Windshield Washer issue

We got our blue Niro back form the dealer on Tuesday (the one that broke down within 24hrs). Everything is going great, but now I found another, albeit slightly amusing, problem that needs fixing. The windhield washers are mixed up. When I select the front windshield washer, the front wipers start and the washing fluid comes down the back window. Reversed when I select the back windshield washers.

OMG! Your car seems cursed. Seems like the hoses got switched.

Hopefully the fix is something physical rather than electrical. Seems like your Niro has little to no interest in co operating with you lol.

Maybe just maybe this is a sign that a Niro is not meant for you.

It was a simple fix - just switch the hoses around.

A clear indication that Kias are not completely assembled by robots. Good old human error.
