Great for the first 3 months!

Model Year:





Niro Hybrid

Complaint Resolution:

Yes, by the dealer

Car is great. Roomy backseat. Great styling. Drives well. Great gas mileage. The trunk area is very small but the car is well designed in all other ways. I was very happy with my first Kia until the electrical water pump broke and the car was no longer drivable. This

Backup warning wakes the dead - regret buying

Model Year:





Niro Hybrid

Maybe it's only the plug-ins, but Kia set the backup warning so loud that the neighbors complain, people stop and stare, etc. It's as loud as a dump truck. There's no way to adjust the volume. I didn't back it up during the test drive (who knew?). Get a Toyota.
