Re: Service cost

Key wording is "of equivalent quality." For a service, without repairing any faults, using Castrol/Shell oil/brake fluid and Bosch oil/air filters should be fine.

Re: Service cost

NiroMax thanks. I've decided to use a local owner managed independent garage to do my 4th service for £180. It's a garage I use for my wife's car and I'm happy with their service and the owner said that they would meet the spec. of Kia liquids etc. to maintain the warranty.

Re: windscreen wipers replacement

Hi. I have a 2017 Niro 3. I couldn't find a rear blade online and just bought one from the dealer.

I think it was £16. It's all one unit and is very easy to replace. Lift it slightly away from the window and just pull gently towards you.

For extra confidence, Google videos on YouTube.

Service cost

Hi. I have a 2017 model 3 and need to get a 40,000 mile, 4th year service done. My local Kia dealer has quoted £346 for the service. That's a lot of money, but is that a typical price for the 4th service?

Re: Niro Audio

Looks like it's a "6-speaker System", whatever that means, in your Niro 3. The 2020 Niro 4 has the JBL audio. I have a 2017 Niro 3 and it has a JBL system, which is excellent. Seems like they've downgraded the audio in the new 3.

Re: Stop prompt for handsfree and auto connect?

I meant to say that those settings are in the iPhone.

Hi, has your friend enabled CarPlay in Settings -> General-> CarPlay?
