Re: Minor irritation with Niro

Minor irritation with Niro

It took a while but I have found things that bug me about The Niro. Opening the window when the car is wet causes a torrent of water to cascade onto you and your passengers. Non of the controls are backlit, haven’t a clue what I am trying to press. Carpets are terrible. Didn’t expect Roller luxury b...

Re: PHEV:- ICE vs EV mileage

Thanks for this.

Doesn’t matter very much in the grand scheme of things, basically being nosy.

Re: EV mileage and noise

I have the Niro PHEV. I have noticed the same drop in petrol mileage when running on battery. The ICE has been used for heating, but it does turn off once the cabin temperature has been reached.

Re: Best and Worst Thing About Your Niro

The heating thing is probably the thing which is most annoying. However, this is made acceptable by the ICE switching off when cabin temp is reached.
My only wish is that it was The eNiro.

Re: Lead time/waiting time

Hi I was promised 2018 plate PHEV delivery with new battery range up to 60miles, is it correct pl Think this is untrue. If Kia just doubled the battery range people would either be raving about it or moaning about the loss of boot space. Obviously I have my nose stuck in the Internet at all things ...

Re: Lead time/waiting time

So that’s another ETA on delivery been and gone. (7/1/19) and still nothing from Kia. I get the reason for delay, but the information from customer services is terrible. Ordered in July. Beyond a joke.
