A few things since buying a EX NIRO on Feb 11, 2017 - maybe help someone with an idea or question :-) -------

Contacted KIA Customer Service (very good discussion) and found the battery charging to normal of 50% is the way it is designed (ranges from 40% to 70% +/- a little).

Had one fill up (9.11 gallon for 51.48MPG). About ready for another fill up (say 100 miles from now -- now being around 920 miles). Computer shows 53.X MPG AVE.

Had Passenger and driver door windows tinted ($75 plus tax) on Monday Mar 6 at Sevierville, TN. Guy does good work (has done 4 vehicles and a house window for me since 1997).

Bought a Spare Tire Kit for $199 from KIA OEM Superstore (price included shipping). Good speedy delivery.

Installed a cargo compartmentalized net I had from the previous car, Rogue. Net bought at Target in 2010, just keeps stuff from sliding around, would not offer a lot of resistance for heavy items. Take hooks loose at top and lay flat if you need to lay a big package on top of it.

Put about 50 songs on a USB stick after I found out how to make files from CDs using windows 10
