Hello KunaDave, I'm assuming that by your screen name that you live outside of the Kuna area. I used to live in Nampa. Now currently living in Ohio, hoping to move back to my home state someday. . . :( Anyway, I too am not a huge fan of the emergency "repair" kit, but at least it will be easier for my wife to use. I would say repair the tire, then drive to a place where you have signal, and make the call. Speaking of cell phones, if you haven't corrected it already, follow the owner's manual or you can do like I do and just surf the radio options, but you can shut the car's bluetooth option off. You press the "audio" knob, and scroll it to turn until you see the "Phone" option, and you'll find your bluetooth settings in there. However you might also want to take it to a dealer for a firmware update check or something, because I use bluetooth headseats as I travel in a company car for work. Only my wife syncs her phone with the Kia radio, and it never gives me any hastle or says anything when I don't sync up for the occasional times I drive it. Otherwise good luck. Being from Idaho, i have to say, as much as I love my Kia, I would have a truck on hand anyway. Too many places to go and enjoy life w/o one. :-) Hope this sorta helps.Report it
BTW the key is huge too, I hang mine on a carabiner and clip it to my belt loop.Report it
