Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.

I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Dear customer, it is strange that your kia 2019 is asking so often regeneration, normally when a vehicle asks for frequent regeneration is because there is something in the DPF that is obstructing and indicates to the driver to be regenerating, most of the regeneration occurs due to the dirt that occurs in the DPF which must be cleaned by this regeneration.

As I do not consider that your vehicle has accumulated dirt problems because it is so recent, I will recommend you first perform a computerized diagnosis to rule out that it is not simply an error code stored in the problem. This diagnosis if you can carry it out in the KIA for better guarantee issue still, but if for some reason you can not attend the dealership or you want to reduce costs, you can go to any trusted garage that has a diagnostic equipment with KIA software.

Dear Customer, my goal is to give you the best advice I can and I hope that I've helped today.
