Hi. My name is Chris...er, I mean Kingtermite.

I did the research on new cars...was looking at full EVs but a little wary of most because of the limited range. I discovered PHEV is the perfect compromise and after narrowing it down to a few to check out further, I ended up deciding on the Kia Niro PHEV.

So, I got my Kia Niro EX Premium on Monday (day before yesterday). Found this forum when googling a few questions.... so here I am! >:)

Welcome, KingTermite. I've had mine two weeks and really enjoying it. Most of our driving is short around town trips with the occasional long trip so the PHEV seems to be a really good solution. Two problems: 1. my uneducated dealer was certain I could get a tow hitch for a bike rack - not true, 2. I'm having difficulties with the charging stopping without warning. Threads on this forum suggest it may be a problem with the connector lock. It's back to the dealer tomorrow.

Hmmm....Both of those are unfortunate. I was hoping to put a hitch on for my bike rack too. I still have my old Toyota Highlander where it usually gets used now, but was hoping I could use it on here. :(

Sorry about the charging problem. I haven't had the 240v outlet installed yet, so I'm still using the level 1 charger, but I haven't had any issues with it.
