Re: Hybrid battery

Hi all. Never seen charge go above 75 % in general driving or below 25% on hybrid , but have read on other forums that it can go very high towards 99 % on long downhill sections of mountains passes and a hot smel! noticed. This high level surprises me since it would appear that the regeneration brak...

Re: Hello / Bonjour

Well, everything you would check for with any car plus all the additional electric gizmos the hybrid has, problem being how do you check some of these? To be honest it's difficult but I would drive a new demonstrator then drive the secondhand one and compare noise and smoothness. You will have the K...

Re: Starting question

Hi endurance171. Yes, unless it's the plug in version. The hybrid will usually start the engine everyday on first outing. I can on!y think of perhaps 2or 3 occasions when it did not over the last 15 months. A lot depends on your heating and air-conditioning positions of course but after the first st...

Re: Google Maps navigation volume?

Hi Hopp. Have you also tried the radio volume controls, stearing wheel or dash knob, WHILST the navigation or any other car related info is being broadcast. Most of the car announcements can be controlled up or down by this method, but only DURING the actual output. Good luck

Re: Puddle Lights

Does not come with puddle lights but a number of owners have fitted them fairly easily retrospectively. Do a search on niro or Kia blogs.
If dealer not interested I am sure s decent car electric engineer can fit them

Re: Niro CarPlay

Hi bah434x. One other option I forgot to mention. Apparently iPhone bluetooth needs to switch off when being connected to carplay. Software problem may cause it not to switch off hence your problem. Try manually switching off Bluetooth , if it's on normally, then plug in phone with original iPhone c...

Re: Emergency braking feature

Hi aubyerd.
The other option to test surely is to set the maximum distance it responds at, I think there is at least 3?. This will give you the option to brake manualy if no response. The response is also related to speed of travel I think. I am sure the manual gives set up instruction s

Re: Niro CarPlay

Hi bah434x. Sorry to hear of the carplay problems . Most of us have the occasional drop out connection problem but this seems excessive. Suggest you would take car back to dealer and get them to try one of their phones or several to confirm the problem?
