Customer Question

Good afternoon
I have a Kia RIO 1.1 eco dynamics, AV61 XYS, my third RIO. The stop-start will work most times for a period and, at other times, fails to work at all, perhaps for a day or two. A KIA agency told me that this was normal as the system was affected by battery voltage. I find this difficult to believe as there is no pattern to the problem. My son has a Vauxhall on which the system never fails to operate as designed. Can you advise? I live about 90 miles from the nearest dealer but have had my RIOs regularly serviced with KIA parts by a local garage. I have owned the car for four months and, like the others, find it otherwise excellent. Both my previous models were 1.5 CRDIs.
Thank you,
J P Maclean
