Kia Forte 2019-2021 (BD) Owners Manual / Features of your vehicle / Steering wheel / Tilt and telescopic steering

Tilt steering allows you to adjust the steering wheel before you drive. You can also raise it to give your legs more room when you exit and enter the vehicle.

The steering wheel should be positioned so that it is comfortable for you to drive, while permitting you to see the instrument panel warning lights and gauges.

WARNING - Steering wheel adjustment

Never adjust the angle and height of the steering wheel while driving. You may lose steering control

To change the steering wheel angle, pull down the lock release lever (1), adjust the steering wheel to the desired angle (2) and height (3), then pull up the lock-release lever to lock the steering wheel in place. Be sure to adjust the steering wheel to the desired position before driving.

✽ NOTICE

After adjustment, sometimes the lock release lever may not lock the steering wheel. It is not a malfunction.

This occurs when two gears are not engaged correctly. In this case, adjust the steering wheel again and then lock the steering wheel.
