The on road cost nudging $70K (for a small suv) for the ev version shows the take up of ev's will be slow in Australia for many years. Batteries prices, put forward as the major reason seem to be stubbornly high.

My Kona has a door locking issue. Sometimes it won’t lock at all with the remote. Sometimes it will lock but mirrors won’t close in. Been back to dealer several times and of course it works ok there . Is only 11 months old. Can you offer an answer

It couldbe the door remote control-easiest to justchange the battery. If that doesn’t work it still could be the remote or the receiver in the car. But you’d need a professional tocheck it out

I have a problem filling my Kona with fuel. The bowser piece won't fit completely into my tank and when it reaches full fuel spurts out everywhere. Why won't it go completely into my fuel tank? Anyone else having this problem

Joanna when inserting pump, push on a slight down angle for the first half and then lift up higher to push right in.

My new Hyundai Kona is missing one of the two standard reversing light. The dealer told me this was standard as they did not have to fit two reversing lights in Australia. This is a safety issue. If I am reversing, I can only be seen from one side. Can I have a second reversing light retrofitted?.

Dave

That is correct.Its not a fault.Talk to your auto electrician but don’t think you can unless all the wiring is there,just get them to have a look for you.

As Dave says, it is standard to have only one reversing light on this model

Wow I've never had that. I suggest you take it back to the dealer and ask. Or find a 13yo teenager, they know everything about technology.. Good luck.

I'm having the same problem. My car has gone back 5 times but they cant fix it. Has yours been fixed?

Andrew

I'm having this issue as well. The screen will show that you're still listening to the same station but the station has actually changed randomly. Very frustrating.
