You are in the Kia Rondo
What is this discussion about?
Kia Rondo, Wagon
Sep 10, 2007 (5:25 pm)
Just thought I'd update my 'quest' for my brackets. I ran an ad on Craigslist in the UK and got a response that stated "how much are you willing to pay for your alleged brackets (wink, wink)" sheesh men and their minds... get out of the gutter.
BUT i think i might have a lead with a distant "god-cousin" lol that lives in Belgium. I emailed and am anxious to hear his response.
I LOVE my Rondo btw... and i think my friend is going to buy one also. AND I impressed my Cadillac driving step-father... what more can a girl ask for!

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I was up in Virginia visiting my son. I heard back from my friend in England and he called two dealers including the one who originally got the brackets for me but neither dealer seems interested in dealing with an overseas buyer for parts.

I called Kia in the US and it turns out that they do sell the security cover. I was told that the cover is listed as a part rather than an accessory. Kia gave me the part number and I called my local Kia dealer who had never heard of the part but ordered it for me. It is gray, and retractable rather than a solid one piece cover, and I like this. It cost $347 and the part number is 85910-1D000S8. I haven't had the time to install mine yet but it looks like it will install without any additional parts, and no alterations need to be made to the car. Hope this helps.

I'm sorry to have to break the bad news to you, but if you've followed the threads on the security cover, www.KiaPartsPeople.com sells the retractable rear cover in 3 different colors to match any RONDO interior for $204 plus shipping. If yours installs without any additional parts then you have the 5 seater Rondo. The same cover fits the 7 seater but additional brackets are needed.
Here's the link to the covers:

asbruce based on your security cover cost of $347, sounds like you are from Canada as the KIA Canada website lists it at $341.84 as an accessory. It would help if you could fill out your location in your profile.
Crewzin, is right it will only fit without modification if you have a five seater model as the slots for the cover are already built into the side wall. Otherwise it won't work without the special brackets, that at the moment only seem to be available from the UK.
