Great little Van

published

I bought my Van a few years ago and I would guess it has had a few different owners. The noise in the cab can be fixed by just putting gear behind the seat. Has given me no trouble and as it was a pretty cheap van it has been good value for money.I have traveled the state and further into some interesting camping spots without any problems. Had a few electrical issues when I bought it but soon got them sorted. All in all, I love this little Van . Its great to drive, easy to park, fast enough and good mileage as its Diesel.

CANT COMPLAIN..GOOD LITTLE VAN

published

I'm the 2nd?3rd owner, its a campervan,now at 209,000Km,,easy to drive, good turning circle,only paid 7G 4 yrs ago 2013..its not a Ferrari up hills but Perth is quite flat. No probs yet, changed diff & gear oil ,& eng oil ev 10,000Km. city gets 9-10L/100k, country 7.5-8.5L/100k if you keep under 90kmh
I put some soundproofing stuff over the engine, & touch up any small rustspots..a tradie nearby has done 500Km in his van ! Inside front tyres wear down first, will swap with rear wheels later..cant do anything about the set camber.

Battery Hole

published

For the most part this Van is a dream to drive and handles really well, loud as its diesel and the engine is right under you.

the battery cavity opening is too small to easily get the battery in and out, i suggest taking 10 minutes to remove the drivers seat from the car so you can access it easier and not destroy your clothes with battery acid... or tape the breather holes on the battery first cause you must angle the battery to get it in.

I love my van

published

I bought my preggio with 166,000 mm on the clock and are turning it into a camper to travel Australia. It runs beautifully. I had a full service done and the injected needed a little adjustment and it runs even better.

You do sit very high in the driver seat and tall people will be looking through the blue tint in the windscreen. The door won't stay open when you're trying to get in and the little step to get in. Is in an awkward spot. There is not a lot of room between legs and steering wheel.

But over all it's a great van and would recommend it :)

Great van

published

Had my 2004 pregio since new after 11 years and 580,000 K my van is going great. Sure u will fix the wear and tear items and the altinator isn't reliable as I've either repaired or replaced 8 in my time but after 580,000 I just replaced my first clutch. Very happy with it and am looking everywhere for another with low ks

Terrible service

published

The salesman was enough to put me off buying the van, he was very rude and disrespectful. The van wasn't described accurately in the add and when I spoke to the salesman on the phone he told me that it was in fantastic condition. I drove 60 klm from home to see the van and when I did I was disappointed. It had dents on both sides, rust spots on the sliding door and the passenger side electric window control was just hanging there. I would never recommend the car yard to anyone

Good

published

Pleasantly surprised at the car like ride and value for money. A bit noisy and thirsty at highway speeds, more at home around town. Feels very solid. Support from local Kia dealer has been very good.
Cheap to buy, comfortable on the road, the sealed cabin area makes the heating/cooling much more effective and reduces noise although engine is quite noisy.
More awkward to get in & out of compared to similar vans. Have had some electrical problems and the brakes are DANGEROUS ! The immobiliser/keyless entry has a mind of it's own.

Terrible

published

As an Electrician that is employed by a company that has a fleet of vans which include Kia Pregios and Mitsubishi Express' the Mitsubishi's are a far better van. The most worrying thing about Pregio's is apparently the camber angles of the front wheels can't be adjusted so the inside of front tyres get worn down to the wire while the outside of the front tyres look new. I have seen this on alot of Pregios. Driving for over half an hour makes you feel like screaming to block out the Diesel chatter.
Plenty of loading area, CD player, electric windows.
Engine is awful, very noisy, gutless, camber angle of front wheels.

Cheap for a reason, not really great value when you consider how much fuel it uses. Bad build quality, and electricals are a joke. Just try to get that bloody keyless entry to behave in a normal way!!
Cheap and good comfortable ride
How the hell do you change a headlight globe!!!Keyless entry works when it feels like itCabin window reflection is terrible and dangerousBrakes WAY too spongyBloody door-open gong annoyingPassenger seat angle non adjustableRadio/CD player pathetic (CD's constantly jump)Uses too much fuel for a dieselTerrible tyre wearExtremely noisy engineMOST OF ALL : It seems you have to disassemble the entire front end just to change a headlight globe! Does anyone know how to do this?
