Seen Niros on the Road?

I FINALLY saw another Niro on the road last week! I pulled up right next to him at the stop light and sat there, waving furiously to my "Niro owner in arms"....but I couldn't get his attention. That's the first other Niro I've seen in the Atlanta area since I bought mine 7 mo. ago.

I have only seen one in the Phoenix area. That is what prompted me to check it out online.

I've only seen two Niro's other than mine here in the DC/Maryland/Northern Virginia area and this is Prius country! I think the only place where there are more Prius'es(?) is California! I'm sure low gas prices have caused a slump in hybrid sales and I think Kia doesn't have the reliability track record of Toyota even though Kia has been #1 in initial quality for the last 2 years. I'm hoping the Niro will add to that statistic. No doubt Toyota has proven itself in terms of reliability. My wife has had a Corolla since 2009 with zero issues. On the other hand, my Prius left me stranded last fall when one of the hybrid components failed. Fortunately, it was covered under the warranty and I never had any other problems with it. Let's hope the Niro will do even better!

I have been driving Toyotas and Hondas for the past 2 decades. Niro is so much cuter than Prius though...ha ha. I was in Japan this summer and mentioned to my host family that I had a new car in the US...a Kia. They had never even heard of KIA, let alone a Niro!

I've only seen 2 other Niro's on the road. One is the one my father bought a month after I got mine and I saw the other parked on a street near my home.

I hadn't seen a Niro for months since the car launched in the US. The week after I purchased, I spotted an Espresso Touring model pass me in the fast lane. They looked as though they've spotted their first other Niro on the road. After that I've spotted a silver EX or LX at Costco. The driver looked surprised to see another Niro. The last was a black pearl Touring model headed in the opposite direction. I havenít seen any since. I'm in Sacramento.
