As we emerge from Shelter in Place or simply practice social distancing, thought it would be nice to start a thread so we can share our adventures while driving our Seltos.

Today, took the access road up Cuesta Grade in SLO, CA. The AWD got me up to the top safe and sound. Descent Control brought me back down. Gotta say it was worth it!

Today its a trip the beach to go surf fishing....
Limited parking on the wharf so cool pictures were tough to come by. Gotta say tools from working on an MGA, fishing gear, and a couple overnight bags fit perfectly. Added bonus - fancy enough for the valet at the hotel while looking way nicer than the plain SUVs there!

Averaged 32 MPG!

So went down to SoCal to visit family. Took Seltos out to the ranch. Although not 4WD, the AWD handled to trail rather well.



Drive was comfortable and handled traffic well. Also saw my first Seltos on the 57 Fwy - Grey Seltos S!

Washington State - OK, so this was a really long road trip. Central CA to outside Seattle WA. Lots of miles and some beautiful scenery. Seltos cruised beautifully and held a weeks worth of luggage! Think I might need a roof rack - more luggage and storage means longer road trips!



Where has everyone else been travelling?

So quick trip to LA to pick up some air purifiers and drop off some items to friends. Had to take the air purifiers out of the boxes did get all nine to fit. Also had three storage bins, two medium boxes and a couple smaller boxes. Enough room for the driver and that was it. I have to admit the safety features helped with lane changes on the freeway.


Even with all cargo space used up, OK gas mileage. Gas milage was at about 28 average but they may have been caused

So, two more road trips done. Central CA to Tucson AZ. Wonderful trip. Only averaged 32MPG. Think this was due in part to some head winds. Forgot to take pictures!

This past weekend - helping family move so had to stop in San Francisco. Much better mileage - 34.2MPG. Some city but mostly freeway driving. In the cool weather, the heated seats were perfect. DCT did OK in the city traffic of SF.

Not too many opportunities to take a picture of the Seltos, however one from the parking space would've been perfect. Parking structure had a few spaces left. Clearly marked SMALL CAR ONLY. Goods news, Seltos fit. Would've been nice to get a picture with the Chevy Bolt next to it for the SMALL CAR ONLy comparison.

Quickly approaching 18,000 miles 8 months of ownership!

Perhaps a few scenic pictures are OK.

just finished a trip from florida where I bought it back to texas where I live. The vehichle was a dream on the highway with plenty of power on tap. I found that I only get 27 mpg so far on the highways traveling about 78 mph but it has only had 4 tanks of fuel through it. I’m hoping that improves some. The fuel tank is a little bit smaller than I like, I would love to fit an extra 2-3 gallons of gas which I believe it only has a 12 gallon tank as that is as much I could fit in the tank when it was empty.

So, back from another road trip. Went to Lake Tahoe for a week. Well over 1200 miles total. Was a dream to drive. Averaged about 32 MPG. Some dirt and gravel roads so used the AWD!
