Hello everyone!

I am in the market for a new car, in the next 4-8 months and am seriously considering the Black Niro! I went and test drove it yesterday and really enjoyed it

I do light driving most of the time.. about 20 min or so back and forth to work 5 days a week, and errands on days off. Every few weeks I make a longer drive to see the parents. I think this car would work well for me~

Hi Keri,
Welcome. I'm kinda in the same position as you .... but I think I might be in the market within a month.
My commute is almost the same as yours, as well as a 'once in while' longer trip. I think the Niro could be the answer.
Unfortunately there are none available in my area to test drive so I have to wait until late April to actually see one at the dealers.

I hope you get to test drive one soon basicbill. Where are you located in the US? The only concern I have is some people say stay away from Kia's, and the few threads I saw on the battery drainage. I would hope I would drive it enough for there to be no battery issues. Currently I have a Scion XD.. and I'm not seeing many cars out there that are bigger than a sedan, and smaller than a SUV that I like. Toyota is releasing a new car soon called the CHR but I think its going to be the same size as my current car, and would like something a bit bigger.

Hey Keri,
I'm actually in Canada .... western part.... BC.
I presently drive a Hyundai Tucson so I think the Niro will be right in that same size range.
I also read all the battery draining problem threads but it doesn't seem to be affecting every car; and they seem to have zeroed in on the cause. So, if it should be a problem on mine (if I buy one) I'll be able to direct the service tech to what we have learned.

I get my black Niro today, I hope you decide to make the change too!

Kia and Hyundai have come a long way from the 90's both car companies reputation still linger today, but Kia and Hyundai make incredible vehicles today and it's hard to beat their warranties and price, it's also the first year of the vehicle so there might be some hiccups here and there but I'm sure you'll be taken care of, at least I feel that way with my dealership
