I joined the forum a few weeks ago when I was looking for some information, and I have to say I am loving it! We bought our 2017 Kia Niro about 19 months ago and we just rolled over 62,000 miles. So far, the only issue we've had was a one-time occurrence of a cylinder misfire, which was never resolved. We had just had it in for scheduled maintenance, drove it about 90 miles, parked it overnight and the next morning it was misfiring something bad so we had it towed in for warranty inspection. They ended up having to tow it 60 miles because we aren't near a dealer and they got it there, it fired right up and they couldn't recreate the issue. The code read "possible problem(s) with the engine control system." Hasn't happened again since and that was about 6 months and 30,000 miles ago.
Other than that, we've LOVED our car. The gas mileage is insane! At one point on a road trip through western Nebraska, we went 180 miles with an average of 68mpg. It definitely hates the Minnesota winters though, because at best in cold weather we'll average about 38-40. Anyway, I look forward to becoming an active member of this forum!
