  9. so my passenger seat air bag sensor is not working it is apparently a common problem with kia cars. In my case i believe its due to water spilling on the seat damaging the sensor pad. I was wondering if its at all possible to have the passenger air bag always on instead of relying on the sensor. If not ideas on best place to find a new pad that is not pricey?
  10. Hi there, I have a KIA Sportage GT-line, which I have purchased mid-2017. My question is regarding the powered driver's seat and if the 'issue' that I am expecting is actually a defect or something that I have to live with because it is 'normal'. When turning into corners, the seat moves lightly to the side and I can fee a little click of the seat. Example: When turning left, the seat might move very slightly to the right and I can feel a click of the seat. When turning left again, the seat does not move. Only when then turning right, the seat might move to the left with the same slight movement and click. I have been to my local dealer multiple times, they apparently changed the seat base, which unfortunately did not fix the issue. I have had multiple cars with powered front seats, but have never experienced this issue before. I also had the change to drive a friend's KIA Sportage GT-line of the same year, his car did not have the issue. Can you please advise and let me know what to do? Many thanks, Nikolai

  13. Hey, so I'm a college guy, 24 years old, 6 ft. tall and have a slipped disk in my back due to a car accident almost 2 yr ago. I need to commute to college almost every day that takes about an hour and some change back and forth. I am basically looking for a manual transmission vehicle with either good seats/lumbar support that is easy to work/learn on, so far I have boiled it down to a Honda Accord because I love the seats since I don't really fit too well in a civic si (haven't been able to try out the type r) a Subaru Outback 2010 or newer because of the redesign/seats/lumbar support and overall look. what are some of the issues I should look out for? Are there any other manual cars I should be looking into? I was also looking into a Kia Rio. I am not looking to drop jaws wherever I go I just need a car to basically get me from point A to point B. I also not a fan of technology for the most part. And lastly, it would be fantastic to find a car that can also house 4 people comfortably who are also roughly the same height as me. any suggestions?

Thanks!
