Checklist when collecting your K5.
1. Check the accessories (Lighter, Ashtray Cup, iPod cable, tools in the trunk).
2. Service Book and Manual.
3. Check for dents and scratches (Interior and exterior).
4. Check the details in the grant and insurance.
5. Check the coolant, hydraulics and engine oil level.
6. Check the switches.
7. Check the tyre pressure. New K5 always over inflate. (Please make sure front 33psi back 32psi)
8. Check the fuel level.


Vehicle Break-In Process.
No special break-in period is needed. By folowing a few simple precaustion for the first 600 miles (1,000 km) you may add to the performance, economy and life of your vehicle.
• Do not race the engine
• While driving, keep your engine speed (rpm, or revolutions per minute) between 2,000 rpm and 4,000rpm.
• Do not maintain a single speed for long periods of time, either fast or slow. Varying engine speed is needed to perperly break-in the engine.
• Avoid hard stops, except in emergencies, to allow the brakes to seat properly.
• Don't let the engine idle longer than 3 minutes at one time.
• Don't tow a traler during the first 1,200 miles (2,000 km) of operation.

5 years Unlimited Mileage Warranty

I just got my warranty terms but its not very clear. The exceptions reveal something but then again leaves some questions unanswered. I think we need to check and clarify directly with Naza Kia HQ.

Its about ensuring all your moving parts in the engine are sufficiently worked to get optimum long term performance. Breaking in the car doesnt mean driving slow. You can still go as fast as 140kmph but most importantly is you must not go for high rev's or hard braking. Everything must be gentle & gradual for the first 1,000km at least.

Thanks bugg, for posting all the details. Very helpful.

In the warranty statement above it says that the vehicle is covered by warranty claims agains manufacturing defects. Take for example the radiator which one of the items mentioned in the list of items covered. It is quite normal for the radiator to develop leaks/problems as a result of wear & tear. If a leak occurs when the car is 4.5 years old, will Kia be obliged to change it for FOC ? Same applies for other similar parts as well.

The reason I would like to be as clear as possible about this is to protect the owner against the possible ignorance of the Service centers etc.

Based on my personal experience so far, Naza Kia is not particular about warranty terms. Even if a part is not under warranty, they feel obliged to change. I think they are more concerned about negative feedback.

I have been fascinated with the K5 from the first day I laid eyes on it. I have very rarely taken to a car the way that I have been with it. The T, H and N pales in comparison to its great looks.

There are only a couple of units in Kluang, Johor where I live and they are real head-turners.

I am still waiting for a car to be available to test drive. Will then place an order for the white color one. Am told that the waiting period is now 2-3 weeks but knowing the SA, I will only believe it when I see it.

I've spent quite a bit of time reading all the posts from V2 onwards and I get a very positive feeling from all of it. Thanks for sharing all the info and your experience. smile.gif

The more they do this the happier i am cuz it shows just how threatened these ppl are by the K5. It really goes to show, that the K5 is really giving the Japs a run for their money. The sales are starting to show and although they may not be on par but slowly the Jap pie is being eroded by not only the Koreans but also VW.

Keep it up. rclxms.gif

have a good sleep tonight, and do spend some time to re-read your statement above about:
1) how threatened ppl are (specifically) by the K5.. really?
2) and that is "goes to show that (specifically) K5 is really giving the Japs a run for their money".. seriously?

and are you referring to me as the thread hijacker or those before?
hey, those fellas are even discussing about honda city cvt technicalities in the inspira thread and no one gives a rat's a** about it.. nor, if you do have the time, read through & see if anyone has made any claim about how 'threatened' other drivers are, may it be Inspira, Preve or what not.. geeeez bro

and a note to all K5-ers.. hey, the car is at no fault at all.. it's a lovely designed car.. but for anyone to come out and say it's the 'best', whoooah, calm down mate.. but ahead of its class? heck, why not? which class, they didnt say.. to each his/her own blush.gif
