Kia Cerato 2012 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Cerato here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Loud tappet noise after servicing

    The tappets are not adjustable, and it’s not normal that they are noisy. It’s hard to know what has happened as a result of it standing for so long. Have a mechanic check the tappets.

  • Kia Cerato engine pinging

    It should run on 91-octane fuel without pinging; the knock sensor should ensure that it doesn't occur. Running it on higher-octane fuels makes it less prone to pinging, and again the knock sensor should have it running on the edge of pinging without actually doing it. I would keep the pressure on Kia to fix the problem, and at the same time get the help of an independent mechanic.

  • Can dealers change a sale price?

    I don’t see any reason why it shouldn’t be allowable, the price could have been a sale price for a period of time, and went up when the offer finished.

  • Cruze or Cerato?

    The Cerato is good choice and the long warranty makes it an easy decision. I get lots of complaints about the Cruze and would not recommend it.
