Re: Hydraulic knocking from engine bay

Hi Rob Young. Sorry to hear of your woe. Presumably when your in electric mode noise stops? Does the noise change as engine warms up or alter at all or sound different if you increase revs in Park mode when stationery.

Re: Unable to charge and Check Hybrid System warning

Hi all I take on your views however, I cannot accept that competent drivers cannot reverse in a space, partly because it is better to drive out forwards than reverse out into potential dangers with restricted views. For me side or side rear charging port is better since it is less likely to be damag...

Re: Trip History

Hi jerrytaff . Can only speak about hybrid Niro. On these cars any journey taken about 3 to 4hours later than the previous one will always be counted as a separate journey.

Re: New to Kia

Re: Any Annoying Beeps etc

Hi Bill-I-am.
Yes it sounds like all the cars are set up this way , hard luck!

Re: A/C COMPRESSOR Fault

Hi gogo85m. Yes that seems premature failure and a long wait for repair ( part availability?)
Not sure it makes much difference but did you leave Aircon on all the time or switch it on when needed to maximise

Re: All about Connected Services - check these links.

Hi all. AA or the phone connection has occasionally been lost or on one occasion just froze. Both required the phone to be disconnected and reconnected which then resumed its destination etc.! I am unable to understand why or what causes this to happen unless a strong interfering signal occurs. Is t...
