Just recently purchased a car :D Honestly I've never bought anything this big in my whole life so this is a really new thing for me. I got the 2012 Kia Picanto, which is the new model with the styling made by that guy from Audi who Kia hired recently.
That said, I'm just posting this to help out anyone on the internet who bought a 2012 Kia Picanto in the Philippines.
If you're looking for where the VALET / PROGRAMMABLE SWITCH / BUTTON is on the new 2012 Kia Picanto, it's a black button that's directly behind the lever that opens the hood. The people at Kia couldn't tell me where it is...so I had to look all over the dashboard for it.
It's a very useful button, in case of emergencies related to your car alarm, or if you need to configure it.
That's all for today :D
