The Leafs gotta go, I'm picking up an EX this weekend!
Hello all, Just registered, picking up my Niro this weekend, an EX with Advanced pkg! Not sure if 17 or 18, almost same car, we will see this weekend! Back in 2008, the price of a loaded Prius was cheaper than filling my 4Runner with gas each month! So I bought one, and that started a really nice run on Priuschat.com. Loved the Prius, but after 9 years my mind started to wander, and I bought a 2014 Nissan Leaf. Love the car, I just don't want to spend 1/2 of my remaining life on this planet recharging a battery!
So into my life pops a Niro. I loved my 4Runner, still have it, a "crossover", I really hate that term, mini SUV was what I wanted, and with 46/50, I'm all in!! With my Hypermiling skill, Avg 46.6 in the Prius, I am looking forward to 550 mile range, ah freedom, how we miss it when we don't have it! I am trading in the Leaf, hopefully they will give me a good price, it was a fun car, and is in terrific condition!
I love to mod, am a TV Engineer by trade, Amateur Radio, Wood/Metal working, Making, are all fun things I do!!
I will start a Log Book on the car, post the good and bad, whatever, my mods, fixes, thoughts, mpg, fun times!
Looking forward to learning a new transport system, I have the experience, bring on the ride!!
