Re: New Member

Welcome to the forum.
Enjoy your new Kia.
I have owned 79 cars and I can honestly say that my 71 reg eNiro 4+ is the best and most fun car I have ever owned.
Faultless apart from one rear window winder motor replaced swiftly under warranty.

Re: Kia e-Niro a target for thieves?

My Farady pouch (bought on EBAy about 6 years ago) was tested yesterday and works fine. I tried with my spare key which lives in the pouch and left my (used) key upstairs where I leave it every night. Standing next to the car with the faraday pouch, the car would not even open the door mirrors and w...

Re: Kia e-Niro a target for thieves?

Re: Kia e-Niro a target for thieves?

No I'm afraid it doesn't. I tried the superlocking on my 71 reg eNiro. Nothing.
As I said, I am not that worried, car theft in my area is very low and I have a Faraday pouch in which my spare key lives.
Thanks for the though though.

Re: Kia e-Niro a target for thieves?

Many thanks Waspman. Most useful info. I did ask the dealer (Hendy) when I bought the (71 reg 4+ eNiro) if the key would 'sleep' and he said no!
So the superlock tip is most useful. :D

Re: Kia e-Niro a target for thieves?

Hello Richard, Thanks for the link. I read the whole article and the one below "Gone in 20 seconds" and neither mentioned any Kia, that I could see. The nearest they got was Hyundai and in the Gone in 20 seconds article it showed a picture of an Ioniq5 which is a more expensive and later m...

Re: Kia e-Niro a target for thieves?

I have just re-insured my 71 reg eNiro 4+ for £385* So, no my insurance cost is manageable. HOWEVER! Aviva bumped it up fro £328 the previous year to £550 this year. After a hunt o confused .com I obtained insurance from TESCO at the above price*. I cannot see why anyone would want ot steal an out o...
