Re: Niro 4 reversing camera

I wonder why the image is worse,surely Kia use the same unit for all their vehicles with rear cameras? Could it be the difference in camera angle at the rear of the car? I had my rear camera replaced under warranty (niro hybrid 2017) due water ingress and the image quality was the same as before. At...

Just when the covid restrictions were being eased I did a few shortish journeys ( longest 50 miles), without any problems. 2 days later wanted to move the car out of garage and it refused to 'start' in EV or engine mode.

Re: New Member

Welcome. Yes i have seen your channel on tube and its quite good. These days there is quite a lot of competition for car channels. Interestingly, you might be the first driving school to offer electric car instruction which is a step forward. The only criticism I have is that these drivers will have...
