Re: e-Niro due in just over a week!

Are you considering ceramic coating and or wrapping at least the front valances, bonnet, wings and mirrors to ease cleaning and reduce stone damage. Some reviews say certain colours of paint are soft and mark easily like the stupid polished black plastic inside the car areas just where hand bags and...

Re: Kia e-Niro

Hi kia_e-niro_fan. Kia apparently monitor all orders to ensure dealerships do not have false orders for fictiscious customers. Of course they need colours for production schedules.

Re: Kia e-Niro

Hi Colin Lambert.
Hope you enjoy test but make sure you check out my comments about rear seating setup.
Can you Note the tyre make and version as they may be using harder rubber , ie noiser than hybrid Niro tyres.
The first edition seats may be more gripping than some other Niro seats

Re: Kia e-Niro

Hi all. I am very happy with my Niro 2 partly because it is large enough quiet and comfortable enough as well as being reasonably economical. Recently , being at the dealership, I took the opportunity to take a drive in the E Niro. Much has been said about it in the press, mostly good. My expectatio...

Re: Getting my Niro 2 next week - what to look for?

Re: USB

It is difficult to get below 50mpg even in winter (below freezing) unless you do a lot of short journeys, drive very aggressively and have heating on full all the time. Check your set...

Re: Knocking from engine bay

Hi Jeremy, saw your earlier post about this and assumed your first action would be to demonstrate this to dealer. From what you say you were unable to replicate the noise to the technician.

Re: Kia Nav turn directions

Hi MiniEggs. From my experience with hybrid the display Infront of driver only works when using the inbuilt sat nav !
It does not work with android or apple car play.
The direction symbol looks fairly typical to me in your photo.
