Re: Space saver spare wheel

A full size spare wheel and tyre fits under the boot floor too. I had one for my Niro first edition. I bought the wheel on ebay and had the tyre from blackcircles.co.uk

Re: DAB Radio dropping in & Out

I found the DAB radio would drop out whenever there was a double decker bus or a heavy goods vehicle near mine

Re: Fuel Economy in cold weather

A bit late to the conversation but the main reason the fuel economy is much worse in winter is down to the heating system. Turn it off and use the heated seats and steering wheel and you'll see your MPG go back up again.

Re: New here, so Hi all

I also got my map update for free as it was done at the same time as a service. This was at GWR Kia in Brentford. However, I recommend skipping the built-in maps if you can and use the Waze app for Android or iOS using the built-in Android Auto or Apple CarPlay feature. Much more up to date maps, be...

Re: Radio glitching

I find mine does that whenever there's a double decker bus or a HGV near me.

I'm tempted by the Kia Stinger

Warning - random ramble ahead :lol: I've had my Niro now for 18 months, and I love it. It's a First Edition spec, with all the bells and whistles - and that has a lot to do with the satisfaction I feel for it. But recently I've been looking at more and more videos of the Kia Stinger GTS on YouTube a...

Re: Lead time/waiting time

You need to first connect the car to a WiFi hotspot - I recommend sharing the Internet connection from a smartphone. Once this is connected, a speed camera option will appear in settings.

Re: Kia e-Niro

I had my update done during servicing and wasn't charged the £25 fee. It might be worth waiting for the service and having it done then.
