Re: Minor downsides of the Niro's specification

The biggest scare for me is the lack of an available handbrake, but she did really well over the 29 miles we drove.

You could do a front rear swap now & then all your tyres will be ready to swap at a similar

Minor downsides of the Niro's specification

Our daughter has just turned 17 and have found one or two minor flaws to the car. I bought both magnetic & inside window L plates and thought that would cover all situations. Firstly putting one on the bonnet it wouldn't grip, thought the bonnet was too wet as it was raining, but then remembered alu...

Re: Bulb upgrade

Let us know how you get on....The reviews of those bulbs on Amazon suggest that they don't last very long - several suggesting a life of around 3 months. Perhaps the people buying them don't realise that you mustn't handle them without gloves, or perhaps the ones on Amazon are counterfeit, as sever...

Agreed about the ease. They must be the easiest of any car I've owned.

Re: Michelin Cross Climate - fuel economy impact?

My Cross Climates lasted 19000 or so on the front tyres, but I try to conserve momentum in corners (for fuel economy saving of course!!!) so that may have a factor in it, also the PHEV is heavier than the 2 so that won't help, but I feel they do wear more quickly.

Re: New Owner

From reading the blurb it looks like the Adaptive Cruise is now stop & go so perhaps the lane assist works below 40mph

Re: What size SD card is advisable for the sat/nav etc. in the Niro hybrid

Hi Guys, Thank you for your feedback. As you said Alan their should have already been an SD card installed but on removing the dust cover from the SD slot there wasn't one. This being my first car with built in sat/nav I was unsure. The good news is, after posting my query, I checked through all th...

Re: High beam assist

No the Niro 4 dosn't have High Beam Assist, something that I would find helpful having driven a Citroen with it before purchasing my Niro. My other gripe with the car is that the software should be updated so that the digital speedo can display kph and not just mph. Very useful if you take the car ...
