It is a 2010 model year. Sorry about that omission in my opening post. I looked up the specs for the base trim level and it does come with key less remote entry as standard.
I appreciate the instructions posted to program the FOB. I hope it works for the 2010. It is not clear what model years it works for. If anyone knows for sure please weigh in.
I would think they should at least have the key cylinder on the rear hatch. I have had other cars with keyless remotes and no key cylinder on the passenger door but yes on the trunk. If the solenoid mechanism goes bad you can’t open it with out crawling through the car. With remote entry the solenoid actuators get used many many times more and they wear out faster. At least the KIA does not have convenience locks. Cars with that feature wear out the solenoids actuators the fastest.
To SGTRock21 and others with interest. I did not want to get in to to much personal stuff but I have a handicap member in my family. When I take them out I have to get them in the car first. It makes it awkward to leave them alone in a wheel chair on the passenger side and then walk around to the driver side to open the doors and then walk back around to put them in the car. Especially in the rain or cold weather. I then have to get the wheel chair into the trunk. The other day the lock mechanism was sticking for some reason and I had to play with the drivers side door unlock button to get the hatch lock to open. It took about a minute. If it had a key cylinder on the hatch it would not have been an issue to me.
