Steering Wheel Tilting
With Kia’s Sportage Steering Wheel tilting feature, you can consider steering wheel adjustment before starting the vehicle. You can also adjust the steering wheel, giving you more room for your legs. This ensures entering and exiting the car is more comfortable.
Remember you need to position the steering wheel in a way that allows you to drive with comfort but enable you to view the instrument gauges and warning lights. Note it’s not recommended to position the steering wheel’s height and angle when driving because you could likely lose control.
Fold the Mirrors While in the Car
Before you can start driving, ensure you position your vehicle’s mirror angles. These include right-hand and left-hand rear mirrors. You can set the mirrors either using a remote switch or control levers. This depends on the mirror control you use for your vehicle. When you think the mirrors are likely to get damaged, you can fold them back.
Mirrors are essential for your safety when driving, and you need to care for them. For example, if ice accumulates on the mirror's face, avoid scraping because this may cause damage to the glass surface. Also, if you notice the mirror movement is becoming difficult, do not use force because this can cause more damage.
