Also start stop is awful... 5mph or below engine just dies .. takes a full second to turn back on... who designed this shit?! Has to be turned off every time you start the car, naturally.

Kia completely copied VW gayges... identical to the mk6... :notbad:

Stereo is not bad... even though its the poverty base model, its passable.

Seats are decent...

Steering is fking dead.

So ... I am sitting in a Starbucks waiting for an irish bar to open... as it is holding my cell phone prisoner from last night.

I am in a rental Kia Sportage, DIESEL :manuel: WAGON! (CUV) As the gods intended...

This has got to be one of the easiest car to drive with a stick... I am sitting on the wrong side of the car... shifting with my left hand... going through 500 year old screens and parking garages where people ram right against my ass when I pull up to get the ticket... No problems... not 1 stall...

But man this thing is pretty gutless as expected and the powerband is extremely short... 2000-3500... redline is 4500 but it sounds like a rattling box of nails above 3500... so :nope:
Gears are extremely easy to find... clutch is super forgiving.. but it almost feels disconnected. Overall really :notbad:

Good luck finding a :manuel: diesel CUV in the states... :lolgasm:

No pics as I don't have my phone yet... i hope these fucks open the bar soon. :oops:

:update: Got my phone... and Starbucks got flagged as SPAM.... couldn't post... :wtf:

I’ve never minded the :manuel: in traffic. I’ve sat in it pretty routinely in LA and SD in heavy traffic and it was never an issue or something I regretted.

So I got 39.2 mpg hand calculated, over 300 miles. Which is better than my golf would have done. And this thing is slightly bigger and a whole lot slower. So guess it makes sense.

He's too cool to be tired of anything. He just left without a word.
