Re: Do the driver and passenger seats soften ul in Kia Niro?

I guess it could depend on the level of the Niro. I have a Niro 4 with the leather seats and have found no issues with them being hard. Can't spea for the cloth covered seats but i would have thought the generic seat design is the same in whatever model you buy, just the seat trim being different.

Re: Niro in winter conditions - advice please

Hi Kat I have a Niro 4 self charging model like you are looking at and have had no issues what so ever driving in winter through, snow, ice and rain. Like any car you have to take into account the road conditions at the time. The Niro is a lovely car to drive with the fuel economy to go with it. The...

Re: Two faults - juddering & petrol cap

No issues to date with my 18 month old Niro4 with 16000 miles on the clock. It has been a dream to drive since the day I took delivery of it new.

Re: Radio glitching

Had the same issue with my Niro, wouldn't pick up any DAB stations one day and then was fine the next. Fortunately the day I took it to the dealer no DAB stations. Problem identified as a faulty shark fin aerial and replaced under KIA warrenty. Has been good ever since with no reception issues.

Re: SatNav display

You can leave it auto mode and it will scale the maps to give what the system thinks is the best view. If you want you can overide this by tapping the auto key on the sat nav and then set the scale at whatever distance you wish. The system will use this distance setting for all mapping until you tap...

Re: Minor irritation with Niro

Digital speedo in the middle of the instrument cluster can't change it from mph to kph as in most other Kia models. Useful when motoring abroad.

Re: New Kia Niro owner

Hi Alan Many thanks for the links, think i will go down the self installation route providing the fuse fits. The tutoral is informative and should help make installation easier. Would appreciate if you could let me know, and for other Niro owners thinking of self installation, if the fuse works. Tha...

Re: New Kia Niro owner

Hi Alan Just bought a Nextbase dashcam myself for my Niro 4 and was thinking of doing the installation myself, though Nextbase tell me they have an arrangement with Halfords who will fit the dashcam for £30 which includes the fitting kit. From your experience I'm not sure now whether Halfords will b...

Re: Best and Worst Thing About Your Niro

Not being able to change the digital speed indicator from MPH to Kms. This can be done on other Kia models but not on the Niro for some reason. As I take my Niro abroad have this option would be useful rather than trying to work out the speed on the analogue circular speedo. A simple software upgade...

Re: Speed camera alerts

Connect by turning on mobile hotspot/tethering on your mobile and this should then give you the speed camera alerts. Check you sat nav by going into settings, navigation, and you should see speed alerts active.
