How about free?

Seriously, all you need to do is register with the Kia Tech website. Full, free access to all materials including manuals & TSB's. A great service from Kia.

Kia Global Information System (KGIS)

Signed up and looked around.......I don't see any FSM listings though. It would be amazing if a Factory supplied online access to FSMs.

Anyone? PDF Factory Service Manuel??

Sorry that wasn't what you're after. I'm not aware of any printed materials, but I'm not very familiar with Kia in general.

I'm interested in finding info specific to our five-door. I'd like to find diagrams of interior trim on the five-door since I've discovered a nasty rattle. The online Kia stuff only has info related to general/common features among the various models (ie coupe/sedan).

If I find anything, I'll be sure to pass it along...

What exactly are you looking for? KGIS provides most repair processes and disassembly/assembly procedures.

Steering Wheel Removal

I did find some basic diagnostic/service stuff on there, but nothing of what I need yet

EDIT: FOUND IT THANKS GUYS!

It's not easy to navigate because the world no longer uses IE6. KGIS is made for IE6 some of the options don't show on any other browser. I keep a VM with IE6 just for sites like this. KGIS uses a lot of out dated tech.

SPOILER ALERT! Great ad for Lee Kia!
Never heard of 'em. I see no ads whatsoever on that site (I guess because I run an ad blocker). If you have a better answer, please share it.

Dude, you need to get an ad blocker and check that your browser hasn't been hijacked. I see no such thing. For me, all links go to different parts of the manual as they should. I've been using it for a couple of years without issue and have never seen any ads whatsoever.

Didn't say the site was a bad one...it is definitely a dealer's site. I get the ads when I try searching anything else (like the 2010-2013 manual.

Ok, I did some experimenting. When I turn off my ad blocker, I do get ads for a lot of different car dealers in my local area (not Lee Kia). So there is some targeted advertising. But it isn't a specific dealer's site. I did a whois search and see that the domain itself is Russian owned. Then I turned my ad blocker back on, and all the ads disappeared.
