You were discussing them. I was being skeptical. While that is interesting, I'm still skeptical. I did find a picture of the PTC heater in the manual here: Kia Niro : Heater Unit Components and components location : HeaterWell, I thought we were talking about self-regulating heaters with positive temperature coefficient (PTC) resistors.
If it were lower ( like the ioniq ) I would not have purchased the niro.Just something aesthetic, but I think the car would look much better lower, more like a hatchback instead of being a crossover. The ride height is comfortable but from having a Suburban and also low profile sports cars, it just feels like it would be more naturally lower when I'm driving it or taking it through a turn.
That's what I have right now on my Niro as well. It works fine but just doesn't look as tidy as the Home Link Buttons on my other vehicle.Isn't a dedicated garage remote on the passenger shade simple and easy enough to use? That's what I do. Big button, easy to hit (very old opener).
Something I'd change if I could, would be to make the lane keep assist a little more aggressive. My friend has a Nissan leaf, and he almost doesn't need to touch the steering wheel at all on the freeway. But my niro tends to wait until I'm almost or completely outside my lane before it reacts, and sometimes doesn't pull the car back into the lane all the way, letting the car keep drifting outside the lane further. Not that I want to rely on LKA or anything, but it would be nice if it was aggressive enough that it actually kept me from hitting a car next to me.If it were lower ( like the ioniq ) I would not have purchased the niro.
Why don't you buy the ioniq?
In general, the number of expected duty cycles before failure on electric door locks is somewhat limited and I'd rather not be replacing all of mine sometime shortly after the warranty runs out.
Great vehicle and no troubles over 9000 miles.I'm starting to car shop, and a Niro is high on my list. From everything I've read, it sounds great and I'd love to have one!
For you owners, is there anything about it you don't care for or would change? Everyone always is quick to list the things that they love, but I'm not looking for people to bash on it either.
Thanks in advance!
I would love to know where you get that data from that the electric door locking mechanism is prone to wear out and fail?
