Aftermarket cruise control on a Kia Rondo?

Asked by Paul Mastrogiannis

The Kia Rondo I have just bought didn't come with a cruise control option and I'm wondering if you could advise any aftermarket installers and whether you would consider this to be a useful add on. When I asked the dealer he was non-committal about what parts of the warranty might be affected by the add-on cruise control.

We checked with Kia and their spokesman confirmed that Kia doesn’t offer a cruise control, either from the factory or a dealer-fit aftermarket option. We were also told that while there are systems out in the market that are suitable for the Rondo, Kia does not endorse any of them. They say there has been some evidence of problems with aftermarket systems, not just on Kia cars. They’re usually electrical problems due to fitment and connection to the electrical and mechanical throttle systems. As an aftermarket system is not Kia developed it would not be warranted and could affect warranty on other systems. Any modification to the car as a result of the installation of any aftermarket accessory or component has an affect on the new car warranty, so you need to be aware of what would be modified by the installer before agreeing to proceed with the work. You also need to use a competent person to do the work.
