Appreciation for our Niro
Today I had to work on our other vehicle and it gave me a new appreciation for our 2019 PHEV Niro.
I replaced the back 3 coil packs and spark plugs on Our Sienna van today. The vehicle was giving a code P0300 which is cylinder 1 misfire. On a V6 it requires about a 2 hour disassembly of the intake manifold etc to access these parts. After replacing the parts I ran the vehicle to test it. These engines like most gets over 200 degrees under the hood and are noisy- not fun on a 100 degree day in high humidity in the garage
The wife and kids came home from the movies in our new Niro and pulled into the garage. It was running on all electric and was extremely quiet. The engine hood was cool to the touch. What a great car and pleasant change from the non-hybrid Sienna. It made me appreciate the Plug in Niro even more for its versatility and difference from a traditional vehicle.
