Re: New to Kia

The ideal answer would be like on the VW Golf where the camera is behind the badge and this flips up when the car goes into reverse returning to the closed position when in forward motion. KIA badge on tailgate ideally located to do the same unless VW have patented the technology.

Re: Steering wheel squeaking when heated

Not noticed it and have used my heated steering wheel quite a bit earlier this year and in the past two weeks in the mornings. Suggest you have the dealer check it out under warrenty.

Re: Best and Worst Thing About Your Niro

Yes the PHEV comes with a tyre repair kit which is fine for a simple puncture. I've not heard of a loan tyre service but there is 12 months RAC cover included with the car. KIA Assist in conjunction with the RAC has the loan tyre option. If the tyre is beyond a tyre repair using the foam kit the RA...

Re: Android Auto and wireless charging

It's the next generation of head units, only a very few currently on the market, which allow Android Auto and Apple Carplay to connect wirelessly. Unfortunately no Kia head unit currently has this facility so you are still stuck with a wired connection if you wish to use Andriod auto irrespective of...

Re: Emergency braking feature

I can confirm that the emergency braking does work as I had an issue with a car pulling out from a side road, the driver obviously not seeing me and the car within a split second applied the brake to avoid what could have been a collision. So from my point highly pleased that the detection system wo...

Re: Niro CarPlay

Had no issues on my 6 month of Niro using Apple Car Play, as soon as my iPhone is plug in via a cable a message displays on the screen 'bluetooth disconnected'. If you are not receiving this message on screen it does sound like something is wrong with the connection. Do you know if you have the late...

As previosly noted these will not polish out and look like they have been caused by ...

Re: Speed warning on sat nav

All that is needed to activate speed camera warnings is to activate Personal Hotspot in the phone settings. Your phone will then connect to the SatNav unit and give your warnings when approaching speed cameras. This will however use data on your phone so unless you have a good monthly data allowance...
