So I have 3 issues with the car currently.

Wireless android auto not working with not just my phone, the wife's phone as well, we both have Samsung Galaxy S10s. Went to the dealership, couldn't connect my phone at all, could connect any other phones that tried. As of right now kia and the dealership isn't doing anything

I live in the north east, cold weather hit and I got a stress fracture across the passengerside, stemming from that pillar in a "Z" shape, I tried to attach a photo but it keeps failing. Dealership did nothing, filed a case through corporate, waiting for dealership to replace...nothing hit the windshield or anything either, I made sure before taking it this far

Steering column rubbing that is driving me INSANE! Sounds like the leather is rubbing with the plastic where the steering wheel meets the column, brought to dealership, they filed a case with corporate, waiting for a response but they said it SHOULD be covered under warranty.

I currently have a white GT-LINE, no sunroof. My girlfriend has a black LXS, has same wireless android issue, but nothing else.

For the phones I googled, and searched, and scoured reddit, NOTHING helps. USB works. Thanks in advance.

A lot of Android phones don't support wireless Android Auto. I have an LG Velvet, and it doesn't support wireless, only USB. When reading about it, I saw something about some Galaxy phones getting support for wireless, but I think you need to be running Android 9.0+ and Android Auto 4.7+. Not sure if there are other requirements. My fiancee has a Galaxy S20 and it supports wireless Android Auto (EX without premium package, 8" screen).

See the galaxy s20 works fine too! I think its just the S10, period. I'm tech savvy and always make sure we have the most recent updated everything. I'm just ready to factory reset and if that dont work throw them in the trash and get the S20 lol im so sick of problems with the car its infuriating. 30k for problems is annoying lol

Haha. Well, that's not a problem with the car, that's an Android software limitation. My LG Velvet is brand spanking new, and I figured it would have wireless Android Auto, but it doesn't. I'm honestly not sure why it isn't commonplace on flagship devices.
