That seems to be an issue -- I don't know what it is (miss or what), but I feel something sometime (maybe at the same speed range). I have been more or less ignoring it as it is not earth shattering or a nuisance, but something is going on (don't know if it's a miss or what).my story is a lot like yours they had the car I wanted ,drove it liked it a lot ..I would love it if it didn't miss around 30 to 40 mph ..doesnt set off any sensors yet ...going to wait a while before going back to the dealer ...
Thanks PAULRIDES and everyone for the welcome!Welcome to the forums! What are you currently driving right now??
Wow. sounds like you have an up and down car buying experience. Was your previous vehicle falling apart? It doesn't make any sense to trade in something that upside down.Over Memorial Day weekend, I bought a Black Niro FE with 60 miles on it from a Kia dealer here in the LA area. The cash price was $20,745 not including any taxes, titles & fees. (I was told I got a $4,000 discount plus a $500 rebate from Kia which is how they ended up with this price.)
WARNING: Post continues with semi-embarassing details.
I was upside down $7,000 on my previous car loan but needed a Hybrid bad. Basically, I owed about $14,000 on it but the Kelly Blue Book value was only about $7,000 (Don't ask how that happened!)
Because of being upside down on my previous loan and therefore paying way more for the Niro loan than the car is actually worth, I purchased an additional warranty that included GAP insurance. (Not sure if this was necessary but sounded good.) That added $1,695 to the bill.
So, all in all, I paid $31,144.19. 6 year loan, 4.9% APR (not great credit - 645 score.)
Pretty high, I think, but the amount of driving I do and savings in gas will offset that.
Honestly, I wanted at least an EX model and would probably have preferred the plug-in that's about to come out but...this is good.
FYI I've had it for 5 days now and am averaging 50 MPG with a heavy foot. One trip, I averaged 73 MPG and others have landed around 65 MPG for local stuff. Higher MPG results require self control and patience and slow braking to a stop...so I gotta change.
:nerd:Hope this helps.
I also drive 2k+ miles/month. I'm just hoping my NIRO lasts 8 years so I can give it to my son when he's ready to drive.Yeah, I know.
But I'm doing 2,000+ miles a month now so it will equal out when everything is factored.
Car payment + Gas + Maintenance = actually saving $ in the end as crazy as that sounds for being that upside down.
Not really an up and down car buying experience, just a lot of driving and depreciation on my previous vehicle...and soon to be on my current vehicle, that's for sure.
My best advice to you is for these next few years stay on top of any service bulletins and recalls, then compare that to what future Niro model years are like. Sometimes I see people getting rid of one year model for a better one, all so the next 7-8 years of ownership are that much better.I also drive 2k+ miles/month.
