What Have You Done With Your Car Today?

506 posts in this topic

 

Drove my friends 2013 Kia Rio today, quiet and comfortable car to drive but the gear box was rubbery, steering vague and lacked on centre weight - nice for the short drive but much much happier in my Fiesta! (even if it is an 06)

I totally get you there - I really like the looks of the Kia Rio and considered buying one but had the same experience as you.. and the instrument panel looks really strange to me. I'm so happy that I went with the Fiesta instead, I love that little fun car! :)

Washed and polished looks so good. Next plan when a little warmer is to clay bar, and full wax treatment and clean inside wheels and wax them up.

Gave the car a proper wax with some simoniz the first time I've ever applied it after washing the car took me well over 2 hours that stuff don't half make you work!

Shattered.

Nope radio works perfect and dab works just the same as it did too.

Isn't the DAB aerial separate to the one on the roof?

I wasn't there when he took it off sorry but when he pug it back on it just looked like he stick it on I know on older cars you just heated them up because they were just a sticky pad holding them on and my sunstrip is on the inside
