Hello, just took delivery of our new Neptune blue Seltos SX a couple days ago. It is my first new vehicle purchase, and I'm 60 +.This is replacing our 2011 Ford Edge that we had no complaints about. It has been an interesting learning curve with all the bells & whistles lol .So far we think we have made a good decision.

Hello every one! I am new to the group, and saw the Southern Ont thread and thought this would be a great place to start. I am very new to these types of groups, so bare with me!! I work at a Kia dealership, and just recently purchased a 21 Seltos LX (with out AWD). I have been very intrigued since they first announced it, and finally made my purchase! I l absolutely love it so far, and can't wait to follow along here for others thoughts and opinions.

With you being in Canada and working at a dealership (and maybe even in the parts area?), I'm curious your thoughts on this:

Ventilated seats weren't an option in the US. The faux-leather seat fabric on the SX trim looks identical though for the Canada market where ventilated seats are an option. Is the ventilation components anything you feel would ever be available as an aftermarket product that could be purchased and installed?

I already have an SX and damn do I wish it had ventilated seats.

That's interesting that it is different in the USA. I honestly had no idea, but you would think it would be popular in places like Texas, California, Florida etc, where the temperatures get so hot.

I can't imagine Kia Canada would release something aftermarket like that. Here, aftermarket stuff Kia will endorse is limited. Aside from Thule, WeatherTech and Automobility (electronics company for remote starts and dvd systems) Kia tends to stay away in my experience. I would imagine the module is slightly different than how a heated seat pad would work, so i am not sure how much would go into making it capable to do ventilated seats.

Hi there, I have a question. I am having problems with my Apple Car Play. My phone only works handsfree when my Apple Car Play is NOT plugged in? is this right? If my apple car play is plugged in, I can't use hands free in my 2021 Kia Seltos and it's bugging me why it's not working. I'm sure when I bought my car 4 months ago it work that way? Help!!! I'm in CANADA as well in Toronto. Cheers everyone!!! KiA ON... Michele

Sry can't help with Apple car play, I know my android play works fine when connected to my old Samsung neo 5. I only used it to try if it works when we first picked it up .

Hi Michele, to the best of my understanding, you cannot use your phone in any capacity if it is plugged into apple car play. I have an iphone, and i personally prefer connecting via bluetooth, because i find it does what i want better. I personally don't like apple car play at all, and i have dealt with it on the Kia and Chevrolet. It is a great tool for certain people, but i just dont care to much for its capabilities.
