Just brought home my new Niro EX yesterday! (with the tech package, if it matters)

I noticed behind the rear view mirror there?s a good sized black plastic assembly. What is that? Does it serve any function or non-asthetic purpose?

And where the heck should I put my EZPass transponder? Can I attach it to that??

That black thing is...ahem, your tech package. Part of it anyway.

It has cameras that are part of the lane departure warning system.

Aaah, ok. I would have imagined those being in the bumper or something but that makes sense.

I did discover that there?s just enough space to the right of it to put the EZPass transponder and still be out of my view behind the rear view mirror.

The way I seen these designed is that car makers have a few options to position them, so odds are if you were to look at another car with similar tech it won't be the same. Just had to point that out.
