Our 19 Niro Hev has been top notch for reliability . I used subscribe to Consumers Reports but got fed up with the way that organization was getting . IE I'm far from wealthy and they seemed at the time to be catering to higher end wealthier people .

Unfortunately, it is getting harder and harder to find unbiased information, regardless of the topic.

Consumer Reports have catered to what they think people want for many years. That’s why Bose consistently get good reviews. Ask any audiophile and they will tell you that for true, authentic music reproduction, Bose is horrible, even though most people like how they sound.

Owner of 2019 Niro PHEV checking in. My transmission was replaced (fortunately under warranty) at 14000 miles. Other than that and a couple of minor factory service bulletins it’s been fine.

CR reliability reports are, as I understand it, based entirely on subscriber responses to questionnaires. Regardless of opinions on how they rate cars in general, reliability ratings should be free of editorial bias.
