Annual Service, 4 recall actions

Post by Greenman » Thu Aug 30, 2018 3:37 pm

My Niro 2 purchased 1 Sept 2016 has just been for its annual service. Additionally 4 recall actions have been done:

- ECM upgrade HCULDC ACC Improvement.
- DE PCB Block Replacement
- ECM Upgrade: BMS Logic Improvement
- Hydraulic Clutch Actuator Inspection: Repair or Replacement.

On the drive home the gear change felt smoother and there were no lags.

Only worry was after 5 miles the mpg figure was 29.5, but this is probably due to running whilst being serviced.

Allow 5 hours for these tasks.

Very interesting. Does anyone have similar info for any Niro PHEV recall items? My first service is booked in two weeks and the dealer did not indicate any updates/recalls when I asked.
Thanks, Andy.

Hi AndyD.
My experience is that until they plug your car in at the service centre they claim not to know what might be needed!. So much for VIN data info, perhaps it's not linked to recalls!

Well, car had first service today (ca. 6000 miles) and was also checked for two bulletin items: hydraulic clutch (no issue found) and rear suspension lower arms (replaced - though I suspect this was just bushes). The garage also arranged for wheel alignment check after the suspension work to avoid potential abnormal tyre wear. Slightly longer than normal, but good service at Kia Weston-S-M.
