After 5 years of truly enjoyable driving, my dear Ruby has now been traded in yesterday for a new PHEV (2018 Kia Niro EX Premium). She served our family well and gave us 50,000 miles of fun and fuel economy. My decision was mostly based on getting the new safety technology (lane assist, blind spot alerts, adaptive cruise control, forward radar collision braking...), and partly to get red HOV lane stickers (it's a California thing). Just felt for the price it was time to trade to a newer PHEV with longer EV range while the CMax still had good value and before any import tariffs might raise prices. So while I'll occasionally lurk here, my best to you all for what you have taught me about PHEV driving, battery life, OBD2 readers and car modifications. Be well, and good driving to all. As we used to sign off in the days of CB radio, "Y'all keep the shiny side up and the greasy side down and we'll see ya on the flip flop."
