windscreen wipers replacement

We have '17 Niro 2. Have just noticed the rubber on the rear windscreen wiper blade is splitting (about 5cm). How easy is it to buy replacement wiper blades? Is it just the 'rubber' bit I have to buy, or is it better to buy the blade with the rubber already attached (but not the whole arm...). How e...

Re: Strap on Bike Rack

Good post and reply. I have a Halfords bike rack which fitted our old car no problem as there was a square bumper jutting out under the tailgate.

Opening boot

Tks

Satnav manual - soft copy attached (I hope)

Kia have forwarded to me a soft copy of the Niro sat nav manual, which I will attempt to attach to this post. They have stated 'We’d be happy for you to upload it and share with Niro owners. I’d recommend noting that it applies to model years ’17-’19 because the recently arrived ’20 model features t...

Re: steering wheel controls

Just checked the dimmer controls. They seemed to be a bit low, so moved them up to '10'. Will see how that goes. Tks all for your help

steering wheel controls

Hi All, Have only had my '17 Niro 2 for about 2 months now and recently drove down unlit roads in the dark for the first time. oooooooH However, I noticed that none of the controls on the steering wheel seem to backlit, is that correct? I am not likely to use cruise control on unlit roads, but adjus...

Hello all!

We are now the proud owners of a (used) 2017 Niro 2. Coming from a Ford Fusion there are a lot of extra knobs and switches! :) We did not receive a Sat Nav user manual from the Kia dealer. Is there one available? (We did get the inch thick user manual though). I'd like to get traffic warnings (tried...
