Kia Picanto City car

Still considering a new small car - I don't suppose anyone has one of these? It looks very inviting, but I'm looking for user reviews rather than the Kia website details before I have a test drive.

Sorry.Bing.alau - can't stretch to an up!

exdragon. This is a very good forum for owners of VW up!'s like me. Have a look at it and you may find a link to a forum for your model of Kia Picanto. Some of the points discussed probably apply to your model anyway.

Sorry if that link didn't work. But you will probably find a suitable forum if you google for one.

Thanks, chaps, I'd spotted the Kia one. Yet another login/password/security question etc to remember, I suppose!

Quickbeam, exdragon. That is the up! forum that I use. It amazes me some of the things people get up to in order to improve or alter the looks of their particular vehicle. But it is a good forum for technical problems if and when they arrive. The only thing I have altered in mine is an upgrade of headlight bulbs, not strictly necessary as the lights were good. But I like plenty of light and so looked for advice on this forum. Then took it.

Must have a nose at the Kia forum now.

Thanks exdragon, I'll hopefully be ordering mine in the next month or so. Happy motoring, you will have to let us know how your car is when you get it, not long to wait now....

Got the car on Monday night - so far, it's lovely! Haven't had a chance to try it out on the motorway yet, but it's very comfortable and easy to drive on the short trips I've done. Now I'm just paranoid in case anything damages it. I fear I may become one of those drivers who straddles the white lines instead of parking neatly between them.

exdragon. When parking in supermarkets, get as far away from the entrance/exit as possible. There's usually plenty of space further away. For some reason the people in a hurry always park near the entrances/exits. Then they leap in, not caring about anybody else's vehicle. The extra little walk is good exercise and you will be pushing a trolley probably so no weight to carry. O.K. it may take a few minutes more, but it is worth it to save the bumps and scuffs from other people's trolleys and car doors etc. I'm lucky as I have an invalidity pass and normally get more room nearer the doors, but if there's none vacant I get over in to the corner and walk. It's not as if it were a mile or so to the entrance is it?
