Re: Hi

The only advice I can give is for you to try and arrange a long and varied test drive of a Niro to see whether it would suit your lifestyle. I have migrated from a series of Audis, then Hyundais and now to KIA. For me - the Niro is the best car I have ever owned in terms of suiting our lifestyle. We...

Re: Mobile phones & Smartphones

I have a mifi dongle loaded with a 12 GB 12 month Three mobile SIM which cost about £30. I formerly used my Samsung A3 phone as a hot spot - but kept forgetting to take it with me when I parked the car. The dongle stays in the car and is plugged into the USB socket in the storage cubby under the arm...

I can see no corrosion type marks like those on your's - just a few tiny grit impact marks. https://i.img...

Re: Kia Niro - UK Pictures

Here is my Niro 2 + ADAP in the flat white. I love the car but I didn’t like the design of the wheels with plastic covers. I damaged one of the wheel cover trims on a high kerb and was quoted £75 for a replacement which was the trigger for me to replace the wheels with some conventional alloys. I ma...

Re: Adaptive cruise control

Sudden braking can also be caused by the AEB system - this would apply the brakes if an obstacle suddenly appeared in front of the car with and without cruise being active.

Re: Map updates 2018

I took delivery of my Niro 2 on March 9th 2017 and had the head Unit and maps updated on May 2nd 2017.

I suggest you get the dealer to sort it. The KIA traffic warnings are excellent and should be displayed on the map if you have set a destination that involves traffic on the way there.

Re: Tom Tom traffic updates

If you have set a route on which there are no traffic problems - then no traffic will show and it will look like it isn't working. You need to keep the phone tethered and connected all the time in order to receive the latest traffic and camera updates as you drive along. Normally - when you fist sta...
