I hope that this is OK, but I was thinking about starting a thread about the adventures of driving a Niro in the Colorado. Colorado can present a number of challenges for a car from the weather and road conditions to what we ask our cars to do out here. My hope is that this will help inform other about this cars abilities.
I will dispense with some of MY particulars and jump right in to today’s challenge …. Damaging Hail.
So, my 3 week old Niro was involved a golf ball size or larger hail event this afternoon. Yep, the weather gods are not happy with me. So, now my Niro is no longer a virgin, let the door dings begin.
All the cars in the area were heavily damaged, including mine. The one plus I can add is that the, rear visor over the back window (not sure what the correct term is) must have acted as a hail shield and protected the back window from being shattered as had happened to a number of cars. I am also glad that I don’t have a sunroof; many were shattered.
Later, I will talk about driving switchback in the mountain. That will be more fun J
I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to show these people a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.
