Like many internet auto forums this is a great forum newbees and wannabees like me to learn about a car before investing $30K. And of course current owners as well. I appreciate all the past & present input from y'all. :x

One thing that would really be a nice addition is if we could get someone from a Kia dealership that is passionate about Niros active on this site. The Outback forum I'm a part of has several Subie dealers and mechanics who do a great job providing useful answers and often clearing up owner misconceptions.

If you know any such person(s), please encourage them to participate here! :)

Wonderful Michael, it's fantastic to know you are on this site!
When you say you are the "Niro guy" do you mean that you are in sales, a mechanic or ???

Quick question: I am hoping to buy a 2019 Niro EX Premium w Sunroof in the next couple month or two. The pickings here in the Seattle area are kinda slim for that particular configuration. Do you know or can you find out if all the 2019 PHEV's coming to the US now on shore & in dealerships or are more on their way?
Thanks!

I'm a sales guy, and as for the sunroof package, they made 189 units with them. I managed to snag 3 EX Premiums but I don't know yet if they will have the sunroof. I'll check when I get VINs and let you know!

Wow, that is interesting info, 189 SRs doesn't sound like many. Over how long of a period is that & is it for your region only or for the entire U.S.

<<I'll check when I get VINs and let you know!>> I'm in Seattle and NM is a little far for me to go for a car!
Can you access info regarding the port of entry here in the Pacific NW (Tacoma or Portland I think) and see if there are any more 2019 EX premiums coming or if they have all been assigned to dealer for the 2019 model year?

Thanks!

I was looking for a red ex premium and found this the best way to search for specific make/models/colors. https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/new/searchresults.action?sourceContext=untrackedWithinSite_false_0&newSearchFromOverviewPage=true&inventorySearchWidgetType=AUTO&entitySelectingHelper.selectedEntity=c28818&entitySelectingHelper.selectedEntity2=&zip=98111&distance=200&searchChanged=true&trimNames=EX+Premium+FWD&installedOptionIds=2&modelChanged=false&filtersModified=true


I did a search for 200 miles and there are 14 EX premium with sun roofs listed in your area. You can change the search radius and limit by color. I found it helpful to track how quickly cars were moving in my area, and when new shipments arrived. Much easier than using each dealers page, and more accurate than Kia's website for some reason.

Great suggestions Beth -- I can see you are a researcher too!
I've been on board with Cargurus & watching local websites for months. Right now there are only two in silver with charcoal interior & the unfortunately the dealers are well aware of it. One has been there for two months.
