When using a Kia automobile, there are quite a lot of factors involved that the owner should be aware about and some of these have been mentioned here according to the separate components of the car.

POWER STEERING BRAKE SYSTEM
If the engine is not running or is turned off while driving the Kia car, the power assistance for the steering will not be functional. Steering the Kia car would become harder to operate.

The power steering system of Kia vehicle is designed to provide power assist while driving to operate the steering wheel with light force. When the steering wheel is operated repeatedly or continuously while parking or driving the Kia vehicle at a very low speed, the power assist for the steering wheel will be reduced. This is to prevent overheating of the power steering system of the Kia vehicle and protect it from getting damaged. While the power assist is reduced, steering wheel operation of the Kia car will become heavy. When the temperature of the power steering system goes down, the power assist level will return to normal. Avoid repeating such steering wheel operations that could cause the power steering system of the Kia vehicle to overheat. You may hear a sound when the steering wheel of the Kia vehicle is operated quickly. However, this is not a malfunction.

If the power steering warning light PS illuminates while the engine of the Kia automobile is running, it may indicate the power steering system is not functioning properly and may need servicing. Have the power steering system checked by a Kia dealer.

BRAKE SYSTEM
The brake system of the Kia vehicle has two separate hydraulic circuits. If one circuit malfunctions, you will still have braking at two wheels.

BRAKE PRECAUTIONS
Vacuum assisted brakes
The brake booster aids braking by using engine vacuum. If the engine of the stops, you can stop the Kia vehicle by depressing the brake pedal. However, greater foot pressure on the brake pedal will be required to stop the Kia vehicle and stopping distance will be longer.

CRUISE CONTROL
The cruise control of Kia vehicles includes:
1. ACCEL/RES switch
2. COAST/SET switch
3. CANCEL switch
4. ON/OFF switch

PRECAUTIONS ON CRUISE CONTROL
If the cruise control system of the Kia automobile malfunctions, it cancels automatically. The SET indicator light in the instrument panel of the Kia car then blinks to warn the driver. If the SET indicator light blinks, turn the cruise control switch off and have the system checked by a Kia dealer.

PARKING/PARKING ON HILLS
Firmly apply the parking brake. Manual transmission model requires the driver to place the shift lever of Kia car in the R (Reverse) position. When parking on an uphill grade, place the shift lever of the Kia car in 1st gear. Turn the wheels into the curb and move the Kia vehicle forward until the curb side wheel gently touches the curb. Turn the ignition key to the LOCK position and remove the key.

Considering all such factors, the driver becomes more familiar with his Kia vehicle and enhances his driving experience.
