For starters, do you have the eco light "on"? It also doesn't operate when cruise control is on. Speed control for the radio seems to get louder around 40 mph. It doesn't get as loud as I have seen in GM cars. Hope this helps...

I had the eco light not work once in my car but it was only that once. to get the light to work again i just had to turn off the car then turn it back on. The eco light works when the cruise control is on.

correct me if I'm wrong. I didn't think the Eco light / option is available with the manual transmission.

According to your signature you have a 6sp koup. And I don't believe it's an
option. Maybe I'm wrong or just drinking too much juice. Lol

LOL no no beast thats what I thought too.. but it was in the book and my service tech just seemed to not say hey dum dum thats not a option so maybe Its a miss understanding you might be right... I guess that would make since why it never worked ..

but I have to say I worry about my local dealer if they just brought up the vin number today and did not catch that.. geeez well anyway thxs Beast now there is just the one issue volume control.. that makes me feel better some how

no problem at all. Tell the dealer to do some reading. Lol. I would be concerned if they told you your car had that feature

I have a 6sp sx sedan and it's def not an option in my car.

Anyway keep us posted on what your dealer tells you n

Ok guys got back from the dealer a few hours ago. Lol it took 4 guys to figure out that indeed I do not have eco.. I was told by one of the top sales guys that some cars he's sold have had eco even when they were manual of course I don't know it thats true.

On the stereo issue I have a open case going now.. it seems my car is not the only one to have had this issue with the speed contorl for the volume..
so we will see if kia does something about that or not?

yeah I think he is trying to save face by saying that... It's not an option for MT. But oh well... what can you expect.

Anyway, the eco light is only to know if you are saving gaz. even if it's on or off, it's just a light saying ''Hey man, you're saving gaz right now!!''

Good point... I use the instant mpg screen on my trip to see how I a
doing with mpg. It's live and when I look down an it's low I tend to let up a tad. Lol

Guess it's basically the same as the light but shows you approx mpg

Thanks for the info I was wondering why my eco light will not work with the cruise set. As for the speed volume it does not work like the GM that I traded in on my koupe. But i am getting used to it.
