When the air bags deploy, the air
bag related parts in steering wheel
and/or instrument panel and/or in
both sides of the roof rails above
the front and rear doors are very
hot. To prevent injury, do not touch
the air bag storage areas internal
components immediately after an
air bag has inflated.

WARNING
ADAIRBAG
Installing a child restraint on a
front passenger’s seat is forbidden.
Never place a rear-facing child restraint
in the front passenger’s seat. If the air
bag deploys, it would impact the rear-facing child restraint, causing serious or
fatal injury.
In addition, do not place front-facing
child restraint in the front passenger’s
seat either. If the front passenger air bag
inflates, it would cause serious or fatal
injuries to the improperly positioned or
improperly restrained child.
• Never put child restraint in the
front passenger’s seat. If the front
passenger air bag inflates, it
would cause serious or fatal
injuries.
• When children are seated in the
rear outboard seats in which side
air bags are equipped, be sure to
put the child restraint system as

another metal part of the front of
the vehicle, a safe distance away
from the fuel filler neck, nozzle, or
other gas source.
(Continued)
3 82
(Continued)
• Do not get back into a vehicle
once you have begun refueling.
Do not touch, rub or slide against
any item or fabric (polyester,
satin, nylon, etc.) capable of producing static electricity. Static
electricity discharge can ignite
fuel vapors resulting in explosion. If you must re-enter the
vehicle, you should once again
eliminate potentially dangerous
static electricity discharge by
touching a metal part of the vehicle, away from the fuel filler neck,
nozzle or other gasoline source.
• When using a portable fuel container be sure to place the container on the ground prior to refueling.
Static electricity discharge from
the container can ignite fuel vapors
causing a fire. Once refueling has
begun, contact with the vehicle
should be maintained until the filling is complete. Use only portable
fuel containers designed to carry
and store gasoline.
(Continued)
(Continued)
• Do not use cellular phones
around a gas station or while
refueling any vehicle. Electric
current and/or electronic interference from cellular phones can
potentially ignite fuel vapors
causing a fire. If you must use
your cellular phone use it in a
place away from the gas station.
• When refueling always shut the
engine off. Sparks produced by
electrical components related to
the engine can ignite fuel vapors
causing a fire. Always insure that
the engine is OFF before and during refueling. Once refueling is
complete, check to make sure the
fuel filler cap and door are
securely closed, before starting
the engine.
(Continued)
Knowing your vehicle
(Continued)
• Do not light any fire around a gas
station. DO NOT use matches or a
lighter and DO NOT SMOKE or
leave a lit cigarette in your vehicle
while at a gas station especially
during refueling. Automotive fuel
is highly flammable and can,
when ignited, result in explosion
by flames.
• If a fire breaks out during refueling, leave the vicinity of the vehicle, and immediately contact the
manager of the gas station or
contact the police and local fire
department. Follow any safety
instructions they provide.
CAUTION
• Make sure to refuel with gasoline
(unleaded fuel) only for the gasoline engine vehicles.
• Check to make sure the fuel filler
cap is securely closed after refueling.
• If the fuel filler cap requires
replacement, use only a genuine
Kia cap or the equivalent specified for your vehicle. An incorrect
fuel filler cap can result in a serious malfunction of the fuel system or emission control system.
Correct replacement caps are
available at authorized Kia dealers.
• Do not spill fuel on the exterior
surfaces of the vehicle. Any type
of fuel spilled on painted surfaces
may damage the paint.
• A loose fuel filler cap may cause
the “Check Engine” (Malfunction
Indicator) light in the instrument
panel to illuminate unnecessarily.
• If the fuel filler lid will not open in

¢ ¢ ¢

JBM001
How car audio works
AM and FM radio signals are broadcast
from transmitter towers located around
your city. They are intercepted by the
radio antenna on your car. This signal is
then received by the radio and sent to
your car speakers.
When a strong radio signal has reached
your vehicle, the precise engineering of
your audio system ensures the best possible quality reproduction. However, in
some cases the signal coming to your
vehicle may not be strong and clear. This
can be due to factors such as the distance from the radio station, closeness of
other strong radio stations or the presence of buildings, bridges or other large
obstructions in the area.
3 100
¢ ¢¢
JBM002
JBM003
AM broadcasts can be received at
greater distances than FM broadcasts.
This is because AM radio waves are
transmitted at low frequencies. These
long, low frequency radio waves can follow the curvature of the earth rather than
travelling straight out into the atmosphere. In addition, they curve around
obstructions so that they can provide better signal coverage.
FM broadcasts are transmitted at high
frequencies and do not bend to follow the
earth's surface. Because of this, FM
broadcasts generally begin to fade at
short distances from the station. Also,
FM signals are easily affected by buildings, mountains, or other obstructions.
These can result in certain listening conditions which might lead you to believe a
problem exists with your radio. The following conditions are normal and do not
indicate radio trouble:
Knowing your vehicle
Using a cellular phone or a twoway radio
When a cellular phone is used inside the
vehicle, noise may be produced from the
audio equipment. This does not mean
that something is wrong with the audio
equipment. In such a case, use the cellular phone at a place as far as possible
from the audio equipment.
¢ ¢¢
CAUTION
JBM004
JBM005
• Fading - As your car moves away from
the radio station, the signal will weaken
and sound will begin to fade. When this
occurs, we suggest that you select
another stronger station.
• Flutter/Static - Weak FM signals or
large obstructions between the transmitter and your radio can disturb the
signal causing static or fluttering noises to occur. Reducing the treble level
may lessen this effect until the disturbance clears.
• Station Swapping - As a FM signal
weakens, another more powerful signal near the same frequency may
begin to play. This is because your
radio is designed to lock onto the clearest signal. If this occurs, select another station with a stronger signal.
• Multi-Path Cancellation - Radio signals
being received from several directions
can cause distortion or fluttering. This
can be caused by a direct and reflected signal from the same station, or by
signals from two stations with close
frequencies. If this occurs, select
another station until the condition has
passed.
When using a communication system such a cellular phone or a radio
set inside the vehicle, a separate
external antenna must be fitted.
When a cellular phone or a radio set
is used with an internal antenna
alone, it may interfere with the vehicle's electrical system and adversely affect safe operation of the vehicle.
WARNING
Don’t use a cellular phone when
you are driving. The driver should
stop at a safe place to use a cellular
phone.

Care of cassette tapes
(if equipped)
• Because the thickness of a cassette
tape with the total playback time of
over 60 minutes (C-60) are too thin, we
suggest that you do not use any of
them to avoid having tapes being tangled.
• To achieve better sound quality, periodically clean the tape head using a cotton stick with colorless alcohol (once
per month).
• If a tape is too loose, fasten it to reel by
winding with objects like a pencil.
• Because dust or foreign objects on a
cassette tape may damage the playback head, always store tapes in their
cases when not in use.
• Make sure cassette tapes are kept
away from magnetic devices (TV,
stereo system, etc) in order to achieve
better sound quality.
• Be certain that no objects or substances other than cassette tapes are
inserted into the cassette tape player.
• Because tape media can be distorted
when exposed to direct sunlight, Do
not leave cassette tapes on the seats,
dashboard or near the back windshield.
3 102
Care of disc (if equipped)
• If the temperature inside the car is too
high, open the car windows for ventilation
before using your car audio.
• Do not apply volatile agents such as
benzene and thinner, normal cleaners
and magnetic sprays made for analogue disc onto CDs.
• To prevent the disc surface from getting damaged. Hold and carry CDs by
the edges or the edges of the center
hole only.
• Clean the disc surface with a piece of soft
cloth before playback (wipe it from the
center to the outside edge.)
• Do not damage the disc surface or
attach pieces of sticky tape or paper
onto it.
• Make sure on undesirable matter other
than CDs are inserted into the CD
player (Do not insert more than one
CD at a time).
• Keep CDs in their cases after use to
protect them from scratches or dirt.
• Depending on the type of CD-R/CDRW CDs, certain CDs may not operate
normally according to manufacturing
companies or making and recording
methods. In such circumstances, if you
still continue to use those CDs, they
may cause the malfunction of your car
audio system.

BRAKE SYSTEM
Power brakes
In the event of brake failure
Your vehicle has power-assisted brakes
that adjust automatically through normal
usage.
In the event that the power-assisted
brakes lose power because of a stalled
engine or some other reason, you can
still stop your vehicle by applying greater
force to the brake pedal than you normally would. The stopping distance, however, will be longer.
When the engine is not running, the
reserve brake power is partially depleted
each time the brake pedal is applied. Do
not pump the brake pedal when the
power assist has been interrupted.
If service brakes fail to operate while the
vehicle is in motion, you can make an
emergency stop with the parking brake.
The stopping distance, however, will be
much greater than normal.
4 10
WARNING - Parking brake
Depressing the parking brake while
the vehicle is moving at normal
speeds can cause a sudden loss of
control of the vehicle. If you must
use the parking brake to stop the
vehicle, use great caution in applying the brake.
WARNING - Brakes
• Do not drive with your foot resting on the brake pedal. This will
create abnormal high brake temperatures, excessive brake lining
and pad wear, and increased
stopping distances.
• When descending a long or steep
hill, shift to a lower gear and
avoid continuous application of
the brakes. Continuous brake
application will cause the brakes
to overheat and could result in a
temporary loss of braking performance.
(Continued)
Driving your vehicle
(Continued)
• Wet brakes may result in the vehicle not to slow down at the usual
rate and make it pull to one side
when the brakes are applied.
Applying the brakes lightly will
indicate whether they have been
affected in this way. Always test
your brakes in this fashion after
driving through deep water. To
dry the brakes, apply them lightly
while maintaining a safe forward
speed until brake performance
returns to normal.
Disc brakes wear indicator
✽ NOTICE
Your vehicle has disc brakes.
When your brake pads are worn and it's
time for new pads, you will hear a highpitched warning sound from your front
brakes or rear brakes. You may hear this
sound come and go or it may occur
whenever you depress the brake pedal.
Please remember that some driving conditions or climates may cause a brake
squeal when you first apply (or lightly
apply) the brakes. This is normal and
does not indicate a problem with your
brakes.
To avoid costly brake repairs, do not
continue to drive with worn brake pads.
WARNING - Brake wear
This brake wear warning sound
means your vehicle needs service.
If you ignore this audible warning,
you will eventually lose braking performance, which could lead to a
serious accident.
CAUTION
Always replace brake pads as complete front or rear axle sets.

Parking on curbed streets
• When parking your vehicle on an uphill
grade, park as close to the curb as
possible and turn the front wheels
away from the curb so that the front
wheels will contact the curb if the vehicle moves backward.
• When parking your vehicle on a downhill grade, park as close to the curb as
possible and turn the front wheels
toward the curb so that the front
wheels will contact the curb if the vehicle moves forward.
Driving your vehicle
Anti-lock brake system (ABS)
WARNING - ABS Brakes
Your ABS is not a substitute for
good driving judgement. You can
still have an accident. In fact, your
ABS system will probably not be
able to prevent an accident in the
following driving conditions:
• Dangerous driving, such as
neglecting safety precautions,
speeding, or driving too close to
the vehicle in front of you.
• Driving at high speed in situations providing considerably less
traction, such as wet conditions
where hydroplaning could occur.
• Driving too fast on poor road surfaces. The ABS is designed to
improve maximum braking effectiveness on typical highways and
roads in good condition. On poor
road surfaces in poor condition,
the ABS may actually reduce
braking effectiveness.
The ABS system continuously senses
the speed of the wheels. If the wheels are
going to lock, the ABS system repeatedly modulates the hydraulic brake pressure to the wheels.
When you apply your brakes under conditions which may lock the wheels, you
may hear a “tik-tik’’ sound from the
brakes, or feel a corresponding sensation
in the brake pedal. This is normal and it
means your ABS system is active.
In order to obtain the maximum benefit
from your ABS system in an emergency
situation, do not attempt to modulate
your brake pressure and do not try to
pump your brakes. Press your brake
pedal as hard as possible or as hard as
the situation warrants and allow the ABS
system to control the force being delivered to the brakes.
• Even with the anti-lock brake system,
your vehicle still requires sufficient
stopping distance. Always maintain a
safe distance from the vehicle in front
of you.
• Always slow down when cornering.
The anti-lock brake system cannot prevent accidents resulting from excessive speeds.
• On loose or uneven road surfaces,
operation of the anti-lock brake system
may result in a longer stopping distance than for vehicles equipped with a
conventional brake system.

ABS
W-78
✽ NOTICE
• If the ABS warning light is on and
stays on, you may have a problem
with the ABS system. In this case,
however, your regular brakes will
work normally.
• The ABS warning light will stay on for
approximately 3 seconds after the
ignition switch is ON. During that
time, the ABS will go through selfdiagnosis and the light will go off if
everything is normal. If the light stays
on, you may have a problem with your
ABS system. Contact an authorized
Kia dealer as soon as possible.
4 16
• When you drive on a road having
poor traction, such as an icy road, and
operate your brakes continuously, the
ABS will be active continuously and
the ABS warning light may illuminate.
Pull your car over to a safe place and
stop the engine.
• Restart the engine. If the ABS warning light is off, then your ABS system
is normal. Otherwise, you may have a
problem with the ABS. Contact an
authorized Kia dealer as soon as possible.
✽ NOTICE
When you jump start your vehicle
because of a drained battery, the engine
may not run as smoothly and the ABS
warning light may turn on at the same
time. This happens because of the low
battery voltage. It does not mean your
ABS is malfunctioning.
• Do not pump your brakes!
• Have the battery recharged before
driving the vehicle.

STEERING WHEEL
Power steering
✽ NOTICE
✽ NOTICE
Power Steering uses energy from the
engine to assist you in steering the vehicle. If the engine is off or if the power
steering system becomes inoperative,
the vehicle may still be steered, but it will
require increased steering effort.
Should you notice any change in the
effort required to steer during normal
vehicle operation, have the power steering checked by an Authorized Kia Dealer.
• Never hold the steering wheel against
a stop (extreme right or left turn) for
more than 5 seconds with the engine
running. Holding the steering wheel
for more than 5 seconds in either position may cause damage to the power
steering pump.
• If the power steering drive belt breaks
or if the power steering pump malfunctions, the steering effort will
greatly increase.
If the vehicle is parked for extended
periods outside in cold weather (below 10 °C/14 °F), the power steering may
require increased effort when the engine
is first started. This is caused by
increased fluid viscosity due to the cold
weather and does not indicate a malfunction.
When this happens, increase the engine
RPM by depressing the accelerator until
the RPM reaches 1,500 rpm then release
or let the engine idle for two or three
minutes to warm up the fluid.

Air conditioning system operation tips
• If the vehicle has been parked in direct
sunlight during hot weather, open the
windows for a short time to let the hot
air inside the vehicle escape.
• To help reduce moisture inside of the
windows on rainy humid days,
decrease the humidity inside the vehicle by operating the air conditioning
system.
• During air conditioning system operation, you may occasionally notice a
slight change in the engine speed as
the air conditioning compressor cycles
on. This is a normal system operation
characteristics.
• Use the air conditioning system every
month only for a few minutes to ensure
maximum system performance.
• When using the air conditioning system, you may notice clear water dripping (or even pudding) on the ground
under the passenger side of the vehicle. This is a normal system operation
characteristics.
• Operating the air conditioning system
in the recirculated air position does
provide maximum cooling, however,
continual operation in this mode may
cause the air inside the vehicle to
become stale.
CAUTION
When using the air conditioning
system, monitor the temperature
gauge closely while driving up hills
or in heavy traffic when outside
temperatures are high. Air conditioning system operation may
cause
engine
overheating.
Continue to use the blower fan but
turn the air conditioning system off
if the temperature gauge indicates
engine overheating.
Checking the amount of air conditioner refrigerant and compressor lubricant
When the amount of refrigerant is low,
the performance of the air conditioning is
reduced. Overfilling also has a bad influence on the air conditioning system.
Therefore, if abnormal operation is
found, have the system inspected by an
authorized Kia dealer.
WARNING
The air conditioning system should
be serviced by an authorized Kia
dealer. Improper service may cause
serious injury to the person performing the service.
CAUTION
When the performance of the air
conditioning system is reduced it is
important that the correct type and
amount of oil and refrigerant is
used. Otherwise, damage to the
compressor and abnormal system
operation may occur.

other exhaust fumes. Therefore, if you
smell exhaust fumes of any kind inside
your vehicle, have it inspected and
repaired immediately by an authorized
Kia dealer or other competent repair
shop. If you ever suspect exhaust
fumes are coming into your vehicle,
drive it only with all the windows fully
open. Have your vehicle checked and
repaired immediately.
• Do not operate the engine in confined
or closed areas (such as garages) any
more than what is necessary to move
the vehicle in or out of the area.
• When the vehicle is stopped in an
open area for more than a short time
with the engine running, adjust the
ventilation system (as needed) to draw
outside air into the vehicle.
• Never sit in a parked or stopped vehicle for any extended time with the
engine running.
• When the engine stalls or fails to start,
excessive attempts to re-start the
engine may cause damage to the
emission control system.

Driving tips
Operating precautions for catalytic converters
WARNING - Fire
A hot exhaust system can ignite
flammable items under your vehicle. Do not park the vehicle over or
near flammable objects, such as
dry grass, paper, leaves, etc.
Your vehicle is equipped with a catalytic
converter emission control device.
Therefore, the following precautions
must be observed:
• Use only UNLEADED FUEL for gasoline engine (unleaded).
• Do not operate the vehicle when there
are signs of engine malfunction, such
as misfire or a noticeable loss of performance.
• Do not misuse or abuse the engine.
Examples of misuse are coasting with
the ignition off and descending steep
grades in gear with the ignition off.
5 4
• Avoid driving with a very low fuel level.
If your run out of gasoline, it could
cause the engine to misfire and result
in excessive loading of the catalytic
converter.
• Do not operate the engine at high idle
speed for extended periods (5 minutes
or more).
• Do not modify or tamper with any part
of the engine or emission control system. All inspections and adjustments
must be made by a qualified technician.
Failure to observe these precautions
could result in damage to the catalytic
converter and to your vehicle.
Additionally, such actions could void your
warranties.
Driving tips
BEFORE DRIVING
Before entering vehicle:
Before starting
• Be sure that all windows, outside mirror(s), and outside lights are clean.
• Check the condition of the tires.
• Check under the vehicle for any sign of
leaks.
• Be sure there are no obstacles behind
you if you intend to back up.
• Close and lock all doors.
• Position the seat so that all controls are
easily reached.
• Adjust the inside and outside rearview
mirrors.
• Be sure that all lights work.
• Check all gauges.
• Check the operation of warning lights
when the ignition switch is turned to
the ON position.
• Release the parking brake and make
sure the brake warning light goes out.
For safe operation, be sure you are familiar with your vehicle and its equipment.
Necessary inspections
Fluid levels, such as engine oil, engine
coolant, brake fluid, and washer fluid
should be checked on a regular basis,
with the exact interval depending on the
fluid. Further details are provided in
Section 7, Maintenance.
WARNING - Driving under
the influence of alcohol or
drugs
Drinking and driving is dangerous.
Drunk driving is the number one
contributor to the highway death
toll each year. Even a small amount
of alcohol will affect your reflexes,
perceptions and judgement.
You are much more likely to have a
serious accident if you drink and
drive.
If you are drinking or taking drugs,
don’t drive. Do not ride with a driver who has been drinking or taking
drugs. Choose a designated driver
or call a cab.
Driving while under the influence of
drugs is as dangerous or more dangerous than driving drunk.

Driving tips
SUGGESTIONS FOR ECONOMICAL OPERATION
Your vehicle's fuel economy depends
mainly on your style of driving, where you
drive and when you drive.
Each of these factors affects how many
kilometers (miles) you can get from a liter
(gallon) of fuel. To operate your vehicle
as economically as possible, use the following driving suggestions to help save
money in both fuel and repairs:
• Avoid lengthy warm-up idling. Once the
engine is running smoothly, begin driving. Remember, engine warm-up may
take a little longer on cold days.
• Save fuel by accelerating slowly after
stopping.
• Keep the engine in tune and follow the
recommended periodic maintenance
schedule. This will increase the life of
all parts and lower your operating
costs.
5 6
• Do not use the air conditioner unnecessarily.
• Slow down when driving on rough
roads.
• For longer tire life and better fuel economy, always keep the tires inflated to
the recommended pressures.
• Maintain a safe distance from other
vehicles to avoid sudden stops. This
will reduce wear on brake linings and
pads. Driving in such a way will also
save fuel because extra fuel is required
to accelerate back to driving speed.
• Do not carry unnecessary weight in the
vehicle.
• Do not rest your foot on the brake
pedal while driving. This can cause
needless wear, possible damage to the
brakes, and poor fuel economy.
• Improper wheel alignment results in
faster tire wear and lower fuel economy.
• Open windows at high speeds can
reduce fuel economy.
• Fuel economy is less in crosswinds
and headwinds. To help offset some of
this loss, slow down when driving in
these conditions.
Keeping a vehicle in good operating condition is important both for economy and
safety. Therefore, have an authorized Kia
dealer perform scheduled inspections
and maintenance.
WARNING - Engine off during motion
Never turn the engine off to coast
down hills or anytime the vehicle is
in motion. The power steering and
power brakes will not function without the engine running. Instead,
downshift to an appropriate gear for
engine braking effect.
Driving tips
SPECIAL DRIVING CONDITIONS
Hazardous driving conditions
When hazardous driving conditions are
encountered such as water, snow, ice,
mud, sand, or similar hazards, follow
these suggestions:
• Drive cautiously and allow extra distance for braking.
• Avoid sudden movements in braking or
steering.
• When braking, pump the brake pedal
with a light up-and-down motion until
the vehicle is stopped.
✽ NOTICE
Do not pump the brake pedal on a vehicle equipped with ABS.
• If stalled in snow, mud, or sand, use
second gear. Accelerate slowly to
avoid spinning the drive wheels.
• Use sand, rock salt, tire chains, or
other non-slip material under the drive
wheels to provide traction when stalled
in ice, snow, or mud.
WARNING - Downshifting
Downshifting with an automatic
transaxle, while driving on slippery
surfaces can cause an accident.
The sudden change in tire speed
could cause the tires to skid. Be
careful when downshifting on slippery surfaces.
Rocking the vehicle
If it is necessary to rock the vehicle to
free it from snow, sand, or mud, first turn
the steering wheel right and left to clear
the area around your front wheels. Then,
shift back and forth between R (Reverse)
and any forward gear in vehicles
equipped with an automatic transaxle. Do
not race the engine, and spin the wheels
as little as possible. If you are still stuck
after a few tries, have the vehicle pulled
out by a tow vehicle to avoid engine
overheating and possible damage to the
transaxle.
5 7
Driving tips
✽ NOTICE
Driving at night
Driving in the rain
Prolonged rocking may cause engine
over-heating, transaxle damage or failure, and tire damage.
Because night driving presents more
hazards than driving in the daylight, here
are some important tips to remember:
• Slow down and keep more distance
between you and other vehicles, as it
may be more difficult to see at night,
especially in areas where there may
not be any street lights.
• Adjust your mirrors to reduce the glare
from other driver's headlights.
• Keep your headlights clean and properly aimed on vehicles not equipped
with the automatic headlight aiming
feature. Dirty or improperly aimed
headlights will make it much more difficult to see at night.
• Avoid staring directly at the headlights
of oncoming vehicles. You could be
temporarily blinded, and it will take
several seconds for your eyes to readjust to the darkness.
Rain and wet roads can make driving
dangerous, especially if you’re not prepared for the slick pavement. Here are a
few things to consider when driving in the
rain:
• A heavy rainfall will make it harder to
see and will increase the distance
needed to stop your vehicle, so slow
down.
• Keep your windshield wiping equipment in good shape. Replace your
windshield wiper blades when they
show signs of streaking or missing
areas on the windshield.
• If your tires are not in good condition,
making a quick stop on wet pavement
can cause a skid and possibly lead to
an accident. Be sure your tires are in
good shape.
• Turn on your headlights to make it easier for others to see you.
• Driving too fast through large puddles
can affect your brakes. If you must go
through puddles, try to drive through
them slowly.
• If you believe you may have gotten
your brakes wet, apply them lightly
while driving until normal braking operation returns.
WARNING - Spinning tires
Do not spin the wheels, especially
at speeds more than 56 km/h (35
mph). Spinning the wheels at high
speeds when the vehicle is stationary could cause a tire to overheat,
explode and injure bystanders.
5 8
Driving tips
Winter driving
• We recommend that you carry emergency equipment, including tire chains,
a window scraper, windshield de-icer,
a bag of sand or salt, flares, a small
shovel and jumper cables.
• Make sure you have sufficient ethylene-glycol coolant in the radiator.
• Check the battery condition and
cables. Cold temperatures reduce the
capacity of any battery, so it must be in
excellent condition to provide enough
winter starting power.
• Make sure the engine oil viscosity is
suitable for cold weather.
• Check the ignition system for loose
connections and damage.
• Use antifreeze-formulated windshield
washer fluid. (Do not use engine
coolant antifreeze.)
• Do not use the parking brake if it might
freeze. When parking, shift to P (Park)
with an automatic transaxle and block
the rear wheels.
Snow tires
If you mount snow tires on your Kia,
make sure they are radial tires of the
same size and load range as the original
tires. Mount snow tires on all four wheels
to balance your vehicle’s handling in all
weather conditions. Keep in mind that the
traction provided by snow tires on dry
roads may not be as high as your vehicle's original equipment tires. You should
drive cautiously even when the roads are
clear. Check with the tire dealer for maximum speed recommendations.
Do not install studded tires without first
checking local, state and municipal regulations for possible restrictions against
their use.
Driving in flooded areas
Avoid driving through flooded areas
unless you are sure the water is no higher than the bottom of the wheel hub.
Drive through any water slowly. Allow
adequate stopping distance because
brake performance may be affected.
After driving through water, dry the
brakes by gently applying them several
times while the vehicle is moving slowly.
WARNING - Snow tire size
Snow tires should be equivalent in
size and type to the vehicle's standard tires. Otherwise, the safety and
handling of your vehicle may be
adversely affected.

Driving tips
HLA (Hydraulic Lash Adjuster)
noise
The engine HLA's keep the gap between
the valve and cam at zero regardless of
the valve expansion.
Occasionally, you may hear a temporary
or continuous sound (clatter) from the
engine when starting or idling. This noise
will usually go away by following a few
simple steps:
CAUTION
Do not run the engine at more than
3000 rpm until the noise goes away.
Damage to the HLA's could occur.
5 10
If the temporary sound occurs when
starting a cold engine:
This is a normal condition. This sound
will disappear after the engine oil has
reached normal operating pressure.
If the sound occurs when starting the
engine after the engine has not been operated for more than 48 hours; or engine
has been cranked excessively:
This condition may be caused by oil
draining from the HLA's. This allows air to
enter the HLA causing insufficient lubricating oil in the HLA. This will usually disappear within 15 minutes with the engine
running at 2000~3000 rpm. If the sound
does not disappear, have the engine oil
pressure, engine lubrication system and
HLA's inspected by an Authorized Kia
Dealer.

Tire and loading information label
The label located on the driver's door sill gives the original tire size, cold tire
pressures recommended for your vehicle, the number of people that can be
in your vehicle and vehicle capacity weight.
Vehicle capacity weight:
390 kg (860 lbs)
Vehicle capacity weight is the maximum combined weight of occupants
and cargo. If your vehicle is equipped
with a trailer, the combined weight
includes the tongue load.
Seating capacity:
Total : 5 persons
(Front seat : 2 persons,
Rear seat : 3 persons)
Seating capacity is the maximum
number of occupants including a
driver, your vehicle may carry.
However the seating capacity may
be reduced based upon the weight of
all of the occupants, and the weight
of the cargo being carried or towed.
Do not overload the vehicle as there
is a limit to the total weight, or load
limit including occupants and cargo,
the vehicle can carry.
5 11
Driving tips
Towing capacity:
Without trailer brakes:
454 kg (1000 lbs)
With trailer brakes:
908 kg (2000 lbs)
Towing capacity is the maximum
trailer weight including its cargo
weight, your vehicle can tow.
Cargo capacity:
The cargo capacity of your vehicle
will increase or decrease depending
on the weight and the number of
occupants and the tongue load, if
your vehicle is equipped with a trailer.
5 12
Steps for determining correct
load limit
1. Locate the statement "The combined weight of occupants and
cargo should never exceed XXX
kg or XXX lbs.'' on your vehicle's
placard.
2. Determine the combined weight of
the driver and passengers that will
be riding in your vehicle.
3. Subtract the combined weight of
the driver and passengers from
XXX kg or XXX lbs.
4. The resulting figure equals the
available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity. For example, if
the "XXX" amount equals 635 kg
(1400 lbs.), and there will be five
68 kg (150 lbs.) passengers in
your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load
capacity is 295 kg (650 lbs.).
(635-340 (5 x 68) = 295 kg or
1400-750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.)
5. Determine the combined weight of
luggage and cargo being loaded
on the vehicle. That weight may
not safely exceed the available
cargo and luggage load capacity
calculated in Step 4.
6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be
transferred to your vehicle. Consult
this manual to determine how this
reduces the available cargo and
luggage load capacity of your
vehicle.

Driving tips
To find out the actual loads on your
front and rear axles, you need to go
to a weigh station and weigh your
vehicle.Your dealer can help you with
this. Be sure to spread out your load
equally on both sides of the centerline.
1JBN5901
Compliance label
The compliance label is located on
the driver's door sill.
This label shows the maximum
allowable weight of the fully loaded
vehicle. This is called the GVWR
(Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). The
GVWR includes the weight of the
vehicle, all occupants, fuel and
cargo.
This label also tells you the maximum weight that can be supported
by the front and rear axles, called
Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).
5 14
WARNING - Over loading
• Never exceed the GVWR for
your vehicle, the GAWR for
either the front or rear axle
and vehicle capacity weight.
Exceeding these ratings can
cause an accident or vehicle
damage. You can calculate the
weight of your load by weighing the items (or people)
before putting them in the
vehicle. Be careful not to overload your vehicle.
• Do not load your vehicle any
heavier than the GVWR, either
the maximum front or rear
GAWR and vehicle capacity
weight.
(Continued)
(Continued)
If you do, parts, including tires
on your vehicle can break, and
it can change the way your
vehicle handles and braking
ability.This could cause you to
lose control and crash. Also,
overloading can shorten the
life of your vehicle.
✽ NOTICE
• Overloading your vehicle may
cause damage. Repairs would not
be covered by your warranty. Do
not overload your vehicle.
• Using heavier suspension components to get added durability
might not change your weight ratings. Ask your dealer to help you
load your vehicle the right way.
The label will help you decide how
much cargo and installed equipment
your vehicle can carry.
Driving tips
WEIGHT OF THE VEHICLE
If you carry items inside your vehicle
- like suitcases, tools, packages, or
anything else - they are moving as
fast as the vehicle. If you have to stop
or turn quickly, or if there is a crash,
the items will keep going and can
cause an injury if they strike the driver or a passenger.
WARNING - Loose cargo
Items you carry inside your
vehicle can strike and injure
occupants in a sudden stop or
turn, or in a crash.
• Put items in the cargo area of
your vehicle. Try to spread the
weight evenly.
• Never stack items, like suitcases, inside the vehicle
above the tops of the seats.
• Do not leave an unsecured
child restraint in your vehicle.
• When you carry something
inside the vehicle, secure it.
• Do not drive with a seat folded
down unless necessary.
This section will guide you in the
proper loading of your vehicle and/or
trailer, to keep your loaded vehicle
weight within its design rating capability, with or without a trailer.
Properly loading your vehicle will
provide maximum return of the vehicle design performance. Before loading your vehicle, familiarize yourself
with the following terms for determining your vehicle's weight ratings, with
or without a trailer, from the vehicle's
specifications and the compliance
label:
Base curb weight
This is the weight of the vehicle
including a full tank of fuel and all
standard equipment. It does not
include passengers, cargo, or optional equipment.
Vehicle curb weight
This is the weight of your new vehicle
when you picked it up from your dealer plus any aftermarket equipment.
Cargo weight
This figure includes all weight added
to the Base Curb Weight, including
cargo and optional equipment.
GAW (Gross axle weight)
This is the total weight placed on
each axle (front and rear) - including
vehicle curb weight and all payload.
GAWR (Gross axle weight rating)
This is the maximum allowable
weight that can be carried by a single
axle (front or rear). These numbers
are shown on the compliance label.
The total load on each axle must
never exceed its GAWR.
GVW (Gross vehicle weight)
This is the Base Curb Weight plus
actual Cargo Weight plus passengers.
GVWR (Gross vehicle weight rating)
This is the maximum allowable
weight of the fully loaded vehicle
(including all options, equipment,
passengers and cargo). The GVWR
is shown on the compliance label
located on the driver’s door sill.

TRAILER TOWING
WARNING - Towing a trailer
If you don't use the correct equipment and drive properly, you can
lose control when you pull a trailer.
For example, if the trailer is too
heavy, the brakes may not work well
- or even at all. You and your passengers could be seriously or fatally injured. Pull a trailer only if you
have followed all the steps in this
section.

section.
Specification
454 (1000)
908 (2000)
Your vehicle can tow a trailer. To identify
what the vehicle trailering capacity is for
your vehicle, you should read the information in “Weight of the Trailer” that
appears later in this section. Remember
that trailering is different than just driving
your vehicle by itself. Trailering means
changes in handling, durability, and fuel
economy. Successful, safe trailering
requires correct equipment, and it has to
be used properly.
This section contains many time-tested,
important trailering tips and safety rules.
Many of these are important for your
safety and that of your passengers.
Please read this section carefully before
you pull a trailer.
Driving tips
Load-pulling components such as the
engine, transaxle, wheel assemblies, and
tires are forced to work harder against
the load of the added weight. The engine
is required to operate at relatively higher
speeds and under greater loads. This
additional burden generates extra heat.
The trailer also adds considerably to
wind resistance, increasing the pulling
requirements.
If you do decide to pull a trailer
Here are some important points if you
decide to pull a trailer:
• Consider using a sway control. You can
ask a hitch dealer about sway control.
• After your odometer indicates 800 km
(500 miles) or more, you can tow a
trailer. For the first 800 km (500 miles)
that you tow a trailer, don’t drive over
80 km/h (50 mph) and don’t make
starts at full throttle. This helps your
engine and other parts of your vehicle
“wear” in at the heavier loads.
• Always drive at a safe speed (less than
100 km/h) commensurate with road
conditions.
• The important considerations have to
do with weight:
Weight of the trailer
How heavy can a trailer safely be? It
should never weigh more than 908 kg
(2000 lbs.) with trailer brakes. But even
that can be too heavy.
It depends on how you plan to use your
trailer. For example, speed, altitude, road
grades, outside temperature and how
much your vehicle is used to pull a trailer
are all important. The ideal trailer weight
can also depend on any special equipment that you have on your vehicle.
5 17
Driving tips
Weight of the trailer tongue
The tongue load of any trailer is an
important weight to measure because it
affects the total gross vehicle weight
(GVW) of your vehicle. This weight
includes the curb weight of the vehicle,
any cargo you may carry in it, and the
people who will be riding in the vehicle.
And if you will tow a trailer, you must add
the tongue load to the GVW because
your vehicle will also be carrying that
weight.
After you've loaded your trailer, weigh the
trailer and then the tongue, separately, to
see if the weights are proper. If they
aren’t, you may be able to correct them
simply by moving some items around in
the trailer.
5 18
WARNING
• Never load a trailer with more
weight in the rear than in the
front. The front should be loaded
with approximately 60% of the
total trailer load; the rear should
be loaded with approximately
40% of the total trailer load.
• Never exceed the maximum
weight limits of the trailer or trailer towing equipment. Improper
loading can result in damage to
your vehicle and/or personal
injury. Check weights and loading
at a commercial scale or highway
patrol office equipped with
scales.
• An improperly loaded trailer can
cause loss of vehicle control.
Hitches
It's important to have the correct hitch
equipment. Crosswinds, large trucks
going by, and rough roads are a few reasons why you’ll need the right hitch. Here
are some rules to follow:
• Will you have to make any holes in the
body of your vehicle when you install a
trailer hitch? If you do, then be sure to
seal the holes later when you remove
the hitch.
If you don’t seal them, deadly carbon
monoxide (CO) from your exhaust can
get into your vehicle, as well as dirt and
water.
• The bumpers on your vehicle are not
intended for hitches. Do not attach
rental hitches or other bumper-type
hitches to them. Use only a framemounted hitch that does not attach to
the bumper.
Driving tips
Safety chains
You should always attach chains
between your vehicle and your trailer.
Cross the safety chains under the tongue
of the trailer so that the tongue will not
drop to the road if it becomes separated
from the hitch.
Instructions about safety chains may be
provided by the hitch manufacturer or by
the trailer manufacturer. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for attaching
safety chains. Always leave just enough
slack so you can turn with your trailer.
And, never allow safety chains to drag on
the ground.
Trailer brakes
If your trailer weighs more than 454 kg
(1000 lbs.) loaded, then it needs its own
brakes and they must be adequate. Be
sure to read and follow the instructions
for the trailer brakes so you’ll be able to
install, adjust and maintain them properly.
• Don’t tap into your vehicle's brake system.
WARNING
Do not use a trailer with its own
brakes unless you are absolutely
certain that you have properly set
up the brake system. This is not a
task for amateurs. Use an experienced, competent trailer shop for
this work.
Driving with a trailer
Towing a trailer requires a certain
amount of experience. Before setting out
for the open road, you must get to know
your trailer. Acquaint yourself with the
feel of handling and braking with the
added weight of the trailer. And always
keep in mind that the vehicle you are
driving is now a good deal longer and not
nearly so responsive as your vehicle is
by itself.
Before you start, check the trailer hitch
and platform, safety chains, electrical
connector(s), lights, tires and mirror
adjustment. If the trailer has electric
brakes, start your vehicle and trailer moving and then apply the trailer brake controller by hand to be sure the brakes are
working. This lets you check your electrical connection at the same time.
During your trip, check occasionally to be
sure that the load is secure, and that the
lights and any trailer brakes are still working.
5 19
Driving tips
Following distance
Stay at least twice as far behind the vehicle ahead as you would when driving
your vehicle without a trailer. This can
help you avoid situations that require
heavy braking and sudden turns.
Passing
You’ll need more passing distance up
ahead when you’re towing a trailer. And,
because you’re a good deal longer, you’ll
need to go much farther beyond the
passed vehicle before you can return to
your lane.
Backing up
Hold the bottom of the steering wheel
with one hand. Then, to move the trailer
to the left, just move your hand to the left.
To move the trailer to the right, move your
hand to the right. Always back up slowly
and, if possible, have someone guide
you.
Making turns
When you’re turning with a trailer, make
wider turns than normal. Do this so your
trailer won’t strike soft shoulders, curbs,
road signs, trees, or other objects. Avoid
jerky or sudden maneuvers. Signal well
in advance.
Turn signals when towing a trailer
When you tow a trailer, your vehicle has
to have a different turn signal flasher and
extra wiring. The green arrows on your
instrument panel will flash whenever you
signal a turn or lane change. Properly
connected, the trailer lights will also flash
to alert other drivers you’re about to turn,
change lanes, or stop.
When towing a trailer, the green arrows
on your instrument panel will flash for
turns even if the bulbs on the trailer are
burned out. Thus, you may think drivers
behind you are seeing your signals
when, in fact, they are not. It’s important
to check occasionally to be sure the trailer bulbs are still working. You must also
check the lights every time you disconnect and then reconnect the wires.
Do not connect a trailer lighting system
directly to your vehicle’s lighting system.
Use only an approved trailer wiring harness.
Your Authorized Kia Dealer can assist
you in installing the wiring harness.
WARNING
Failure to use an approved trailer

Driving tips
Driving on grades
Reduce speed and shift to a lower gear
before you start down a long or steep
downgrade. If you don’t shift down, you
might have to use your brakes so much
that they would get hot and no longer
operate efficiently.
On a long uphill grade, shift down and
reduce your speed to around 70 km/h (45
mph) to reduce the possibility of engine
and transaxle overheating.
If your trailer weighs more than 454 kg
(1000 lbs.) and you have an automatic
transaxle, you should drive in D (Drive)
when towing a trailer.
Operating your vehicle in D (Drive) when
towing a trailer will minimize heat buildup
and extend the life of your transaxle.
CAUTION
• When towing a trailer on steep
grades (in excess of 6%) pay
close attention to the engine
coolant temperature gauge to
ensure the engine does not overheat. If the needle of the coolant
temperature gauge moves across
the dial towards “H” (HOT), pull
over and stop as soon as it is safe
to do so, and allow the engine to
idle until it cools down. You may
proceed once the engine has
cooled sufficiently.
• You must decide driving speed
depending on trailer weight and
uphill grade to reduce the possibility of engine and transaxle
overheating.
Parking on hills
Generally, you should not park your vehicle, with a trailer attached, on a hill.
People can be seriously or fatally injured,
and both your vehicle and the trailer can
be damaged if they begin a downhill trajectory.
WARNING - Parking on a
hill
Parking your vehicle on a hill with a
trailer attached could cause serious
injury or death, should a down hill
trajectory happen.
5 21
Driving tips
However, if you ever have to park your
trailer on a hill, here’s how to do it:
1. Apply your brakes, but don’t shift into
gear.
2. Have someone place chocks under
the trailer wheels.
3. When the wheel chocks are in place,
release the brakes until the chocks
absorb the load.
4. Reapply the brakes. Apply your parking brake, and then shift to P (Park) for
an automatic transaxle.
5. Release the brakes.
WARNING - Parking brake
It can be dangerous to get out of
your vehicle if the parking brake is
not firmly set.
If you have left the engine running,
the vehicle can move suddenly. You
or others could be seriously or
fatally injured.
5 22
When you are ready to leave after
parking on a hill
1. With the automatic transaxle in P
(Park), apply your brakes and hold the
brake pedal down while you:
• Start your engine;
• Shift into gear; and
• Release the parking brake.
2. Slowly remove your foot from the
brake pedal.
3. Drive slowly until the trailer is clear of
the chocks.
4. Stop and have someone pick up and
store the chocks.
Maintenance when trailer towing
Your vehicle will need service more often
when you regularly pull a trailer.
Important items to pay particular attention include engine oil, automatic
transaxle fluid, axle lubricant and cooling
system fluid. Brake condition is another
important item to frequently check. Each
item is covered in this manual, and the
Index will help you find them quickly. If
you’re trailering, it’s a good idea to review
these sections before you start your trip.
Don’t forget to also maintain your trailer
and hitch. Follow the maintenance
schedule that accompanied your trailer
and check it periodically. Preferably, conduct the check at the start of each day’s
driving. Most importantly, all hitch nuts
and bolts should be tight.
CAUTION
Due to higher load during trailer
usage, overheating might occur in
hot days or during uphill driving. If
the coolant gauge indicates overheating, switch off the A/C and stop
the vehicle in a safe area to cool
down the engine.

OVERHEATING
Depress the flasher switch with the ignition switch in any position. The flasher
switch is located in the center console
switch panel. All turn signal lights will
flash simultaneously.
OGH026040
Hazard warning flasher
The hazard warning flasher serves as a
warning to other drivers to exercise
extreme caution when approaching,
overtaking, or passing your vehicle. It
should be used whenever emergency
repairs are being made or when the vehicle is stopped near the edge of a roadway.
6 2
• The hazard warning flasher operates
whether your vehicle is running or not.
• The turn signals do not work when the
hazard flasher is on.
• Care must be taken when using the
hazard warning flasher while the vehicle is being towed.
If your temperature gauge indicates overheating, if you experience a loss of
power, or if you hear a loud knocking or
pinging noise, the engine has probably
overheated. Should any of these symptoms occur, use the following procedure:
1. Turn on the hazard warning flasher,
then drive to the nearest safe location
and stop your vehicle; set the automatic transaxle in P (Park) and apply the
parking brake.
2. Make sure the air conditioner is off.
3. If coolant or steam is boiling out of the
radiator, stop the engine and call an
Authorized Kia Dealer for assistance.
If coolant is not boiling out, allow the
engine to idle and open the hood to
permit the engine to cool gradually.
If the temperature does not go down
with the engine idling, stop the engine
and allow sufficient time for it to cool.
In case of an emergency
EMERGENCY STARTING
4. The coolant level should then be
checked. If the level in the reservoir is
low, look for leaks at the radiator hoses
and connections, heater hoses and
connections, radiator, and water
pump. If you find a major leak or another problem that may have caused the
engine to overheat, do not operate the
engine until it has been corrected. Call
an Authorized Kia Dealer for assistance. If you do not find a leak or other
problem, carefully add coolant to the
reservoir.
WARNING - Removing
radiator cap
Do not remove the radiator cap
when the engine and radiator are
hot. Scalding hot coolant and steam
may blow out under pressure. This
could cause serious injury.
If the engine frequently overheats, have
the cooling system checked and repaired
by an Authorized Kia Dealer.
Jump starting
Jump starting can be dangerous if done
incorrectly. Therefore, to avoid harm to
yourself or damage to your vehicle or
battery, follow the jump starting procedures listed on page 6-4. If in doubt, we
strongly recommend that you have a

under the front or rear of the vehicle. Use
extreme caution when towing the vehicle.
A driver must be in the vehicle to steer it
and operate the brakes.
Towing in this manner may be done only
on hard-surfaced roads for a short distance and at low speeds. Also, the
wheels, axles, power train, steering and
brakes must all be in good condition.
• Do not use the tow hooks to pull a
vehicle out of mud, sand or other conditions from which the vehicle cannot
be driven out under its own power.
• Avoid towing a vehicle heavier than the
vehicle doing the towing.
• The drivers of both vehicles should
communicate with each other frequently.
In case of an emergency
CAUTION
• Attach a towing strap to the tow
hook.
• Using a portion of the vehicle
other than the tow hooks for towing may damage the body of your
vehicle.
• Use only a cable or chain specifically intended for use in towing
vehicles. Securely fasten the
cable or chain to the towing hook
provided.
• Before emergency towing, check that
the hook is not broken or damaged.
• Fasten the towing cable or chain
securely to the hook.
• Do not jerk the hook. Apply steady and
even force.
• To avoid damaging the hook, do not
pull from the side or at a vertical angle.
Always pull straight ahead.
WARNING
Use extreme caution when towing
the vehicle.
• Avoid sudden starts or erratic
driving maneuvers which would
place excessive stress on the
emergency towing hook and towing cable or chain. The hook and
towing cable or chain may break
and cause serious injury or damage.
• If the towing vehicle can hardly
move, do not forcibly continue
the towing. Contact an Authorized
Kia dealer or a commercial tow
truck service for assistance.
• Tow the vehicle as straight ahead
as possible.
• Keep away from the vehicle during towing.
1GHA4107
• Use a towing strap less than 5 m (16
feet) long. Attach a white or red cloth
(about 30 cm (12 inches) wide) in the
middle of the strap for easy visibility.
• Drive carefully so that the towing strap
is not loosened during towing.
6 15
In case of an emergency
When your vehicle is being towed
by another vehicle other than a
tow truck (In case of an emergency)
• Turn the ignition switch to ACC so the
steering wheel isn’t locked.
• Place the transaxle shift lever in N
(Neutral).
• Release the parking bake.
• Vehicle equipped with automatic
transaxles should not exceed 45 km/h
(28 mph) and should not be towed
more than 80 km (50 miles).
• Press the brake pedal with more force
than normal since you will have
reduced brake performance.
• More steering effort will be required
because the power steering system
will be disabled.
• If you are driving down a long hill, the
brakes may overheat and brake performance will be reduced. Stop often
and let the brakes cool off.
6 16
CAUTION
To prevent internal damage to the
transaxle, never tow your vehicle
from the rear (backwards) with all
four tires in contact with the surface.
Tips for towing a stuck vehicle
The following methods are effective
when your vehicle is stuck in mud, sand
or similar substances that prevent the
vehicle from being driven out under its
own power.
• Remove the soil and sand, etc. from
the front and the back of the tires.
• Place a stone or wood under the tires.
In case of an emergency
IF YOU HAVE A FLAT TIRE
Important - use of compact spare
tire
Your vehicle is equipped with a compact spare tire. This compact spare
tire takes up less space than a regular-size tire. This tire is smaller than a
conventional tire and is designed for
temporary use only.
OGH046010N
1GHA407
The spare tire, jack, jack handle and
wheel lug nut wrench are stored in
the trunk compartment. Move the
carpeting out of the way to reach this
equipment.
The jack assembly is located in the
trunk, under the carpeting, on the
spare tire.
Removing the spare tire
Turn the tire hold-down wing bolt
counterclockwise.
Store the tire in the reverse order of
removal.
To prevent the spare tire and tools
from “rattling” while the vehicle is in
motion, store them properly.
CAUTION - Compact spare
• You should drive carefully
when the compact spare is in
use. The compact spare
should be replaced by the
proper conventional tire and
rim at the first opportunity.
• The operation of this vehicle
is not recommended with
more than one compact spare
tire in use at the same time.
6 17
In case of an emergency
WARNING - Compact spare
This spare tire should be used
only for VERY short distances.
Compact spares should NEVER
be used for long drives or
extended distances.
The compact spare should be inflated to 420 kPa (60 psi).
✽ NOTICE
Check the inflation pressure after
installing the spare tire. Adjust it to
the specified pressure, as necessary.
6 18
When using a compact spare tire,
observe the following precautions:
• Under no circumstances should
you exceed 80 km/h (50 mph); a
higher speed could damage the
tire.
• Ensure that you drive slowly
enough for the road conditions to
avoid all hazards. Any road hazard,
such as a pothole or debris, could
seriously damage the compact
spare.
• Any continuous road use of this tire
could result in tire failure, loss of
vehicle control, and possible personal injury.
• Do not exceed the vehicle’s maximum load rating or the load-carrying capacity shown on the sidewall
of the compact spare tire.
• Avoid driving over obstacles. The
compact spare tire diameter is
smaller than the diameter of a conventional tire and reduces the
ground clearance approximately
25 mm (1 inch), which could result
in damage to the vehicle.
• Do not take the vehicle through an
automatic car wash with a compact
spare.
• Do not use tire chains on this tire.
Because of the smaller size, a tire
chain will not fit properly. This could
damage the vehicle and result in
loss of the chain.
• This tire should not be installed on
the front axle if the vehicle must be
driven in snow or on ice.
• Do not use the compact spare tire
on any other vehicle because this
tire has been designed especially
for your vehicle.
• The compact spare tire’s tread life
is shorter than a regular tire.
Inspect your compact spare tire
regularly and replace worn compact spare tires with the same size
and design, mounted on the same
wheel.
In case of an emergency
Changing tires
Jacking instructions
The jack is provided for emergency
tire changing only.
Follow jacking instructions to reduce
the possibility of personal injury.
WARNING - Changing tires
• Never attempt vehicle repairs
in the traffic lanes of a public
road or highway.
• Always move the vehicle completely off the road and onto
the shoulder before trying to
change a tire. The jack should
be used on level firm ground
whenever possible. If you cannot find a firm, level place off
the road, call a towing service
company for assistance.
• Be sure to use the correct
front and rear jacking positions on the vehicle; never use
the bumpers or any other part
of the vehicle for jack support.
(Continued)
(Continued)
• The vehicle can easily roll off
the jack causing serious
injury or death. No person
should place any portion of
their body under a vehicle that
is supported only by a jack ;
use vehicle support stands.
• Do not start or run the engine
while the vehicle is on the
jack.
• Do not allow anyone to remain
in the vehicle while it is on the
jack.
• Make sure any children present are in a secure place away
from the road and from the
vehicle to be raised with the
jack.
1JBA6021
Tire replacement
1. Park on a level surface and apply
the parking brake firmly.
2. Shift the shift lever into P (Park).
3. Activate the hazard warning flasher.
6 19
In case of an emergency
1JBA6504
4. Remove the wheel lug nut wrench,
jack, jack handle, and spare tire
from the vehicle.
5. Block both the front and rear of the
wheel that is diagonally opposite
the jack position.
6 20
WARNING - Changing a tire
• To prevent vehicle movement
while changing a tire, always
set the parking brake fully, and
always block the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel being
changed.
• It is recommended that the
wheels of the vehicle be
chocked, and that no person
should remain in a vehicle that
is being jacked.
2GHN409
6. Wrap a piece of cloth around the
tip of the screwdriver to avoid
scratching.
7. Insert a screwdriver into the notch
of the wheel cover and pry gently
to remove the wheel cover (if
equipped).
In case of an emergency
2GHN409B
1GHA4103
1GHA4104
8. Loosen the wheel lug nuts counterclockwise one turn each, but do
not remove any nut until the tire
has been raised off the ground.
9. Place the jack at the front or rear
jacking position closest to the tire
you are changing. Place the jack
at the designated locations under
the frame. The jacking positions
are plates welded to the frame
with two tabs and a raised dot to
index with the jack.
10. Insert the jack handle into the
jack and turn it clockwise, raising
the vehicle until the tire just
clears the ground. This measurement is approximately 30 mm
(1.2 in). Before removing the
wheel lug nuts, make sure the
vehicle is stable and that there is
no chance for movement or slippage.
11. Remove the wheel lug nuts by
turning them counterclockwise,
then remove the wheel.
12. Mount the spare tire into position
and install the wheel lug nuts
with the beveled edge inward.
WARNING - Jack location
To reduce the possibility of
injury, be sure to use only the
jack provided with the vehicle
and in the correct jack position;
never use any other part of the
vehicle for jack support.
6 21
In case of an emergency
14. Reinstall the wheel cover by fitting the boss of the wheel cover
in the groove of the wheel.
CAUTION
2GHN409A
13. Once the wheel lug nuts have
been tightened, lower the vehicle
fully to the ground and continue to
tighten the lug nuts until they are
fully secured. Tighten the wheel
lug nuts firmly in a “star” pattern.
If you are unsure of the tightness
of the wheel lug nuts, have them
checked at the nearest service
station. The specified tightening
torque is 9~11 kg•m (65-79 lb•ft,
88-107 N•m). Improperly tightened wheel lug nuts could cause
brake pedal vibration while braking.
6 22
Your vehicle has metric threads
on the wheel studs and nuts.
Make certain during wheel
removal that the same nuts
removed are reinstalled - or, if
replaced, that nuts with metric
threads and the same chamfer
configuration are used.
Installation of a non-metric
thread nut on a metric stud or
vice-versa will not secure the
wheel to the hub properly and
will damage the stud so that it
must be replaced.
Note that most lug nuts do not
have metric threads. Be sure to
use extreme care in checking
for thread style before installing
aftermarket lug nuts or wheels.
If in doubt, consult an
Authorized Kia Dealer.
WARNING - Wheel studs
If the studs are damaged, they
may lose their ability to retain
the wheel. This could lead to the
loss of the wheel and a collision.
To prevent the jack, jack handle,
wheel lug nut, wrench and spare tire
from rattling while the vehicle is in
motion, store them properly.
WARNING
Check the inflation pressures as
soon as possible after installing
the spare tire. Adjust it to the
specified pressure, if necessary.

OWNER MAINTENANCE
Owner maintenance schedule
The following lists are vehicle checks and
inspections that should be performed by
the owner or qualified service technician
at the frequencies indicated to help
ensure safe, dependable operation of
your vehicle.
Any adverse conditions should be
brought to the attention of your dealer or
qualified service technician or service
advisor as soon as possible.
These Owner Maintenance Checks are
generally not covered by warranties and
you may be charged for labor, parts and
lubricants used.
When you stop for fuel:
• Check the engine oil level.
• Check coolant level in coolant reservoir.
WARNING
Be careful when checking your
engine coolant level when the
engine is hot. Scalding hot coolant
and steam may blow out under
pressure. This could cause serious
injury.
• Check the windshield washer fluid
level.
• Look for low or under-inflated tires.
While operating your vehicle:
• Note any changes in the sound of the
exhaust or any smell of exhaust fumes
in the vehicle.
• Check for vibrations in the steering
wheel. Notice any increased steering
effort or looseness in the steering
wheel, or change in its straight-ahead
position.
• Notice if your vehicle constantly turns
slightly or “pulls” to one side when traveling on smooth, level road.
• When stopping, listen and check for
strange sounds, pulling to one side,
increased brake pedal travel or “hardto-push” brake pedal.
• If any slipping or changes in the operation of your transaxle occurs, check
the transaxle fluid level.
• Check automatic transaxle P (Park)
function.
• Check parking brake.
• Check for fluid leaks under your vehicle
(water dripping from the air conditioning system after use is normal).

WARNING - Maintenance
work
• Performing maintenance work on
a vehicle can be dangerous. You
can be seriously injured while performing some maintenance procedures. If you lack sufficient
knowledge and experience or the
proper tools and equipment to do
the work, have it done by a qualified technician.
• Working under the hood with the
engine running is dangerous. It
becomes even more dangerous
when you wear jewelry or loose
clothing. These can become
entangled in moving parts and
result in injury. Therefore, if you
must run the engine while working under the hood, make certain
that you remove all jewelry (especially rings, bracelets, watches,
and necklaces) and all neckties,
scarves, and similar loose clothing before getting near the engine
or cooling fans.

ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM
The high-pressure cooling system has a
reservoir filled with year-round antifreeze
coolant. The reservoir is filled at the factory.
Check the antifreeze protection and
coolant level at least once a year, at the
beginning of the winter season, and
before traveling to a colder climate.
Checking the coolant level
WARNING - Removing
radiator cap
• Never attempt to remove the radiator cap while the engine is operating or hot. Doing so might lead
to cooling system and engine
damage and could result in serious personal injury from escaping hot coolant or steam.
(Continued)
7 12
(Continued)
• Turn the engine off and wait until
it cools down. Even then, use
extreme care when removing the
radiator cap. Wrap a thick towel
around it, and turn it counterclockwise slowly to the first stop.
Step back while the pressure is
released from the cooling system.
When you are sure all the pressure has been released, press
down on the cap, using a thick
towel, and continue turning counterclockwise to remove it.
• Even if the engine is not operating, do not remove the radiator
cap or the drain plug while the
engine and radiator are hot. Hot
coolant and steam may still blow
out under pressure, causing serious injury.
OGH076003N
Check the condition and connections of
all cooling system hoses and heater
hoses. Replace any swollen or deteriorated hoses.
The coolant level should be filled
between F and L marks on the level
gauge attached to the coolant reservoir
cap when the engine is cool.
If the coolant level is low, add enough
specified coolant to provide protection
against freezing and corrosion. Bring the
level to F, but do not overfill. If frequent
additions are required, see an Authorized
Kia Dealer for a cooling system inspection.
Maintenance
Engine coolant
• Use only soft (de-mineralized) water in
the coolant mixture.
• The engine in your vehicle has aluminum engine parts and must be protected by an ethylene-glycol-based
coolant to prevent corrosion and freezing.
• DO NOT USE alcohol or methanol
coolant or mix them with the specified
coolant.
• Do not use a solution that contains
more than 60% antifreeze or less than
35% antifreeze, which would reduce
the effectiveness of the solution.
For mixture percentage, refer to the following table.

BRAKES
OGH056013
Checking brake fluid level
Check the fluid level in the reservoir periodically. The fluid level should be
between MAX and MIN marks on the
side of the reservoir.
Before removing the reservoir cap and
adding brake fluid, clean the area around
the reservoir cap thoroughly to prevent
brake fluid contamination.
7 14
If the level is low, add fluid to the MAX
level. The level will fall with accumulated
mileage. This is a normal condition associated with the wear of the brake pads. If
the fluid level is excessively low, have the
brake system checked by an Authorized
Kia Dealer.
Use only the specified brake fluid. (Refer
to “Recommended Lubricants” later in
this section.)
Never mix different types of fluid.
WARNING
In the event the brake system
requires frequent additions of fluid,
the vehicle should be inspected by
an Authorized Kia Dealer.
WARNING
When changing and adding brake
fluid, handle it carefully. Do not let it
come in contact with your eyes. If
brake fluid should come in contact
with your eyes, immediately flush
them with a large quantity of fresh
tap water. Have your eyes examined
by a doctor as soon as possible.
CAUTION
Do not allow brake fluid to contact
the vehicle's body paint, as paint
damage will result. Brake fluid,
which has been exposed to open air
for an extended time should never
be used as its quality cannot be
guaranteed. It should be thrown
out. Don't put in the wrong kind of
fluid. For example, just a few drops
of mineral-based oil, such as
engine oil, in your brake system can
damage brake system parts.
Maintenance
POWER STEERING
In the event the power steering system
requires frequent addition of fluid, the
vehicle should be inspected by an
Authorized Kia Dealer.
Power steering hose
Check the connections for oil leaks,
severe damage and the twists in the
power steering hose before driving.
✽ NOTICE
OGH076421N
Checking the power steering fluid
level
With the vehicle on level ground, check
the fluid level in the power steering reservoir periodically. The fluid should be
between MAX and MIN marks on the
level gauge attached to the cap.
Before adding power steering fluid, thoroughly clean the area around the reservoir cap to prevent power steering fluid
contamination.
If the level is low, add fluid to the MAX
level.
• To avoid damage to the power steering pump, do not operate the vehicle
for prolonged periods with a low
power steering fluid level.
• Never start the engine when the reservoir tank is empty.
• When adding fluid, be careful that
dirt does not get into the tank.
• Too little fluid can make the steering
wheel heavier or strange noise can be
generated.
• The use of the non-specified fluid
could reduce the effectiveness of the
power steering wheel and cause damage to it.
Use only the specified power steering
fluid.

OVQ056002
3. Confirm that the fluid level is in “HOT”
range on the level gauge. If the fluid
level is lower, add the specified fluid
from the fill hole. If the fluid level is
higher, drain the fluid from the drain
hole.
4. If the fluid level is checked in cold condition (fluid temperature 20~30°C
(68~86°F) add the fluid to “COLD” line
and then recheck the fluid level
according to the above step 2.
Maintenance
WARNING - Transaxle fluid
The transaxle fluid level should be
checked when the engine is at normal operating temperature. This
means that the engine, radiator,
radiator hose and exhaust system
etc., are very hot. Exercise great
care not to burn yourself during this
procedure.
CAUTION
• Low fluid level causes transaxle
slippage. Overfilling can cause
foaming, loss of fluid and
transaxle malfunction.
• The use of a non-specified fluid
could result in transaxle malfunction.
WARNING - Parking brake
To avoid sudden movement of the
vehicle, apply parking brake and
depress the brake pedal before
moving the shift lever.
✽ NOTICE
“COLD” scale is for reference only and
should NOT be used to determine
transaxle fluid level.
New automatic transaxle fluid should be
red. The red dye is added so the assembly plant can identify it as automatic
transaxle fluid and distinguish it from
engine oil or antifreeze. The red dye,
which is not an indicator of fluid quality, is
not permanent. As the vehicle is driven,
the automatic transaxle fluid will begin to
look darker. The color may eventually
appear light brown.

TIRES AND WHEELS
Tire care
For proper maintenance, safety, and
maximum fuel economy, you must
always maintain recommended tire
inflation pressures and stay within
the load limits and weight distribution
recommended for your vehicle.
Recommended cold tire inflation
pressures
All tire pressures (including the
spare) should be checked every day
when the tires are cold. “Cold Tires”
means the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours or driven
less than 1.6 km (one mile).
Recommended pressures must be
maintained for the best ride, top vehicle handling, and minimum tire wear.

WARNING - Tire underinflation
Severe underinflation (70 kPa
(10 psi) or more) can lead to
severe heat build-up, causing
blowouts, tread separation and
other tire failures that can result
in the loss of vehicle control
leading to severe injury or
death. This risk is much higher
on hot days and when driving
for protracted periods at high
speeds.
7 25
Maintenance
✽ NOTICE
• Underinflation also results in
excessive wear, poor handling and
reduced fuel economy. Wheel
deformation also is possible. Keep
your tire pressures at the proper
levels. If a tire frequently needs
refilling, have it checked by an
Authorized Kia Dealer.
• Overinflation produces a harsh
ride, excessive wear at the center
of the tire tread, and a greater possibility of damage from road hazards.
✽ NOTICE
• Warm tires normally exceed recommended cold tire pressures by
28 to 41 kPa (4 to 6 psi). Do not
release air from warm tires to
adjust the pressure or the tires will
be underinflated.
• Be sure to reinstall the tire inflation valve caps. Without the valve
cap, dirt or moisture could get into
the valve core and cause air leakage. If a valve cap is missing,
install a new one as soon as possible.
7 26
WARNING - Tire Inflation
Overinflation or underinflation
can reduce tire life, adversely
affect vehicle handling, and lead
to sudden tire failure. This could
result in loss of vehicle control
and potential injury.
WARNING - Tire pressure
Always observe the following:
• Check tire pressure when the
tires are cold. (After vehicle
has been parked for at least
three hours or hasn't been
driven more than 1.6 km (one
mile) since startup.)
• Check the pressure of your
spare tire each time you check
the pressure of other tires.
• Never overload your vehicle.
Be careful not to overload a
vehicle luggage rack if your
vehicle is equipped with one.
• Worn, old tires can cause accidents. If your tread is badly
worn, or if your tires have
been damaged, replace them.
Checking tire inflation pressure
Check your tires once a month or
more.
Also, check the tire pressure of the
spare tire.
How to check
Use a good quality gauge to check
tire pressure. You can not tell if your
tires are properly inflated simply by
looking at them. Radial tires may
look properly inflated even when
they're underinflated.
Check the tire's inflation pressure
when the tires are cold. - "Cold"
means your vehicle has been sitting
for at least three hours or driven no
more than 1.6 km (1 mile).
Maintenance
Remove the valve cap from the tire
valve stem. Press the tire gauge firmly onto the valve to get a pressure
measurement. If the cold tire inflation
pressure matches the recommended
pressure on the tire and loading
information label, no further adjustment is necessary. If the pressure is
low, add air until you reach the recommended amount.
If you overfill the tire, release air by
pushing on the metal stem in the center of the tire valve. Recheck the tire
pressure with the tire gauge. Be sure
to put the valve caps back on the
valve stems. They help prevent leaks
by keeping out dirt and moisture.
Tire rotation
To equalize tread wear, it is recommended that the tires be rotated
every 12,000 km (7,500 miles) or
sooner if irregular wear develops.
During rotation, check the tires for
correct balance.
When rotating tires, check for uneven
wear and damage. Abnormal wear is
usually caused by incorrect tire pressure, improper wheel alignment, outof-balance wheels, severe braking or
severe cornering. Look for bumps or
bulges in the tread or side of tire.
Replace the tire if you find either of
these conditions. Replace the tire if
fabric or cord is visible. After rotation,
be sure to bring the front and rear tire
pressures to specification and check
lug nut tightness.
Refer to Section 8, Specifications.

WARNING
• Do not use the temporary
spare tire for tire rotation
• Do not mix bias ply and radial
ply tires under any circumstances. This may cause
unusual handling characteristics that could result in death,
severe injury, or property
damage.
7 28
2GHA5032
Tire replacement
If the tire is worn evenly, a tread wear
indicator will appear as a solid band
across the tread. This shows there is
less than 1.6 mm (1/16 inch) of tread
left on the tire. Replace the tire when
this happens.
Do not wait for the band to appear
across the entire tread before replacing the tire.
Wheel alignment and tire
balance
The wheels on your vehicle were
aligned and balanced carefully at the
factory to give you the longest tire life
and best overall performance.
In most cases, you will not need to
have your wheels aligned again.
However, if you notice unusual tire
wear or your vehicle pulling one way
or the other, the alignment may need
to be reset.
If you notice your vehicle vibrating
when driving on a smooth road, your
wheels may need to be rebalanced.
✽ NOTICE
Improper wheel weights can damage your vehicle's aluminum wheels.
Use only approved wheel weights.
Maintenance
WARNING - Replacing tires
• Driving on worn-out tires is
very hazardous and will
reduce braking effectiveness,
steering accuracy, and traction.
• Your vehicle is equipped with
tires designed to provide for
safe ride and handling capability. Do not use a size and
type of tire and wheel that is
different from the one that is
originally installed on your
vehicle. It can affect the safety
and performance of your vehicle, which could lead to handling failure or rollover and
serious injury. When replacing
the tires, be sure to equip all
four tires with the tire and
wheel of the same size, type,
tread, brand and load-carrying
capacity.
(Continued)
(Continued)
If you nevertheless decide to
equip your vehicle with any
tire/wheel combination not
recommended by Kia for off
road driving, you should not
use these tires for highway
driving.
• The use of any other tire size
or type may seriously affect
ride, handling, ground clearance, stopping distance, body
to tire clearance, snow tire
clearance, and speedometer
reliability.
• It is best to replace all four
tires at the same time. If that is
not possible, or necessary,
then replace the two front or
two rear tires as a pair.
Replacing just one tire can
seriously affect your vehicle’s
handling.
Wheel replacement
When replacing the metal wheels for
any reason, make sure the new
wheels are equivalent to the original
factory units in diameter, rim width
and offset.
WARNING
A wheel that is not the correct
size may adversely affect wheel
and bearing life, braking and
stopping abilities, handling
characteristics, ground clearance, body-to-tire clearance,
snow
chain
clearance,
speedometer calibration, headlight aim and bumper height.
7 29
Maintenance
Tire maintenance
In addition to proper inflation, correct
wheel alignment helps to decrease
tire wear. If you find a tire is worn
unevenly, have your dealer check the
wheel alignement.
When you have new tires installed,
make sure they are balanced. This
will increase vehicle ride comfort and
tire life. Additionally, a tire should
always be rebalanced if it is removed
from the wheel.
Tire traction
Tire traction can be reduced if you
drive on worn tires, tires that are
improperly inflated or on slippery
road surfaces. Tires should be
replaced when tread wear indicators
appear. To reduce the possiblity of
losing control, slow down whenever
there is rain, snow or ice on the road.

Tire sidewall labeling
Federal law requires tire manufacturers to place standardized information
on the sidewall of all tires. This information identifies and describes the
fundamental characteristics of the
tire and also provides the tire identification number (TIN) for safety standard certification. The TIN can be
used to identify the tire in case of a
recall.
1. Manufacturer or brand name
Manufacturer or Brand name is
shown.
7 30
A tire’s sidewall is marked with a tire
size designation. You will need this
information when selecting replacement tires for your car. The following
explains what the letters and numbers in the tire size designation
mean.
Example tire size designation:
(These numbers are provided as an
example only; your tire size designator could vary depending on your
vehicle.)
P185/65R14 86H
P - Applicable vehicle type (tires
marked with the prefix “P’’ are
intended for use on passenger
cars or light trucks; however, not
all tires have this marking).
185 - Tire width in millimeters.
65 - Aspect ratio. The tire’s section
height as a percentage of its
width.
R - Tire construction code (Radial).
14 - Rim diameter in inches.
Maintenance
86 - Load Index, a numerical code
associated with the maximum
load the tire can carry.
H - Speed Rating Symbol. See the
speed rating chart in this section
for additional information.
Wheel size designation
Wheels are also marked with important information that you need if you
ever have to replace one. The following explains what the letters and
numbers in the wheel size designation mean.
Example wheel size designation:
5.5JX14
5.5 - Rim width in inches.
J - Rim contour designation.
14 - Rim diameter in inches.
Tire speed ratings
The chart below lists many of the different speed ratings currently being
used for passenger cars. The speed

Above 149 mph (240 km/h)
3. Checking tire life (TIN : Tire
Identification Number)
Any tires that are over 6 years, based
on the manufacturing date, tire
strength and performance, decline
with age naturally (even unused
spare tires). Therefore, the tires
(including the spare tire) should be
replaced by new ones. You can find
the manufacturing date on the tire
sidewall (possibly on the inside of the
wheel), displaying the DOT Code.
The DOT Code is a series of numbers on a tire consisting of numbers
and English letters. The manufacturing date is designated by the last four
digits (characters) of the DOT code.
DOT : XXXX XXXX OOOO
The front part of the DOT means a
plant code number, tire size and
tread pattern and the last four numbers indicate week and year manufactured.
For example:
DOT XXXX XXXX 1606 represents
that the tire was produced in the 16th
week of 2006.
7 31
Maintenance
WARNING
Tires degrade over time, even
when they are not being used.
Regardless of the remaining
tread, it is recommended that
tires generally be replaced after
six (6) years of normal service.
Heat caused by hot climates or
frequent high loading conditions can accelerate the aging
process. Failure to follow this
warning can result in sudden
tire failure, which could lead to a
loss of control and an accident
involving serious injury or
death.
4. Tire ply composition and material
The number of layers or plies of rubber-coated fabric in the tire. Tire
manufacturers also must indicate the
materials in the tire, which include
steel, nylon, polyester, and others.
The letter "R" means radial ply construction; the letter "D" means diagonal or bias ply construction; and the
letter "B" means belted-bias ply construction.
7 32
5. Maximum permissible inflation
pressure
This number is the greatest amount
of air pressure that should be put in
the tire. Do not exceed the maximum
permissible inflation pressure. Refer
to the Tire and Loading Information
label for recommended inflation
pressure.
6. Maximum load rating
This number indicates the maximum
load in kilograms and pounds that
can be carried by the tire. When
replacing the tires on the vehicle,
always use a tire that has the same
load rating as the factory installed
tire.
7. Uniform tire quality grading
The following information relates to
the tire grading system developed by
the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard (CMVSS) for grading tires
by tread wear, traction and temperature performance.
Tread wear
The tread wear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of
the tire when tested under controlled
conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire
graded 150 would wear one-and-ahalf times as well on the government
course as a tire graded 100.
The relative performance of tires
depends upon the actual conditions
of their use. However, performance
may differ from the norm because of
variations in driving habits, service
practices and differences in road
characteristics and climate.
These grades are molded on the
side-walls of passenger vehicle tires.
The tires available as standard or
optional equipment on Kia vehicles
may vary with respect to grade.
Maintenance
Traction - AA, A, B & C
The traction grades, from highest to
lowest, are AA, A, B and C. The
grades represent the tires ability to
stop on wet pavement as measured
under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of
asphalt and concrete. A tire marked
C may have poor traction performance.
Temperature -A, B & C
The temperature grades are A (the
highest), B and C. The grades represent the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified
indoor laboratory test wheel.
Sustained high temperature can
cause the material of the tires to
degenerate and reduce tires life, and
excessive temperature can lead to
sudden tires failure. Grades A and B
represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than
the minimum required by the law.
WARNING - Tire
temperature
The temperature grade for this
tire is established for a tire that
is properly inflated and not
overloaded. Excessive speed,
underinflation, or excessive
loading, either separately or in
combination, can cause heat
build-up and possible sudden
tire failure. This can cause loss
of vehicle control and serious
injury or death.

Speed Rating: An alphanumeric
code assigned to a tire indicating the
maximum speed at which a tire can
operate.
Traction: The friction between the
tire and the road surface. The
amount of grip provided.
Tread: The portion of a tire that
comes into contact with the road.
Treadwear Indicators: Narrow
bands, sometimes called "wear
bars," that show across the tread of a
tire when only 2/32 inch of tread
remains.
UTQGS: Uniform Tire Quality
Grading Standards, a tire information
system that provides consumers with
ratings for a tire's traction, temperature and treadwear. Ratings are
determined by tire manufacturers
using government testing procedures. The ratings are molded into
the sidewall of the tire.
Vehicle Capacity Weight: The number of designated seating positions
multiplied by 68 kg (150 lbs.) plus the
rated cargo and luggage load.
Vehicle Maximum Load on the
Tire: Load on an individual tire due to
curb and accessory weight plus
maximum occupant and cargo
weight.
Vehicle Normal Load on the Tire:
That load on an individual tire that is
determined by distributing to each
axle its share of the curb weight,
accessory weight, and normal occupant weight and driving by 2.
Vehicle Placard: A label permanently attached to a vehicle showing the
original equipment tire size and recommended inflation pressure.
All season tires
Kia specifies all season tires on
some models to provide good performance for use all year round,
including snowy and icy road conditions. All season tires are identified
by ALL SEASON and/or M+S (Mud
and Snow) on the tire sidewall. Snow
tires have better snow traction than
all season tires and may be more
appropriate in some areas.
Summer tires
Kia specifies summer tires on some
models to provide superior performance on dry roads. Summer tire performance is substantially reduced in
snow and ice. Summer tires do not
have the tire traction rating M+S
(Mud and Snow) on the tire side wall.
if you plan to operate your vehicle in
snowy or icy conditions. Kia recommends the use of snow tires or all
season tires on all four wheels.
Snow tires
If you equip your car with snow tires,
they should be the same size and
have the same load capacity as the
original tires. Snow tires should be
installed on all four wheels; otherwise, poor handling may result.
Snow tires should carry 28 kPa (4
psi) more air pressure than the pressure recommended for the standard
tires on the tire label on the driver's
side of the center pillar, or up to the
maximum pressure shown on the tire
sidewall, whichever is less.
Do not drive faster than 120 km/h (75
mph) when your car is equipped with
snow tires.

LUBRICANT SPECIFICATIONS
Recommended lubricants
To help achieve proper engine and powertrain performance and durability, use
only lubricants of the proper quality. The
correct lubricants also help promote
engine efficiency that results in improved
fuel economy.
Engine oils labeled Energy Conserving
Oil are now available. Along with other
additional benefits, they contribute to fuel
economy by reducing the amount of fuel
necessary to overcome engine friction.
Often, these improvements are difficult to
measure in everyday driving, but in a
year’s time, they can offer significant cost
and energy savings.

When choosing an oil, consider the range of temperature your vehicle will be operated in before the next oil change. Proceed to select the recommended oil viscosity
from the chart.
CAUTION
Always be sure to clean the area
around any filler plug, drain plug, or
dipstick before checking or draining any lubricant. This is especially
important in dusty or sandy areas
and when the vehicle is used on
unpaved roads. Cleaning the plug
and dipstick areas will prevent dirt
and grit from entering the engine
and other mechanisms that could
be damaged.

1. For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of a viscosity grade SAE 5W20,5W-30 (API SL / ILSAC GF-3). However, the engine oil is not available in your country,
select the proper engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
Engine oil viscosity (thickness) has an
effect on fuel economy and cold weather
operating (starting and oil flow). Lower
viscosity engine oils can provide better
fuel economy and cold weather performance, however, higher viscosity engine
oils are required for satisfactory lubrication in hot weather. Using oils of any viscosity other than those recommended
could result in engine damage.

EXTERIOR CARE
Exterior general caution
It is very important to follow the label
directions when using any chemical
cleaner or polish. Read all warning and
caution statements that appear on the
label.
Finish maintenance
Washing
To help protect your vehicle’s finish from
rust and deterioration, wash it thoroughly
and frequently at least once a month with
lukewarm or cold water.
If you use your vehicle for off-road driving, you should wash it after each offroad trip. Pay special attention to the
removal of any accumulation of salt, dirt,
mud, and other foreign materials. Make
sure the drain holes in the lower edges of
the doors and rocker panels are kept
clear and clean.
Insects, tar, tree sap, bird droppings,
industrial pollution and similar deposits
can damage your vehicle’s finish if not
removed immediately.
Even prompt washing with plain water
may not completely remove all these
deposits. A mild soap, safe for use on
painted surfaces, may be used.
After washing, rinse the vehicle thoroughly with lukewarm or cold water. Do
not allow soap to dry on the finish.
CAUTION
Do not use strong soap, chemical
detergents or hot water, and do not
wash the vehicle in direct sunlight
or when the body of the vehicle is
warm.
WARNING
After washing the vehicle, test the
brakes while driving slowly to see if
they have been affected by water. If
braking performance is impaired,
dry the brakes by applying them
lightly while maintaining a slow forward speed.
7 38
OJB037800
CAUTION
• Water washing in the engine compartment including high pressure
water washing may cause the failure of electrical circuits located in
the engine compartment.
• Never allow water or other liquids
to come in contact with electrical/electronic components inside
the vehicle as this may damage
them.
Maintenance
Waxing
Wax the vehicle when water will no
longer bead on the paint.
Always wash and dry the vehicle before
waxing. Use a good quality liquid or
paste wax, and follow the manufacturer’s
instructions. Wax all metal trim to protect
it and to maintain its luster.
Removing oil, tar, and similar materials
with a spot remover will usually strip the
wax from the finish. Be sure to re-wax
these areas even if the rest of the vehicle
does not yet need waxing.
✽ NOTICE
Finish damage repair
Bright-metal maintenance
Deep scratches or stone chips in the
painted surface must be repaired
promptly. Exposed metal will quickly rust
and may develop into a major repair
expense.
• To remove road tar and insects, use a
tar remover, not a scraper or other
sharp object.
• To protect the surfaces of bright-metal
parts from corrosion, apply a coating of
wax or chrome preservative and rub to
a high luster.
• During winter weather or in coastal
areas, cover the bright metal parts with
a heavier coating of wax or preservative. If necessary, coat the parts with
non-corrosive petroleum jelly or other
protective compound.
✽ NOTICE
If your vehicle is damaged and requires
any metal repair or replacement, be sure
the body shop applies anti-corrosion
materials to the parts repaired or
replaced.
• Wiping dust or dirt off the body with
a dry cloth will scratch the finish.
• Do not use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or strong detergents containing
highly alkaline or caustic agents on
chrome-plated or anodized aluminum
parts. This may result in damage to
the protective coating and cause discoloration or paint deterioration.
7 39
Maintenance
Underbody maintenance
Corrosive materials used for ice and
snow removal and dust control may collect on the underbody. If these materials
are not removed, accelerated rusting can
occur on underbody parts such as the
fuel lines, frame, floor pan and exhaust
system, even though they have been
treated with rust protection.
Thoroughly flush the vehicle underbody
and wheel openings with lukewarm or
cold water once a month, after off-road
driving and at the end of each winter. Pay
special attention to these areas because
it is difficult to see all the mud and dirt. It
will do more harm than good to wet down
the road grime without removing it. The
lower edges of doors, rocker panels, and
frame members have drain holes that
should not be allowed to clog with dirt;
trapped water in these areas can cause
rusting.
7 40
WARNING
After washing the vehicle, test the
brakes while driving slowly to see if
they have been affected by water. If
braking performance is impaired,
dry the brakes by applying them
lightly while maintaining a slow forward speed.
Aluminum wheel maintenance
The aluminum wheels are coated with a
clear protective finish.
• Do not use any abrasive cleaner, polishing compound, solvent, or wire
brushes on aluminum wheels. They
may scratch or damage the finish.
• Use only a mild soap or neutral detergent, and rinse thoroughly with water.
Also, be sure to clean the wheels after
driving on salted roads. This helps prevent corrosion.
• Avoid washing the wheels with highspeed car wash brushes.
• Do not use any acid detergent. It may
damage and corrode the aluminum
wheels coated with a clear protective
finish.
Maintenance
INTERIOR CARE
Interior general precautions
Prevent caustic solutions such as perfume and cosmetic oil from contacting
the dashboard because they may cause
damage or discoloration. If they do contact the dashboard, wipe them off immediately. See the instructions that follow for
the proper way to clean vinyl.
Cleaning the upholstery and interior trim
Vinyl
Remove dust and loose dirt from vinyl
with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.
Clean vinyl surfaces with a vinyl cleaner.
Fabric
Remove dust and loose dirt from fabric
with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner.
Clean with a mild soap solution recommended for upholstery or carpets.
Remove fresh spots immediately with a
fabric spot cleaner. If fresh spots do not
receive immediate attention, the fabric
can be stained and its color can be
affected. Also, its fire-resistant properties
can be reduced if the material is not
properly maintained.
CAUTION
Using anything but recommended
cleaners and procedures may affect
the fabric’s appearance and fireresistant properties.
Cleaning the lap/shoulder belt
webbing
Clean the belt webbing with any mild
soap solution recommended for cleaning
upholstery or carpet. Follow the instructions provided with the soap. Do not
bleach or re-dye the webbing because
this may weaken it.
Cleaning the interior window
glass
If the interior glass surfaces of the vehicle become fogged (that is, covered with
an oily, greasy or waxy film), they should
be cleaned with glass cleaner. Follow the
directions on the glass cleaner container.
✽ NOTICE
Do not scrape or scratch the inside of
the rear window. This may result in
damage to the rear window defroster
grid.
