I have a 2010 koup sx and the factory sticker said it's supposed to have a push start engine button and smart key but the car doesn't have it installed. i talked to the dealership and they said to talk to kia directly...has this happened to anyone else? i recently contacted them and am waiting for a reply.

As far as I know no 2010 has push button in US or Canada. I do believe overseas Singapore and/or Phillipeans they do

Yea the 2010's don't have push button with the smart key. They added this for the 2011's.

Yea i did some searching and found out that it wasn't offered, but it was still on the factory sticker. So kia did some kind of misrepresentation and apparently, according to my dad who's knowledgeable about this kind of stuff, they're accountable for it.

Idk..

Honestly if it was on your dealer sticker or you options list (the window sticker) then
maybe you have something there.
If so I'd call Kia and see what they do.. "never hurts too try"

sometimes the window stickers have errors on them. once they have been notice by kia the dealerships are sent corrected ones to put on the car. im a salesmen at kia and thats what happens some times.

thats understandable but kia didnt notice it and still sold the car. Aren't they liable for it then? Im expecting some sort of compensation for this actually. The issue is still being discussed with Kia right now.

I was in a dealership last week and they had an optima and it was an SX and the sticker said it had the turbo in it yet on the back of the car there was no "t" and the dealer said they aren't getting the turbo'd optimas yet..so idk what Kia is doing with there stickers but they need to do a better job. I was gunna test drive it but realized it didn't have a turbo :(

Wouldn't they have to swap out a lot of parts in order to add the push button and smart key features?

Does the 2011 part work with the 2010 model?

If you do some patient talking with the dealer and KIA America, you might do pretty well for yourself with this situation.

the thing is kia doesnt know there is a typo until it is reported, we usually dont know there is a typo either until we get a stack of new updated window stickers that needs to get put on the vehicles that are still on the lot. as far as getting the parts that are stated im not sure on that because since it is a typo the part did not come with the car there for it was not added to the price. now if you were charged for that option and it wasnt on the car then thats a different story.

I believe push button only available on Automatics with either the Luxery Package (Canada) or Technology Package (USA).
