let the ricing begin!

I found Kia Tech Info – the complete service and shop manuals for my 2001 Kia Sportage (and other models) available online, direct from Kia, for free.

Went to O’Reilly Auto Parts and got a generic “leather covered” shifter knob; I’ll put it on in the next couple of days to replace the factory-stock plastic one that’s missing its top label.
