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!
Thank you for choosing a Kia vehicle. When you require service, remember that your dealer knows your vehicle best. Your dealer has factory-trained technicians, recommended special tools, genuine Kia replacement parts and is dedicated to your complete satisfaction. Because subsequent owners require this important information as well, this publication should remain with the vehicle if it is sold. This manual will familiarize you with operational, maintenance and safety information about your new vehicle. It is supplemented by a Warranty and Consumer Information manual that provides important information on all warranties regarding your vehicle. If your vehicle is equipped with an audio system, you will also have a Kia Integrated Audio System manual explaining its operation. We urge you to read these publications carefully and follow the recommendations to help assure enjoyable and safe operation of your new vehicle. Kia offers a great variety of options, components and features for its various models.
