Can also be the case with the Phone / App? Just in case it's an Android phone that your father uses, keep in mind that Android can put to "deep sleep" some apps when those are not opened/used for a long time.

Have you checked the app settings and updates?

Dealers usually over inflate the tyres. Please adjust the pressure to 32-36 as per your preference. The higher the pressure, the stiffer the ride but better handling. For softer rides, you can keep it 32-34 range.

Happy with Kia RSA, but would like to drive the car to Kia service center to find out and if required charge the battery.
I understand that smart key has a physical key that can be used to unlock the car if the smart key is unable to because of low or dead battery in smart key fob.

However, will the physical key also work in case the battery of the car itself is dead?

The reason I ask is this is because some cars do use electronics to unlock the door even while using the mechanical key.( Watch the embedded video from 3:00 ) )

Sorry for a late response. Was caught up in a couple of things and missed sharing feedback on Aux lights I recently got installed. I got the chance to drive with these in complete darkness and early morning time on highways and mountain roads in Sakleshpur. TBH these enhance the visibility manifold. I could drive with much more confidence and the low beam throw is great. High beam throw is out of the world and it lights up the entire scenery in front of you. I made sure I used low beam or even switched off Aux lights in Mountain roads if there was oncoming traffic. These would definitely dazzle them and hamper their visibility. Sharing some pictures and videos I took during the drive.

1. OEM Headlights only

2. OEM + Aux Low Beam

3. OEM + Aux High Beam

4. Here is a video which can give you a better sense.

Re: Kia Seltos : Official Review

Those using wired Apple Carplay, does the head unit show the dialed contact list when you press the Call button on the steering wheel? Mine doesn't and hence, my question.

I had been using Android Auto all this time and pressing the call button took me to the call list. Recently moved to Carplay and this doesn't work. I have to click the green call icon on the head unit screen to make the list appear. All other functions work, I make calls without issue and even disconnect using the steering controls. Without being connected to Carplay but just Bluetooth, the call button on steering wheel works fine too.

I just checked this on my Sonet, and it doesn't. Looks like a bug/limitation with Apple CarPlay. I see related posts on the Apple discussions forum.

Check for software update/upgrade of the head unit.
I would just do a hard reset of your Head Unit. And see what this the outcome.

Will share my feedback next week. As the pics show, the lights are fixed on backets in Air Dam. Attaching a picture of my car for your reference. Not very clear but will share better ones next week.
Have a few questions on this :
1) What was the final price for the total setup?
2) Where did you get it done?
3) How do you switch from low beam to high beam?
4) How is the performance now compared to the default/factory settings and would you recommend it?

This comment of yours motivated me to check out the Kia Seltos today. I'm looking for a mid-sized SUV in the Rs 20 lakhs price range. A cracker of a car and far more fun to drive than Elevate, Hyryder & Grand Vitara albeit with a stiff suspension.

While both the ATs are top-class, my pick would be the Diesel AT. I liked its driveability more, no overheating issues with brake-crawling in traffic, the fuel-economy will be higher and of course, the guaranteed reliability of the simpler torque converter gearbox in the long-term. The fact that I don’t have to pay any premium for the diesel engine makes it a no-brainer choice for me. If you were wondering about where the market is, it’s almost a 50:50 between the Seltos petrol & diesel
GTO please could you expand on your comments marked (by me) in bold. Are you saying the diesel automatic is the more reliable transmission to go with? At this point I am okay between choosing petrol or diesel. Thanks for your inputs.

The light setup is very discreet and the output is extraordinarily good

I'm currently in Kerela for a Road Trip. Can't thank my stars enough I got these. They light up the road really well. Tested these in rainy, cloudy weather and wet roads. Have not disappointed me 1 bit.
