At first I would try and grab the seatbelt over my shoulder and it was really annoying trying to reach that far back. Instead now I reach it down low towards my hip and it's really not a problem anymore.

except the marking up the plastic door molding when you take off the seatbelt issue. They need cloth door moldings or a retainer on the seat.

May have to look into the belt holders. I've taken to reaching with my right arm, just a quick twist of the waist and it's a natural movement after a while.

yea, but the problem is the metal clasp hitting the window or door trim and putting nicks in the plastic or window tint film........ looks like crap after awhile.

The seat belt holders solve all that.:D

The belt holder fits well on our head rests, but the plastic hook that secures the belt is a poor fit for our cars. It is too short and angled wrong. Mine is constantly "breaking" away. The belt bunches up and gets twisted. Kia needs to address this problem.

Lucky me, I'm most comfortable with my seat as far back from the steering wheel as it can go so I've never had a problem reaching back for the seatbelt.
