Back!! About to roll 27,000 on it.

The trip to the Rockies was just over 2000 miles. Was a good trip with good mpg except on the trip back when I was just wanting to get home doing 75-80. Then I took a big hit, only averaged 34 mpg. In the Rockies I would be in the slow lane as the two squirrels under the hood had a hard time with some of the climbs. Setting the cruise control for descents worked good to control speed and usually kept the car in EV mode.

In HEV mode, on the plug in with an “empty” battery and normal 16” wheels, I’m getting 44 at worst 46 normally 48 if I’m trying. A/C and heater don’t effect HEV mode too much. My true MPG taking into account charging a few times per week, (I don’t have a home garage charger yet) has been between 60 at worst 70 normal and 85 best.

With gas heading toward $3.50 a gallon, 15,000 miles a year I’d save $1,270 per year in gas at “70mpgE” vs a 26mpg average Optima. Taking into effect the tax credits reducing the lease price, seems to be a wise financial choice. Optima was great, and all we really wanted was the hatch back convenience. Could be saving $3800 in gas over this lease.

Pretty sure I have you all beat. I drive for a living and put about 4 to 500 miles A-day on my Niro I now have a 130000 miles on my Niro. I love it. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago just to show you I'm not joking.

Although you guys are all getting better mileage than me. I have the touring edition which automatically gets last gas mileage but with the driving I do at the speeds that I drive and the loads that I'm carrying I average about 38 to 40 miles a gallon

That's not bad mpg everything considered. Given the mileage you drive, you might gain from getting the 16" wheels enough to cover the cost and then some. You can use the other wheels for winter tires if you drive in winter conditions.

Has the car gone through any changes in 130,000 miles? Any loosening of the engine or transmission? Rattles and squeaks? Suspension and handling? Fuel economy the same throughout?
