Welcome aboard. Hope you enjoy the car - we do ours (EX Purchased in FEB 2017).

No significant issue with ours - do feel a bit of the surging, stutter, whatever, to call it that some others feel (and a few have had a major issue with).

Recommend start a FUELLY account for your car. Good way to keep your MPG record and let others in the world know.

Thanks, will do. I do feel the sluggishness in the gas from stop, but coming from a V6 to a hybrid thats prob expected. I hope this car will keep me happy :)

Have you tried sport mode? It removes the sluggishness. I put it in sport mode if I'm pulling out into busy traffic. Then shift back to eco mode after I get up to speed. It kills mpg so I only do it when I really kind of need the response and power.

Ah. did not know that. I have to really sit with this and try everything out this weekend. Just got the car yesterday. Lots of features in the 2018 model I have to get familiar with. I dont even know how to switch to sports mode, lol.

Maybe some day I’ll actually see one of these other NJ Niros on the roads (saw one once but before I bought mine)!
