UVO anyone ?

Has anyone found a really good purpose for UVO on their Niro yet ? I downloaded the App into my iPhone and then paired it up with my new Niro HEV. It took quite am lot of doing, with many attempts to pair sitting in the car, but I got there in the end. Now I am left thinking 'so what' ? It doesn't s...

Re: Goodbye all

What a shame that you have had to hand back your Niro to the leasing company. Did they charge a penalty for early termination of the contract ? My lease says that I will have to pay half of the balance of lease payments outstanding if I want to terminate the contract early. Anyway, I hope that you a...

Re: PHEV or HEV??

I just acquired a second Niro 4 HEV after first having a 2016 First Edition three years ago. That was in Ocean Blue. I also looked at the PHEV this time around and, though it says it will drive up to 30 miles per charge on electric there is still a significant difference in price - and no longer any...

Re: Looking for an excellent used Niro HEV ?

The reason I went for Leasing (Contract Hire) three years ago is simply this. Nothing to do with mileage - everything to do with money ! When I first saw the Niro, brand new to the market in 2016 and a very exciting hybrid car, the Ocean Blue one on the dealers showroom floor was a First Edition wit...

Re: Low on Fuel

That message usually poops up on my Niro HEV at the same time that the 'low fuel' alarm rings and a light shines on the dash board. Which is usually with around 30 miles to go yet - according to the fuel remaining gauge. So I have never had the courage to push it to 'empty' but I do know that I have...

Re: New Nero4 . Boot access?

Last time I did it on the previous Niro it has one 'sprung' end. So you move it to the right (or left forget which) and it will spring out of it's locating socket at that end. To re-fit just reverse the process. But I haven't had the need to remove the load cover in my New Niro yet so I am guessing ...

Re: Hello

Yes, Leasing has its benefits and I was very unsure whether to go down this path three years ago. But I am very pleased It did. My 2016 First Edition had only done 15K+ when I came to change it and was still in 'showroom' condition. If I had owned it I would have had to think of all that hassle of p...

Re: Kiro niro 3 ( 2020 )

So is that a Plug-in or a Self Charging Niro 3 you have ? I agree with the Lane Follow Assist coming on as a default is a pain, and I have tried to cancel it out on the settings, but I just have to push that cancel button every time I start the car up. Problem is that it is hidden below the steering...

Re: Hello

I have had a "First Edition" since they were first launched in 2016. I recently changed it, at the end of the three year lease, for another Niro 4 HEV in the upgraded model. I have been delighted with both these cars thoughout and, curiously, I never gave a second thought as to how many extra miles ...
