  1. Check Engine Light

    Kia Niro
    Well the dealer said that the code was actually an old code that came back. They called it a "history code". Although to my knowledge this is the first time this code has ever shown up. Anyway they switched the #4 coil with the #3 and cleared the code so if the code comes up again and shows #3...
  2. Check Engine Light

    Kia Niro
    Light is on after re-start, and nothing is flashing. Taking it to the dealer is not a big deal to me since it is under warranty if it is something major at least they will have to deal with it. Since the message said to make an appointment soon, I don't think that waiting a week is a big deal...

    CEL came on while driving down the interstate in snow storm. The nav screen shows a message and a voice exclaims that there is a potential problem with the Engine Control System and to make an appointment with your Kia dealer soon.

  7. Missfire codes

    Kia Niro
    What exactly is the car doing that makes you, or Kia, call it a miss fire? I would think that a true miss fire would throw all kinds of codes as well as a cel. I do notice a hesitation in gas mode at different speeds. Almost like it wants to shift into ev or another gear, but I haven't noticed...
  8. Blend or straight synthetic oil?

    Kia Niro
    Just got my first oil change at the dealer and they told me that they use a blend.
  9. Front backup beeper?

    Kia Niro
    Not a fan of the noise maker, it sounds fake.....and it seems to come on whenever it wants to...
  10. Charging

    Kia Niro
    I noticed that the charge indicator is never showing "full" Is this normal? It never seems to get past that 3/4 mark.

    Well I've had my Niro exactly one week today and I already have a screw in my tire and of course its somewhat on the sidewall. Kia dealer did plug it, but warns that it may not hold :mad:

    Hello everyone, I'm known as orngandblack, a name i took on in the good old days of the internet. I was on Prodigy and could only use 12 characters for a user name so I had to improvise the orangeandblack spelling. I am a big Philadelphia Flyers fan and so explains my user name. Just bought a...
