#360 of 409 Spare Tire/Wheel?
Jan 15, 2009 (3:55 pm)
I just bought a used Rondo from an auction, and yesterday I noticed that it doesn't have a spare!
Can anyone tell me if there's anything special I need to look for, or will a spare from any Kia fit?
BTW, it's an '07 EX 4-cyl model--great deal

Spare tire size T125/80D16
I'd try checking salvage yards.

I know this may sound weird, but did you think to go to a local Kia dealer and order a new spare tire? That may save you time and money rather than searching all over the place...

My last five or six cars, the spare tire never set foot on pavement. If you travel in unpopulated areas often, I would worry about having a spare tire. Just my opinion. (Knock on wood)
#364 of 409 Check engine light

I bought a new 2008 Rondo. The check engine light starts at about 400 miles even before I filled it with fuel.

A typical problem with many new cars. Our Rondo experienced this too, but we realized it was simply a loose gas cap - you must turn the cap at least 3 "clicks" for it to seal properly. It may take a couple restarts for the light to go off.
We love out Rondo after 18 months and 25,000 kms - you will love yours!

If re-tightening the gas cap doesn't help you should have the trouble code pulled.
I've heard a lot of complaints about the mass air flow sensor being defective on new models.
#367 of 409 Key fob programming
Apr 17, 2009 (4:50 pm)
I just recently purchased a used 2008 Rondo with 13,414 miles. When I got it, it only had one key fob. Does any one know how to program a new Fob? Thanks in advance for any useable input.
#368 of 409 2010 Rondo

Every new car magazine and even the fliers I am getting from Kia with all the new 2010 vehicles Not one of them include any mention of a 2010 Kia Rondo. Is it because it may not be produced anymore? Is the new Sorento going to take over the Rondo's spot? Does anyone have any information on this?

Interesting. The Rondo is based on the Optima, and the Optima will be redesigned for 2011 MY. Maybe something new is in the works??
