Re: new niro owner

The ocean blue colour is very aptly named - just like the sea it reflects a wide range of blues depending on the light and sky colour. Like most, though, it's at its best in bright sunlight.

Re: High beam assist

It probably won't make you feel any better, but I can't get mph on mine! At least most UK-sold cars have a nod to kph around the inside of the speedometer, the reverse is missing on cars sold on "the continent".

Re: Wing Mirrors

It only does that if the mirror selector switch is right or left, in the middle the mirrors do not dip.

Whilst I occasionally would need this useful feature, I find it so annoying in normal use that I always have it switched off, and then forget about it when I do need it!

Re: EV mileage and noise

After messing around with the whizzy graphics on the central display for a while, I now drive with the live fuel consumption display up behind the steering wheel and use that as a reference to whether the petrol engine is active, given it can be surprisingly quiet.

Re: Considering buying HEV version of Niro

Where are you based that you have 8" of snow? 1. See my comments on snow here . Main issue is traction at the front in corners, rather than beating through snow. 3. No, the foot operated emergency brake is well to the side, up above where your foot would normally be. But I have a LHD, not sure about...

Re: New to Kia

I've been wondering what shape of housing it would take to deflect enough airflow to stop or reduce the buildup of dirt and yet not obstruct the camera view. Of course, it may be impossible and a user-made solution would be difficult anyway.

Re: TPMS valves

With different wheels for summer and winter, I'm still some way off replacement tyres, however just to give you an idea of the valves - made by VDO (Siemens), they cost me around €45 each.

I also found some interesting reading here:
