    Need help locating cabin exhaust vent

    I want to rig some small fans and a solar panel to keep air moving through my car when it's parked so it doesn't turn into an oven. It seems to me that the best place to do this would be in/at the cabin exhaust vent.

    Anyway, I need a little help from the Kia community: Where is the cabin exhaust vent? I was looking around in the back of my car last night and it wasn't obvious where it was.

    I think it's at the back, but never look for it (could be around the rear wheels), but sometimes you can hear it shortly after shutting a door.

    I use side window visors and windshield cover to help with the heat exhaust when parked when necessary.

    For the G2 (not sure if it will be the same on a G1) the exterior vent is on the rear drivers side directly below the tailight behind the rear bumper cover. On the same side of the interior there is a rectangular vent in the cargo area body panel in the spare tire well (have a peek at yours). Keep in mind, that there may not be a corresponding vent in the body right there though.

    To rapid cool my interior on those hot days... with power windows I just roll down the windows after starting the car, have the ACC on Auto, drive a block to blow out the hotter air quickly , roll up the windows. Works great for me.

    These hang in a slightly cracked window to vent:

    You would need an insulated and air conditioned garage. Boy, would that be nice.

    Great idea, but did you look at the reviews/ratings? Yikes! If a car got those ratings, I know I would not buy one. (Unless it's a Yugo! LOL)

    If it had better ratings, I'd seriously consider one.
