Re: Hello

I am still having sleepless nights about the purchase we have made as it is alot of money in any ones language. £300 per month for such an expensive car is a bargain and I appreciate there's no such thing as a free meal so that money must cover the costs involved and the finance company'a profit. I ...

Re: Hello

Again thanks for the replies. HaxbyPete ref lects the Eutopia of a three year lease where you drive off in a new car and three years later you wash it and hand it back. My ownership will be a bit more involved as I maintain the car and try and decide how long to keep the car such that it still has s...

Re: Hello

I suppose I should start a new post but you guys seem to keep picking me up. The battery charge meter seems to peak at about 60%. In my ignorance I expect it to go higher and thus provide more assistance and better fuel economy. Does this concur with your battery reading.

Re: Hello

Thanks everyone. I used to have a Fiat Croma with 225 45 18 and was lucky to get 20k hence I would have preferred the 16" but 23k versus 29k does not seem too bad. Not sure how my previous owner got 16k but that was over 24 months so perhaps it was lots of short journeys with lots of manoeuvring

Re: Hello

Thanks for your prompt replies. I am still on the first tank of fuel so definitely early days yet. The reading is 57 mpg which included two shopping trips at 30mph in Darlington and a return trip to Knaresborough (80 miles) on the A1 at 70 mph so perhaps I am in the right ball park after all.

Hello

We have just purchased a 2017 First edition. Personally I would have preferred a Niro 2 but the prospect of heated seats was too big a temptation for the other half. I have read that the Niro 2 returns better MPG and has a better ride due to it's 16" wheels. Is there any substance to this?
