Is KIA monitoring these vehicles?

The other day I was driving across the city and my 2018 Niro HEV turned over the 30,000 km mark.

Doors locked, everything off but battery absolutely flat. the first time I put it on a trickle charger and took my wife's car. the second time I had a booster pack and it was quickly resolved. If there's a known issue I wo...
