I wish I could buy this, it's a really great deal!


I used to have a WRX too, fun cars :) I got my Niro under similar circumstances, my long commutes were costing me a fortune in my Audi. Needed...

Mine definitely seems to communicate via long-interval polling, like you're saying. I can have it update on-demand from the app, but otherwise it seems to only self-update itself once every few...

Can verify that it won't let you overcharge it. In the rare (or not rare, in the case of the plug-in models) event that the battery actually reaches full charge, regen braking gets replaced with...

Could be the window I suppose, but my Niro's alarm used to go off almost daily for no reason. At work, in parking lots, in my garage, everywhere. I really thought for the longest time that the...

Maybe it's just me, but my Niro is by FAR the quietest car I've ever had. Cabin noise is pretty low on my list of complaints. I couldn't imagine being bothered by it so much that it justifies a new...

The only sediment that is in your tank is either: 1) Too large to fit into fuel intake, or 2) will be sucked up during the very next tank gas, no matter what you try to do to prevent it. Point...

Not sure why this urban legend has persisted for so many generations. Your fuel gets pumped from the very bottom of the tank regardless of what the fuel level is. If there's sediment in there, it's...

And roadside assistance :D

^ Great post. Indeed, everyone should know where and when to take their car for service, and also know that it's not always the same place every time.

FWIW, I drive the same route every morning, and every morning my car switches from EV to HEV mode at almost exactly the same place. And that place is almost exactly 26 miles from my house.

I think I remember reading in the manual (or elsewhere) that the Niro is electronically limited to 105mph. So people on the Autobahn will be disappointed :D but it's fine for North America where we...

I have the PHEV, and love it, but keep in mind that the $4k price differential (after the rebate brings it down from a $6k differential) is going to take a LONG time to break even on. By my rough...
